Joe Manganiello teases new season of 'True Blood' (and forthcoming fitness book with a foreward by Schwarzenegger)

Last week, Joe Manganiello was in New York City promoting Magnum Gold (?!) ice cream with the premiere of the Magnum-sponsored short film As Good As Gold at the Tribeca Film Festival. (Yes, he jokes, the man behind Magic Mike‘s Big Dick Richie shilling Magnum is “synergy.” See a photo from when he popped by the EW offices below.) But don’t worry, the actor’s still in top form filming the new season of HBO’s True Blood, which premieres June 16.

New showrunner Brian Buckner starts season 6 with a bang, Manganiello says. “He’s letting loose a lot of the things that he’s wanted to do the past few years and maybe didn’t get around to doing.” Last we saw Alcide, he’d just become the new pack master. “He’s in charge of this unruly group of werewolves, and it’s not the best job in the world. I’ll just say that,” the actor adds. Actually, we got a bit more out of him: Alcide will have more sex, he confirms. “Whether or not there are Hong Kong wires, I don’t want to give any of that away,” he says, laughing. “But we definitely get into some territory that hasn’t been covered yet on True Blood. I thought I’d done it all, seen it all, but they somehow found a way to top last year.” READ FULL STORY

'Hannibal's Mads Mikkelsen: Lecter is the devil... 'but I kind of like him'

“I don’t find you that interesting,” Hugh Dancy’s disturbed FBI profiler tells Hannibal Lecter in NBC’s new serial-killer thriller, Hannibal.

Maybe, but we certainly do. Since coming to life in Thomas Harris’s 1981 novel, Red Dragon, Lecter has tantalized and terrorized readers and moviegoers alike, most notably in The Silence of the Lambs, the 1991 movie that won Anthony Hopkins his Best Actor Oscar.

Tonight, Lecter is reborn — younger and more stylish than ever — with Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen playing the brilliant psychiatrist long before he’s captured or even suspected of his gruesome crimes. Counseling Dancy’s Will Graham, whose ability to envision the most evil of deeds comes at a psychological cost, Mikkelsen’s Lecter is still safe behind a mask of respectability.

Mikkelsen, no stranger himself to playing a memorable villain (Casino Royale), initially hesitated at the opportunity to step into the role, but creator Bryan Fuller (Heroes) sold him on the relationship between Lecter and Graham. “It’s all about Will,” says Mikkelsen. “Everything circles around his character, and he’s a troubled man. I believe I can help him, either to get out of that trouble or to embrace that trouble.”

The actor sat down with EW at a Manhattan coffee shop to talk about the show, which premieres tonight at 10 p.m. For the record, there were no fava beans or chianti on the menu. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman talks about last night's fatalities-filled season finale

Who will live and who will die? That was the question on the lips of fans before last night’s episode of the Walking Dead. Of course, given the nature of AMC’s undead saga, that tends to be the question on the lips of fans before every episode. But this week the query had a particular urgency given the (correct) assumption that the season finale would finally feature the showdown between the Rick-lead prison-ites and the Governor-ruled Woodburians.

'Walking Dead' Q&A: Robert Kirkman talks the Governor, Andrea, and THAT shocking climax

Tonight’s episode of AMC‘s zombie saga the Walking Dead was a great one for fans who love Andrea — and arguably an even better one for those who don’t. Beware of SPOILERS.

'Hannibal' teaser: 'His name may ring a bell' -- VIDEO

So here’s the thing about NBC’s Hannibal: even though we know that the clever serial-killing Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) will help catch other serial killers before — spoiler: inevitably — getting caught himself, we know very little about the show itself. It’s a thriller from Bryan Fuller, premiering on April 4. Hugh Dancy plays Will Graham, the FBI profiler previously played by William Peterson (Manhunter) and Edward Norton (Red Dragon). And… that’s about it, save for one fractal 30-second teaser released back in February.

And now we can add another 15 seconds of footage to the evidence with another, even shorter, teaser. Do we learn anything new? No. Does the footage satisfy the double requirements of high-class gore and puns? Absolutely.

A warning, though: someone’s arm was probably harmed in the making.

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's show

The-Walking-Dead

The characters on The Walking Dead spent most of tonight’s show enjoying a nice, quiet day — if the word “nice” can be used to describe (in the case of Rick) searching for the ghost of your recently eaten-by-zombies wife and (in the case of Daryl) reminiscing about being physically abused by your father. But things turned very nasty in the final fifteen minutes as the Governor and his goons sent hirsute convict Axel to the great Lynyrd Skynyrd concert in the sky and unleashed a, literal, van-load of walkers onto our beleaguered heroes.

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman on tonight's midseason premiere and the unexpected return of [SPOILER]

There was an abundance of seemingly crazy decisions in this week’s episode of AMC’s back-from-winter-break zombie show, The Walking Dead. Daryl (Norman Reedus) opted to head off into the woods with his nutjob brother Merle (Michael Rooker) while Andrea (Laurie Holden) made an impassioned speech in support of life at Woodbury, despite its leader’s fondness for utilizing fish tank-dwelling decapitated zombie heads as decorative furnishings. But by the end of the episode it was clear that the man really going off his rocker was Andrew Lincoln’s increasingly troubled and hallucination-prone Rick.

Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker bro down on the cover of 'The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine' issue #3 -- EXCLUSIVE

The recent midseason finale of The Walking Dead finally saw Daryl and Merle Dixon reunited shortly before the closing credits. It’s almost like the producers deliberately left fans wanting more!!! (Of course, as Walking Dead exec producer Robert Kirkman told yours truly, that was indeed their dastardly plan all along).

'Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's midseason finale and the surprise return of [SPOILER]

While tonight’s midseason finale of AMC’s drama The Walking Dead technically belonged in the zombie genre there were times when it looked more like an old school war movie as Rick and his fellow prison-dwellers made their move on Woodbury. “I was there for the filming of this episode,” says Walking Dead executive producer and Walking Dead comic writer Robert Kirkman. “We filmed what I like to call ‘the machine gun scenes’ from two to four in the morning. We got some complaints.”

'Walking Dead' executive producer Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's show, 'When the Dead Come Knocking'

Matters turned grim on tonight’s Walking Dead — which is rather impressive for a show which tends to feature more zombie mayhem before its opening credits than Downton Abbey does in an entire season (come on, you lazy aristocratic bastards!).

'Walking Dead' executive producer Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's show, 'Hounded'

Love was in the air during tonight’s episode of the Walking Dead – and that’s not a sentence you get to write too often. But Andrea and the Governor’s taking of their relationship to the next level wasn’t the only big news as Merle and his goons made the mistake of trying to take down Michonne and we found out just who has been calling Rick.
