True Blood May Have Cost Joe Manganiello the Role of Superman

One of the main actors that was in the running for Zack Snyder’s Superman was Joe Manganiello. The True Blood star received a huge push from fans that seemed to put him up at the top of the wish-list of actor who could play Superman.

In a recent interview, the actor revealed how scheduling conflicts with True Blood was ultimately the downfall of his chances to portray The Man of Steel.

“At the end of the day they wanted me to screen test and they actually asked for my measurements for the suit and everything…Their shoot date switched and it would have taken up 11 weeks out of my True Blood schedule. At the end of the day, we couldn’t get the schedule to work so that I could go off and screen test. So, regrettably, I never got to screen test, I never got to put the suit on.”

I gotta say that really bites the big one but ultimately Joe will do just fine. He will actually have a really big part in the upcoming 4th season of True Blood.

I mean how can you pass up the chance to be this guy:
