'True Blood's' Joe Manganiello Guests on 'White Collar' in January
It looks like Matt Bomer may be getting some competition in the looks department when White Collar returns for its second half of Season 3 in January. A True Blood star is lending his good looks and talent to the series for its second half.
Manganiello will play an ex-con who moves across the street from Peter (Tim DeKay) and Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) as the series’ new villain.
Manganiello joined True Blood last season as the werewolf Alcide and was later made a regular for Season 4. He also played Owen on The CW’s One Tree Hill and the recurring guest role of Brad on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother.
