'True Blood' Actor Joe Manganiello Talks Season 5, Werewolf Sex

Vampires aren't the only supernaturals getting action in Bon Temps -- just ask Joe Manganiello.

Manganiello, who plays Alcide, teased his role in the remainder of Season 5 to THR.

“I really feel like I’m having the full 'True Blood' experience,” he said. “I get to have sex with a bunch of people. I get around sexually, I kill people. It’s pretty rad.”

As for how he prepared to play a convincing werewolf, Manganiello says he spent time with a furry creature or two.

"I hung out with wolves," Manganiello told "Seriously. I spent time with them, observed them. I watched where their growls came from, how they move, how they interacted. I looked at posture charts and what it means when their tail is tucked a certain way."

"True Blood" airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
