Just because a guy looks like Hercules doesn't mean he doesn't love geeking out about Tolkien and Dungeons & Dragons. As evidence we present the larger than life Joe Manganiello.
This week on "Happy Sad Confused", Josh welcomes Joe to the podcast and finds himself out-geeked by a guy who looks like a real life superhero.
Manganiello (about to be heard as Hefty Smurf in "Smurfs: The Lost Villge" out this week) discusses almost playing Superman AND Spider-Man, how giving up drinking turned his life and career around, and his passion project, turning Dungeons & Dragons into a franchise. All that and he does a mean Arnold Schwarzenegger.
