Joe Manganiello should watch his back, because joining True Blood as the new love interest of everyone's favorite telepath has its dangers, including deadly vampire lovers who don't need more competition.  

The One Tree Hill star has been cast as Alcide Herveaux, the new werewolf in town who cozies up to Sookie (Anna Paquin), TVGuide.com has confirmed. In the casting call, Alcide is described as good-looking, rough-around-the-edges, articulate, heroic, and decent, but not what he seems.

In the closing moments of Season 2, Bill (Stephen Moyer) was kidnapped. This will lead Sookie to search far and wide for her lover when the show returns. If executive producer Alan Ball sticks to Charlaine Harris' novels, Alcide will be on the hunt with her on Eric's request.
