Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes. He takes his top off in True Blood and Magic Mike — Hear Joe Manganiello declare himself the shirtless poster boy in today's PopSugar Rush. "I have had a lot of practice, in fact I think I'm the poster boy for it I would think at this point." Joe Manganiello says he should be the face, or rather, body, of shirtlessness, since he's showing so much skin on both True Blood and the upcoming movie Magic Mike. PopSugar editor Lindsay Miller chatted with Joe about his sexy roles on Sunday at the annual Stuart House benefit thrown by John Varvatos, but Mr. Manganiello said his Magic Mike costars didn't need his advice about stripping down for the cameras. "They were all fine, I'm sure McConaughey certainly has had his share. Kevin Nash from the WWE, I mean that guy has spent the past 20 years running around in his speedo in front of the cameras, so I think they were all right, everybody did all right." Magic Mike is loosely based on Channing Tatum's past as an exotic dancer, and Joe says there couldn't be a better guy to share the screen with. "Really down to earth, really funny, really cool just great guy, so I love Channing and I look forward to working with him again." Magic Mike is scheduled to hit theaters on June 29th.
