Fans of both 'True Blood' star Joe Manganiello and 'How I Met Your Mother' were excited to see the actor's long-awaited return in last night's "The Stamp Tramp," even if Marshall's law school chum Brad looked a bit different than we were used to. In a shocking twist, it turned out that Brad had actually been playing Marshall, and setting him up for the biggest case of his career! Will the former friends be able to work it out going head to head in court during next week's "Twelve Horny Women"? Check out the latest clip to find out!
Though Joe Manganiello and his trademark scruff remains fairly well known these last few years, thanks largely to his regular role on 'True Blood' and appearances in hot-button films like 'Magic Mike, one only need look as far back as 2002's 'Spider-Man' to see the burly actor look surprisingly fresh-faced. So too did Manganiello make numerous appearances on 'How I Met Your Mother,' a role to be reprised in the coming weeks, but looking quite different than we remember!
Not only will the actor be sporting a fake gut, but his 'True Blood' style scruff makes him nearly impossible to recognize for those who remember the character. Get a first look inside!
Fans of 'True Blood and 'How I Met Your Mother' know doubt recognize that the chiseled Joe Manganiello guested in early season before making a bigger name for himself on the sexy HBO drama as Alcide Herveaux. We were excited to hear that Manganiello would reprise his role as Marshall's law school chum Brad, but that was before we got a load of the first picture from his November 5 appearance in "Splitsville!" Has the buff star finally let himself go?
