Joe Manganiello On Missing Out On Superman
Talking to The Coventry Telegraph Joe Manganiello talks about how close he came to suiting up as the Man Of Steel and why it didn't work out.
I don't think there is anything that new here, but I picked up on the fact that he seems really disappointed to have narrowly missed out.
In fact from reading it - I get the feeling that maybe he was first choice to play the Man of Steel and he had to pull out, but that's all just speculation on my part...
From Coventry Telegraph:
"The director said I was down to the last two. It's heartbreaking," says 34-year-old Manganiello with a deep sigh, revealing he'd even had his measurements taken for the suit.
"As fate would have it, the show that got me noticed by Snyder was also the show that made it impossible for me to go off and screen test, because Superman overlapped with True Blood. Alan [Ball] made it clear they had big plans for my character and that they weren't willing to share me with Superman.
"I'll have a break in about 10 years," he says with a smile.
