Sunday: The Men of ‘True Blood’ Season 5

Add this share

Yes, yes. #WaitingSucks and all. But your patience pays off as the fifth season of “True Blood” returns with the shirtless studs you know and love plus the addition of “SVU” and “Oz” beefcake Christopher Meloni. This is how we bide the time.

We’ve taken lingering looks of Ryan Kwanten before – twice – but Joe Manganiello has his own wing in the daily Morning Fix. We’ve ogled him as a fireman and boxer on the beach, baring it for Muscle & Fitness, and just generally being built for “True Blood.”

As part of how we get psyched for the Season 5 premiere on Sunday in our own way, we include more Kwanten and Manganiello intimate glances here too, along with their “True Blood” cohorts Alexander Skarsgard, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell and now, Meloni too. Until the DVR cues up, rev your engines for Eric, Alcide, Jason, Sam, Bill and Meloni’s new badass Roman with these photos.

Sure, many of the shots in this gallery aren’t from “True Blood,” but um … you’re welcome.
