To be fair, there were a lot of great things at DragonCon that had nothing to do with Joe Manganiello. But as much as I loved those awesome panels with the Buffy cast and Q&A with Sherrilyn Kenyon, I’m pretty sure that neither of them will be feeding my fantasies for six seconds, much less the next six months. Joe, however, will provide solid fantasy fodder for the foreseeable future. So let’s dish.
The True Blood panel was the very first event I attended when I arrived at the convention on Friday. It featured Joe, Kristen (Pam), Jim (Hoyt), and Charlaine Harris. I can’t say they shared anything particularly groundbreaking. Charlaine did her standard speech about how the show would be boring if it followed the books too closely (Bullshit!) Everyone went on and on about how awesome Alan Ball is (Barf.) Jim talked about how he’d like to play a darker side of Hoyt, since he has been so thoroughly betrayed by his mother, then Jessica, and now Jason. And my favorite Joe moment was during the audience Q&A, when a woman told him she was a lesbian, but that she’d like to do him anyway. (Wouldn’t we all?)
