Hunky “True Blood” werewolf Joe Manganiello stopped by “Hello Ross” on Friday (Oct. 25), where he talks about movie “Magic Mike,” his popular HBO vampire drama and takes a pop culture quiz about Halloween (video above).

Favorite scary movie
: “When I was nine years old, me and my little friend snuck into ‘Pet Cemetery’ and it terrified me.”

Favorite Halloween candy: “I don’t see ’em that much anymore but when I was a little kid they used to have these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups that were crunchy.”

Favorite Halloween memory: “As the story goes, when I was three, my mother dressed me up as Dracula. Once again, what are we doing with kids? And they brought me to a huanted house at three and a vampire jumped out of a coffin and scared everyone and at three yars old, I went up to the coffin and put my hands up and the vampire picked me up and put me in the coffin with him and closed the lid.”

First costume that turned him on: “As a kid, the first memory of ‘Hey, what’s going on here?’ was probably Princess Leia in the Jabba slave outfit. I coinc
identally met Carrie Fisher several years ago and told her that and she said we’ve gotta get married right now. We could have a reality show, we could call it ‘Star Blood.'”

Look for Manganiello next summer in the final season of “True Blood.”
