Actor Joe Manganiello has revealedthat he has started writing a potential True Blood spin-off project.

The 37-year-old Magic Mike actor said that he would like to reprise his role of werewolf Alcide Herveaux in the future, reported Digital Spy. "I'd love to play Alcide again. In fact, a year ago I started writing a story for an Alcide movie, or comic book series," he said. "I would love to return maybe in a movie. I would love to do it again," he added.

Explaining why he would like to return as Alcide, he said, "I think there's a lot left on the table that wasn't explored. At the end of the day, the show had nothing to do with my character for a few years.

"So I think there's a lot more left to explore, I love the character."

True Blood will come to an end later this year after its current seventh season. 

Asked whether the HBO series could have continued, he added, "I think it's the right time. I think any longer then it would have been ? excuse the pun 'squeezing blood from a stone'."

Manganiello also revealed that he did not particularly enjoy his character's story arcs over the past couple of seasons.
