London: Actor Joe Manganiello has revealed that 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, reportedly.

"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 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.
