Joe Manganiello Joins Cast of Pee-Wee Herman’s New Movie

My favorite announcement of the week!

From Pee-Wee’s blog:

Finally! I can announce the secret I’ve been carrying around with me for weeks: the coolest actor on the planet, my friend Joe Manganiello, is joining the cast of my new movie, ‘Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’. Who does he play? I didn’t say…

Joe’s already my friend in real life– and he’s tremendously talented and a terrific person! I am so glad we are FINALLY going to get to work together! This totally makes up for being cut out of ‘Magic Mike’ and ‘Magic Mike 2’!”

Manganiello remarked, “Paul Reubens is one of the great comic geniuses of our time. Growing up, my Saturday mornings were all about Pee-wee Herman. I saw everything he did. I can’t believe that I’m going to get to share scenes with one of the iconic figures of my childhood.”

I’m a HUGE Pee-Wee Herman fan. (And of course Joe, but that goes without saying…)
