The Magic Mike actor debuted his new haircut with a photo on his Instagram feed, showing off the edgy look while cuddling with his dog, Bubbles. While he kept his scruffy beard, Manganiello decided to try out a mini faux hawk, with the sides of his head shaved, cutting a sharp line where the long hair starts on the top.
He showed off his more intense side in the second pic taken by his hairstylist Mira Chai Hyde, who also works with Steven Yeun, Pedro Pascal and many more A-list stars. The black-and-white photo featured Manganiello sitting in a chair with a serious expression, looking to the side.
Fans were excited about the look, with comments like, "Looking good ❤️," "Fresh! 🔥❤️," and "Handsome AF," while others shared some love for Bubbles, such as one who wrote, "Bubbles is adorable as usual! 🥰."
Some thought the new haircut looked familiar, noting that Manganiello wore a similar style while playing the fan-favorite DCEU character Deathstroke in Zack Snyder's Justice League.
While the future of the DCEU is relatively unknown, many have hopes that Manganiello might reprise his role in a new project. Considering the actor is reportedly close with James Gunn, one of the people leading the movie universe's development, it's possible.
"Is Deathstroke coming back?!??!" asked one fan in the comments of Manganiello's latest photo, while someone else simply replied, "DEATHSTROKE!!!!"
Most recently, Manganiello starred opposite Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson in the film The Kill Room, while he has a couple of exciting projects coming up. Meanwhile, the 47-year-old seems to be doing well in the wake of his divorce from Vergara. He has been dating his new girlfriend, Caitlin O'Connor, for a while now, and they even made their red carpet debut in December.
