  • -Our next guess is a great actor who stars in and produced

  • the new movie "Archenemy,"

  • which is theaters, on demand, and on digital next Friday.

  • Here is Joe Manganiello!

  • Yo! Wow!

  • -Hey, Jim. -Lookin' good, bud.

  • Whoa, whoa, whoa! Is that...

  • Is that real? No more... -This is real.

  • This is freshly shaved as of this morning.

  • -Wow! -Yeah.

  • -No more Mohawk. -No more Mohawk.

  • But it's amazing how much --

  • Like, a Mohawk is that much hair.

  • But you take it off, and you're freezing.

  • -Joe, what am I see in the corner of the screen?

  • Is there a special guest? -[ Chuckles ] Yeah.

  • This is my sidekick. -Yes!

  • -This is -- This is -- -Oh, no!

  • This is -- This is Bubbles.

  • -Bubbles. Hi, Bubbles.

  • Thank you so much for coming on the show.

  • I appreciate it. Oh, my gosh. -[ Chuckles ]

  • -How cute is that. Oh, my God. -This is Bubbles'

  • first appearance on "The Tonight Show."

  • -And will not be her last.

  • So, Bubbles, you're allowed back whenever.

  • -[ Chuckles ]

  • -Joe, there's a ton of stuff I want to talk to you about,

  • But, first, congrats. I know you just celebrated

  • your five-year wedding anniversary

  • with your lovely wife, Sofía Vergara.

  • Congrats on that.

  • We've talked before about how you and Sofía started dating.

  • But you -- were you always smooth when it came to dating?

  • Because I want to know about this guy.

  • This... -That guy -- not so smooth

  • with the dating, Jimmy. Yeah, not so smooth.

  • -Look at the arms, bud. Oh, my gosh.

  • -Mm-hmm. -Dude, when did it change?

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • -It changed around age 16.

  • Then, I got contact lenses,

  • and the working out was starting to happen.

  • All the protein shakes were starting to take effect.

  • And I also -- I got a phone call from a friend of mine,

  • who said, you know, "How'd you like to make 25 bucks an hour?"

  • At age 16, you say, "Sure. What do I have to do?"

  • They said, "Just come down to our office.

  • Whatever anybody says to you,

  • what they ask, just say you're 21."

  • And I didn't have a license at this time,

  • so I had to have my mother come drop me off at their office.

  • And there was a bunch of adults, and they said --

  • you know, I walked in, they said, "You're the guy?"

  • I said, "Yeah." They said, "How old are you?"

  • I said, "21." They go, "Great. Put this on."

  • And they handed me this pirate suit,

  • with the cape and the eye patch and the wig and the ruffles,

  • the hat, I had a sword.

  • I had a pistola.

  • The little fake booties that go over your shoes

  • to make them look like they're real boots.

  • -Yeah. What were you? -And I was gonna go

  • be Captain Morgan at a bunch of bars in Pittsburgh.

  • -Wow!

  • -And they gave me a backpack that was a tank

  • with a tap on it, full of rum. -[ Laughing ] Oh, my God.

  • -So I went -- -Do you still have that?

  • -Go get everyone drunk. -[ Laughing ] Oh, my God.

  • -So, that led to, like,

  • you know, probably the next decade,

  • I worked in bars. You know, that's how I worked

  • until, like, acting took off

  • where I could pay my bills that way as an artist.

  • I was working in clubs, and so, like,

  • that Captain Morgan job, then, when I was 21 --

  • I worked as Captain Morgan in Pittsburgh from 16 to 21.

  • And then, when I was 21,

  • I got a job working for Finlandia vodka,

  • where I would go out U2's old tour bus full of vodka.

  • We would drive to every major city in America.

  • I was in a tuxedo this time. It was a little classier.

  • -Yeah, you upped your game. -Get everybody drunk.

  • So it was, like, just nonstop wall-to-wall bar jump.

  • But what the point is, circling back, is

  • that that was the best education in men and women and dating.

  • When you are in a club, night after night,

  • watching the animals hunt in the wild...

  • -Wow. -...you learn a lot.

  • So that scrawny kid really got his formal education

  • in women and men and dating and all that.

  • -And look at you now. I mean, come on.

  • I mean, we know you as this giant movie star.

  • And I know that, growing up, wasn't your original dream

  • to also be a writer and director?

  • -Well, yeah, as a kid,

  • that's actually how I got into acting.

  • I made all my own movies,

  • where you do, like, Mafia martial arts movies...

  • with, like, gunshots and, you know, squib.

  • We made homemade squibs when we were kids.

  • -You made a homemade squib, like a blood-explosion squib?

  • -Yeah, so, we would take a firecracker,

  • and then you'd take a condom and you'd fill the condom

  • with Karo syrup and red food coloring.

  • You tie it up. And you get a cookie tin.

  • And you could, like -- If you got really brave,

  • you'd put the cookie tin, like, over your heart.

  • So we'd cut the shirt a little bit,

  • so the wick would come out.

  • And then you had to turn the camera on someone's hand.

  • They had to come in and light the lighter, the wick,

  • and then get your hand out so that we could get the shot.

  • "Oh!" You know, and you'd fall over

  • and, you know, have this flap of skin,

  • and blood would gush out everywhere.

  • -Joe, that was probably a real flap of real skin.

  • You lit a firecracker on someone's chest.

  • -It was -- -[ Laughing ] Oh, my God.

  • -Yeah, it was painful, yeah. -Oh, my gosh.

  • That is unbelievable. Uh, uh, I, uh --

  • I want to talk about your new movie.

  • It's called "Archenemy." And I love the premise.

  • I've never seen a movie like this.

  • I would say it's a superhero movie.

  • But it's more than a superhero movie.

  • It's -- It's a trickier plot.

  • Basically -- DO you want me to set it up?

  • You basically land on a planet.

  • And you're like, "On Earth, I'm a superhero."

  • -Well, maybe. You don't know. -Right.

  • -That's the thing, is, like, everything that you just said

  • is absolutely true, you know, but, you know,

  • is it a superhero movie, or is it not?

  • Because, really, the bulk of it is,

  • I play a maybe borderline schizophrenic character

  • who's also addicted to methamphetamine and alcohol

  • and lives in a tent under a bridge

  • and babbles on and on and on

  • to anybody who will listen to him

  • about being some sort of champion

  • or Superman, superhero from another dimension.

  • So, really, is an exploration about whether or not

  • he's crazy, or is it actually true.

  • -Again, I don't like to spoil anything, but it's great.

  • And I want to show everyone a clip.

  • Here's Joe Manganiello in "Archenemy."

  • Take a look.

  • -You cannot run.

  • Hey, I don't care what you do.

  • You make bad choices, you live with them.

  • It's fine, but the kid deserves his own chance.

  • If you run, they will find you, and they will kill him.

  • -So, what are we supposed to do?

  • -You stay and you fight the war.

  • -Hamster, don't engage with the troll.

  • -Fight the war? -[ Scoffs ]

  • -How are we supposed to do that?

  • -Don't undersell yourself.

  • I'm here with you.

  • I fell through a black hole to get here.

  • And I never knew why until now.

  • It was so I could help you.

  • Both of you.

  • ♪♪

  • -Aww. What did you think, buddy? Oh, he loved it.

  • [ Chuckling ] He loved it.

  • Joe Manganiello, everybody.

  • "Archenemy" is in theaters, on demand, and on digital,

  • starting December 11th.

  • Thank you so much for coming on, bud.

  • It's always great to see you. -Hey, man, thank you so much.

  • I love being here. It's so great.

  • I have so much fun with you. -Stay safe.

-Our next guess is a great actor who stars in and produced
