Two and a Half Men may have found a way to build upon its stellar premiere week ratings: Alcide is coming to Malibu!

EW has learned exclusively that True Blood star Joe Manganiello will make an appearance in the Oct. 24 episode of the CBS comedy. He’ll play the smoldering hot boyfriend (as if he could play anything less) of Bridget, the ex-wife of Walden (Ashton Kutcher). Bridget will be portrayed by Judy Greer, who makes her first appearance on Monday.

Manganiello just wrapped his fourth season of True Blood but he’s definitely staying ripped for other, um, important endeavors: EW already reported exclusively that he will play Big Dick Richie in Steven Soderbergh’s movie about male strippers. He’s also set to star opposite his old school chum Matt Bomer in an episode of USA’s White Collar that will air in January.
