When it comes to the inevitable slash-fiction between Joe Manganiello and Paul Reubens’ Pee-wee Herman character, the hunky actor isn’t scared.
Manganiello plays himself in the new Netflix film Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, and serves as the iconic character’s new friend and obsession.
In an interview with A.V. Club, the recent newlywed was asked if he’s prepared for all the slash fic that’s going to come out because of the movie.
After it’s explained to him that slash fic means people will start to imagine him and Pee-wee as a couple, Manganiello says he’s more than ready.
“I mean, I was on True Blood for years,” he answered. “There’s some really, really weird shit written about that show. So listen, man, ’weird’ is my middle name. I’m ready for anything. The weirder, the better.”
Pee-wee’s Big Holiday is currently streaming on Netflix, and you can check out a trailer for the movie below.
