Transcript for Joe Manganiello dishes on 'Smurfs: The Lost Village' live on 'GMA'
see. I have a 2 1/2-year-old niece and 2-year-old nephew and aren't going to be allowed to watch anything uncle Joe has done for a very long time and I have to serve on the board of trustees for Pittsburgh children's hospital and although it's not at all why I do it but I go to the hospital and visit the kids and for years they would say who are you? That's a good thing. Now they know. They go to the hospital. I have to say, it is a little hard to imagine you as a smurf so we'll give everybody a look. Don't let them escape. Is this safe? Well, it's a giant crossbow so I'm going to go with no. Aaagh! Ooh. Incoming bird. Oh. I love those movies. I took my twins to see this a few weeks ago and I'm like still sitting there like that you play hefty smurf. I play hefty, yeah. Strong smurf. Strong. So when you saw the script what made you say yes to doing this. Hefty is such a fun character because he's this big but he's like Normal size strength in a tiny little body and then the other side of it it's juxtaposed with this -- he's kind of this clause sought poet. He's in love with smurfette and sometimes it comes out in very embarrassing moments so a fun thing to play with a little character.

Based on the 1980s video game about giant monsters smashing cities. Should be pretty fun. Niece and nephew won't watch that for awhile in maybe a couple of years but "Magic Mike" maybe never see that ever. Ever. That's kind of an ever movie. Ever. What was he like on the set? He didn't show up with clothes on. Brave. I want to say that I think -- maybe there was maybe like 90% of that scene that the general public did not see because we were -- there is somewhere. But you just said that. S there he are some lost tapes of this guy doing amazing things. Love karaoke. Yes. Which Amy and I love to hear, he hear. What is your go-to song. I've got a surprising strong falsetto voice. Whoa. Didn't see that coming. Something you don't know about me. So probably prince's kiss. There was this famous "Magic Mike" one.
