Military Drama SIX Casts Joe Manganiello As Star


Mini-series Six has cast Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike XXL) as co-star for the military drama on the History channel.


The show follows a brotherhood of modern American warriors, Navy SEAL Team Six, whose 2014 mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with the terrorists.

Manganiello will be co-starring alongside Barry Sloane. He will play Rip Taggart, a gruff, haggard, and aggressive military man who was once the squad leader of Seal Team Six. Five years later, Rip is working in Africa, protecting a small village from Boko Haram.
