The episode description says they’ll be playing a game of Dungeons & Dragons with the show’s geeks.
“I was the 8-year-old kid or the 10-year-old kid playing a barbarian who just went to a weight room for the next 30 years to try to become the barbarian,” Manganiello said while doing press for the episode.
William Shatner and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are some other big names appearing in the show airing on KDKA every Thursday at 8 p.m.
Dungeons & Dragons is nothing new to Manganiello.
