Oh momma, look who’s joining Mom.

EW has learned exclusively that Joe Manganiello, last seen with hardly nothing on in Magic Mike XXL, will play opposite Anna Faris in an upcoming episode of the CBS sitcom.

Manganiello will play Julian, a newcomer to Alcoholics Anonymous who Christy (Faris) takes under her wing. It’s not so easy for Christy to help him, though, since Julian is so dang hot.

The actor will tape his episode next week. It’s expected to air sometime this winter.

Before he was taking it all off for the Magic Mike flicks, Manganiello was best known for playing Alcide Herveaux on HBO’s True Blood.

The third season premiere of Mom is set for Nov. 5 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
