The hunky actor is back on the market. Somehow, we don't think his lady fans will mind.

His werewolf character might be starting a new romance with Sookie next season, but in real life, True Blood actor Joe Manganiello is a single man after reportedly ending his relationship with fiancee Audra Marie.

According to US Weekly, the 34-year-old stud, who plays Alcide on the HBO hit, and Audra, an actress-model, have called off their engagement for unknown reasons. However, sources tell the magazine that the love between the two is "totally over."

"It was a long time coming. They'll both be better off for it," says an insider. Which 'True Blood' Couple Are You?

The couple reportedly met at a Super Bowl party in 2009 and became engaged durign a vacation to Italy in October 2010. At the time, Joe even gushed about his engagement to E! News, saying: "I always dreamed of finding someone who is beautiful and sweet, equal parts. And I did. From there she's just unbelievably understanding and compassionate and patient from all the craziness that comes from this job and lifestyle."

However, something reportedly happened between the time of the engagement and early 2011, and a source tells US that the actor supposedly "refused" to set a wedding date or discuss his engagement while on the set of True BloodAlexander Skarsgard Only Lasts 8 Seconds In Bed

"He [went] completely quiet about discussing wedding details," says the source. "He [was] clearly having reservations."

Hmmm... could Joe's sudden fame and seemingly larger role on the next season of True Blood have played a factor in his split with Audra? Regardless, he certainly doesn't seem like he will be at loss for female company. The heartthrob was recently spotted chatting up actress Rose McGowan in New York. Wasting no time!
