After photos surfaced of Joe Manganiello with his right arm in a cast on Nov. 28, the star’s rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the actor suffered an injury during the production of Magic Mike XXL, the sequel to the 2012 male stripper film, Magic Mike, in Savannah, Georgia. “It will be back to normal in a few months,” the rep said. As for what might have caused the injury, Manganiello’s rep remained mum, but it’s a good bet it involved something torrid. His costar Channing Tatum recently told Time magazine that the script called for the 6’5″ actor to get “naked as much as possible. Everyone in the world: you’re welcome.” Manganiello, 37, recently told PEOPLE his final dance number was performed in front of 900 screaming extras. “It was a bigger rush,” he said. “The sound of 900 screaming women is literally deafening. My ears were ringing for days after I did my final routine.” The actor was later spotted wearing a large brace on his arm alongside girlfriend Sofia Vergara on Thursday at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles for GQ‘s Men of the Year party. They also dined with actor Scott Eastwood at the pre-dinner thrown by Gucci inside the Penthouse. Magic Mike XXL hits theaters next summer.
