Want to see a somebody, anybody, from Magic Mike in the flesh? Of course you do. Joe Manganiello, one of the stars of the movie, will be attending The Palm Beach International Film Festival, which celebrates its 20th anniversary with a gala Saturday night. The 37-year-old six-foot-five beefcake, currently dating Sofia Vergara, will be presented with a well deserved career achievement award for his um, standout, work in MM (currently filming the XXL sequel) as well as on HBO’s True Blood. Manganiello plays fan-favorite Alcide Herveaux, the loyal, no-nonsense werewolf.

Tickets to the gala: $150 (, 561-362-0003). A selfie with Manganiello: Priceless.

Brace yourself for a shark attack! The Syfy Network has announced it will film 2015 release Sharknado 3, yet another in the series of so-bad-it’s-gold disaster flicks starring a swirling cloud of man-eaters, in our very own Sunshine State. The third Sharknado film will begin with an attack on Washington, D.C., then chomp its way down the eastern seaboard to Orlando. Somebody really should tell Syfy that Orlando isn’t on the coast. Oh, never mind.
