Joe Mangniello is a bit of a mystery character in the new AMC series, Moonhaven.
Moonhaven centers on Bella Sway (Emma McDonald, “The Picture of Dorian Gray”), a lunar cargo pilot and smuggler 100 years in the future who finds herself accused of a crime and marooned on Moonhaven, a utopian community set on a 500-square mile Garden of Eden built on the Moon to find solutions to the problems that will soon end civilization on Mother Earth. A skeptic in Paradise, Bella is sucked into a conspiracy to gain control of the artificial intelligence responsible for Moonhaven’s miracles and teams with a local detective to stop the forces that want to destroy Earth’s last hope before they are destroyed themselves.
The actor of Italian descent was an athlete during his high school years. He was the captain of the football, basketball and volleyball varsity teams. At the same time he was involved with the school’s television studio and the curiosity for acting came along. After being denied from Carnegie Mellon School of Drama during his senior year he tried again a year later and was accepted. After graduating in 2000 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts he relocated to Los Angeles.
Three days after signing on with a talent agent he won the part to play Flash “Flash” Thompson in Spider-Man. A part for which he did return as a cameo for Spider-Man 3. Now he is known for projects like HBO’s hit True Blood, Netflix’s Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday, Magic Mike XXL and Zack Snyde’s Justice League among several others. In Mangniello made his debut as a director with the documentary La Bare, about the La Bare Dallas male strip club.
