Joe Manganiello is bringing the heat to Password!

In PEOPLE's exclusive sneak peek at the season 2 premiere of the NBC game show, the True Blood alum, 47, faces off against Jimmy Fallon. With Fallon’s team trailing, the The Tonight Show host must decide if he wants to play or pass when the password is revealed to be "Mike."

The talk show host, 49, immediately recognizes that “everyone really wants” him to play first as Manganiello famously starred in the hit movie Magic Mike alongside Channing Tatum.

Fallon makes an attempt to mimic the moves from the iconic film and host Keke Palmer comments, “Watch the gyrating.” His partner then asks him to repeat the dance moves and Palmer says, “You know what it’s getting hot in here.”

Ultimately, his partner guesses “stripper” before it’s the Deal or No Deal Island host’s turn to show off his moves. Palmer, 30, reminds them the category is: “Passwords that are magic.”

“Can I stand up?” Manganiello asks but he is told to stay seated. He then does a body roll in his chair and says the word “Magic.” His partner then guesses “Chippendale.”

After Fallon is penalized for using the word “Microphone” during his round — which included the word “Mike” — it is back to Manganiello, who gives the hint “Channing,” which allows them to take the round.

Manganiello then stands up and gives a taste of his character’s moves from the film. Palmer then says, “Joe, if I'm not mistaken weren’t you in Magic Mike,” and he responds, “I played Big Dick Richie.”

Palmer then encourages him to “stand up and dance.” The pair show off their best stripper moves, and Fallon reminds them, “Hey! This is a family show” as Palmer adds, “I love my job.”
