Joe Manganiello has officially quit History's upcoming military action drama series, Six, due to health issues. Is he OK? RadarOnline.com has all the details.

According to a source close to the True Blood star and hunky husband of Sofia Vergara, 43, "Joe isn't injured and he is going to be okay. He is just burnt out right now!"

Aside from the intense physical demands that Six – the eight part-series that is now on hold due to Manganiello's departure – required, the insider told Radar that Manganiello has spread himself thin lately with a huge workload that includes latest project, Pee-Wee's Big Holiday.
