So, I was sitting, watching TV last night, minding my own business when I saw a clip for Magic Mike.
I turned to my husband and said “definitely going to see this… with my girls!”
The film stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, and Matthew McConaughey, and from their appearances in Beastly to True Blood I feel like most of these gentlemen are no stranger to taking their shirts off. In fact, one might argue that McConaughey is almost exclusively famous for not wearing a shirt. [via]
Tatum, 31, stars as the titular “magical” male stripper, a role that’s loosely based on Tatum’s real-life experience of exotic dancing in Tampa.
By night, Mike plays to the fantasies of his patrons, being the “husband they never had, the dreamboat guy that never came along.” But by day, he’s more interested in crafting and selling furniture – and perhaps falling in love with Paige, as played by Cody Horn. A stripper/entrepreneur, if you will.
So why does he strip? First of all, he’s making good money – although you don’t want to know what he has to do for a $20 – and there’s also “women…and a good time.”
Tatum has called his time spent as an exotic dancer “a wild and pivotal time” in his life, and it looks like some of that will be carried over to the film as well.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh, “Magic Mike” also stars Matt Bomer, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey and “True Blood’s” Joe Manganiello as “Big Dick Richie.” [via]
