The original 'Magic Mike' cast were sex on sticks, but we have some casting choices for the sequel.
Magic Mike is getting a sequel, and details are finally starting to be revealed!
The casting news of Magic Mike XXL is slowly trickling, and new additions include Jade Pinkett-Smith, Amber Heard and Andie MacDowell. (As for the details of their actual roles, all we know so far is that Pinkett-Smith's character was originally written for a man — and that is not stripping in the flick!)
The movie, which hits theaters on July 15, 2015, is going to be about the sexy male strippers we know and love getting to take their show on the road. "I want to do the story of when I'm in a dark U-Haul with a bunch of these guys and we're doing drugs driving up to the stripper convention," the sexy Channing Tatum told GQ.
As for the stripper convention in itself, Tatum says those nights were the craziest. "The women would come from miles and miles around," Tatum gushes. "Then you lock the doors and you say all bets are off. It gets zany and crazy, and it's a wild ride. It's an incubator for insanity. It doesn't matter almost what you do onstage. I don't want to put anything in black and white on a page, but if you've been to one, you know how crazy it gets, and now pour kerosene on that. You've seen Magic Mike — now multiply that. Mob mentality. It's just exponentially crazier. I thought it was absolutely insane."
With that said, we have some ideas of who we would love to get sexy in Magic Mike XXL.
Dwayne Johnson made a living out of kicking ass and taking names as The Rock back when he was in the WWE. He's also hilarious, charming and a great sport, so seeing him shake what his mama gave him would be a real treat, if you smell what we're cookin'.
Michael B. Jordan
Michael B. Jordan is going to be the Human Torch in the new Fantastic Four franchise. We have a feeling it may flop, so let him be hot elsewhere.
Leonardo DiCaprio pretty much picks hot Victoria's Secret models from the catalog to date, then discards them once they get to about a quarter of a century old. It'd be nice to see the occasionally doughy actor get objectified, too. And you never know — he may finally get his Oscar this way.
If you saw Jake Gyllenhaal dancing in Jarhead while wearing a thong, a Santa hat and little else, you'll know exactly why he's on this list. And if you haven't seen Jake Gyllenhaal dancing in Jarhead while wearing a thong, a Santa Hat and little else, I don't even know why you're reading this instead of canceling your plans in favor of NetFlix immediately.
Hugh Jackman is ripped. He's also wickedly charming and a great dancer. Why is he not a shoe-in?
Gerard Butler and his abs pretty much made 300 a chick-flick in disguise. Plus, the thought of him yelling, "THIS! IS! STRIP CLUB!" makes me really happy.
Listen, Lenny Kravitz is 50 years old and he looks like this. He's so sexy that it's actually almost disgusting and oh my God I think I got pregnant from Googling him.
Jason Momoa looks like this, is goofy as Hell in real life and is Lisa Bonet's second husband (after the aforementioned Lenny Kravitz). I don't know what Lisa Bonet does to land these dudes (charm? Kegel's?), but I want to take lessons.
Chris Hemsworth being Adonis wasn't enough. The universe had to go and make him sweet, funny and give him an Australian accent, too.
Or his little brother Liam Hemsworth. Because even the lesser Hemsworth is still greater than the average anyone else.
Brad Pitt used to be a stripper before he was famous, so he could just employ method acting for Magic Mike XXL.
Derek Jeter is retiring and the Yankees didn't make the post-season this year. He'll have the time to dedicate to the role is what I'm trying to say here.
Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris makes everything better. Everything. And he can dance. Why is this even a question?
Sir Patrick Stewart
Sir Patrick Stewart once patted me on the head, so I'm convinced we're best friends (and I may or may not have run sobbing into the bathroom once he left). Some people get better with age. This outspoken feminist and occasional-wearer-of-lobster-costumes is one of them.
Don't act like you wouldn't pay to see Alfonso Ribeiro do the Carlton dance in a thong. Because you know you would.
