With ‘Magic Mike‘ opening next month Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and Matthew McConaughy are gamely showing their stuff for the summer crowds and here’s some more beefy images to check out.
For those that complained about the Rihanna track used in the ‘Magic Mike‘ trailer, here’s a song from Adam Levine and his Maroon 5 that might seem more suitable. EW did a great piece with the men that Stephen Soderbergh and Channing Tatum roped into his ode to male strippers, and they speak about everything from extreme manscaping to how their girlfriends and boyfriend (Matt Bomer’s at least) reacted to their taking nearly everything off for the camera. Naturally Matthew McConaughy spoke about his g-string getting weighed down from so much money and then off, but that’s nothing unusual for the naked bongo guy.

The entire cast seems to be really game for plugging the movie in the press, so don’t be surprised if this one turns out to be the fun summer sleeper hit that everyone winds up going too. Test audiences have been loving the film and a few of our readers have been in that testing phase so things are looking good for the latest Soderberg/Tatum collaboration. Tatum did say in a recent interview, “This movie isn’t about my life.” The film’s been publicized heavily as having been based on the actors two year stint as a male stripper to pay the bills. “[The plot] has nothing to do with me other than that there’s an 18, 19-year-old kid coming into this world. That’s it. [But] I think the world is pretty damn accurate. Everything you see in the movie is stuff that I saw.” Tatum also said that “With Joe Manganiello in a movie, I think even straight guys are going to be, ‘S**t, I need to see that,” he joked before adding, “That man is a specimen.” That’s an understatement as many of you readers will agree. Now here’s a bunch of images from the film that features your favorite beef.
