Matthew McConaughey Set to Play Ex-Stripper in Channing Tatum Pic Magic Mike

When Channing Tatum takes Alex Pettyfer under his wing to teach him the ins and outs of male stripper life in Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike, the young bucks will have another ex-stripper on hand with extensive shirtless experience: Matthew McConaughey. Best casting move in a while, Hollywood -- doubly so for you, Matty McC. Shall we study the history books to guess whether or not McConaughey will strip down himself as Dallas, "a former exotic dancer who now owns and operates Xquisite, the club where 'Magic Mike' works?"

    Is this a joke?

  • ZebedeeDooDah says:

    Dang, I was really hoping that Alex Pettyfer's career was going to die a quiet death (something I very rarely think about anyone), and this film sounds pretty good. Sigh, conflict.

  • j'accuse! says:

    It's rather petty fer you to say that, isn't it?

    "That's what I love about these strip club patrons, man. I get older, they stay the same age."

  • GLAM says:

    This ends up either as AMERICAN GIGOLO or SHOWGIRLS. Wonderful cast! Can't wait to see the ridiculous underwear they have to wear.
