Magic Mike is an upcoming movie directed by Steven Soderbergh who is known for his previous movie “Haywire”. He is now back to explore the world of male strippers and features Channing Tatum in this film because Soderbergh was greatly inspired by Tatum’s history. In Magic Mike, Channing Tatum plays the character of Mike who takes a young dancer branded as The Kid to help him know the intricacy when it comes to picking up women, partying and of course getting money. Magic Mike will be shown in theaters on June 29th 2012. Let’s take a look at a recent news on this upcoming film “Magic Mike”.
“Channing Tatum And Joe Manganiello In Magic Mike
This week, I was invited by Warner Bros. to the Thompson Hotel in downtown Toronto to talk withChanning Tatum and Joe Manganiello on their upcoming film Magic Mike. Through an all too brief twenty minute interview, the two stars discussed stripping on film, what their “significant others” thought of the movie, how the film almost become a Broadway play, and much, much more.
In case you’re not one of the millions of women that are waiting with baited breath to see Hollywood’s most desirable men bare their assets in Magic Mike, I’ll give you a quick summary of what the film’s all about:
Partially based on Tatum’s life, the film follows Magic Mike (Tatum), a male stripper who takes a younger performer called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing. Along with Big Dick Richie (Joe Manganiello), Ken (Matt Bomer), Tarzan (Kevin Nash) and Tito (Adam Rodriguez), they work at a club called Xquisite, owned by a former stripper named Dallas (Matthew McConaughey).
As the interview began, the first issue that came up was regarding stripping in the film, which neither of the actors were used to. Granted, Joe has shed his clothes before on camera – he’s often seen naked on HBO’s hit show True Blood – but he’s never done anything quite like this before.
“It’s completely unto itself, it really is,” says Tatum. “I remember, Matt Bomer went out first. He was actually the first one who performed in the movie and we were all like ‘good luck motherfu-**er.’ [laughs]
He was like ‘what do I do?’ and I was like ‘just go for it, just rub your junk in her face’ and he just ran out. Then when he came back he was like ‘I don’t know what just happened’ and I was like ‘me neither.’ [laughs]
Bomer wasn’t the only one who had a frightening first experience though, Tatum recalls his first time going out on stage as well.
”I remember before I went out on stage I thought to myself ‘this is a terrible idea, why did I want to make this movie?’
Though there’s no full frontal nudity in the film, Channing does have to reveal quite a bit of skin. He definitely puts himself out there as well with some of the more revealing costumes. In fact, it makes you wonder, what did his wife think of the role?
“She thinks it’s hilarious. She kind of revels in the fact that she married a stripper. She got to see a bunch of different versions of the film and she had fun each time. “
