The Magic Mike party ain't over just yet. Channing Tatum confirmed that a Magic Mike sequel is in the works. Happy Hump Day, womankind.
There's alREADY a Broadway musical version in development, but fortunately, we don't all need to jet to NYC to see another installment (though we all probably will, let's be real).
When asked about a sequel, Channing said to Glamour UK, "We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger." Well, if they want to make the script BIGGER, might that mean some additions to the cast? If so, Hollywire has a few suggestions for actors to add to the stripper team. Just a few really talented, intelligent, sensitive men with a deep understanding of the human condition.... oh screw it, just dudes with the best pecs.
Take a look at our humble casting picks, and tells us who YOU would want to see poledancing in Magic Mike 2.
Stripper Suggestion #1: Ryan Gosling
I mean, duh, guys. Though I do fear that the release of a trailer where the Gos is poledancing would make the Internet explode. (though sacrificing the Internet for viewing said trailer would be worth it.)
Stripper Suggestion #2: Zac Efron
Zac proved he could dance in High School Musical. And he proved he could look like a male stripper...by taking off his shirt.
Stripper Suggestion #3: Chris Hemsworth
They wouldn't even need to develop a new character for Chris -- he could just play Thor falling on hard times.
Stripper Suggestion #4: Harry Shum Jr.
Harry definitely deserves a part since he's shown us on Glee that he's one hell of a dancer. Other qualifications? See above.
Stripper #5: Taylor Lautner
Come on, guys, Taylor was born to play a stripper. This kid had washboard abs before he had a high school diploma.
Stripper #6: David Beckham
For the sequel's poster, all they would need to do is Photoshop out the rope in these pics, replace it with a pole and BOOM: #1 at the box office.
Whew. Is it hot in here, readers? Or is it just Hollywire?
Who would YOU cast in the Magic Mike sequel??
