For 'Magic Mike XXL,' Channing Tatum and Co. Got Joe Manganiello Naked 'As Much As Possible'


ICYMI, there is even more good news, regarding Magic Mike XXL. In September, we learned Cody Horn's widely-criticized performance will not be reprised, and this is even better.

Speaking with Time, Tatum said the film is male-centric, but it will appeal to straight female fans — a  "guy's story, but made for women." The interviewer responded, saying the film would also interest "gay men, surely." Tatum wholeheartedly agreed:

You’ll see — we serviced [gay fans' interest] as well, in a way. [pauses] I’m choosing my words very stupidly. [laughs] One of our first stops is at a drag club on our odyssey. We call it a stripper odyssey because it’s a traveling band of strippers. This movie is a lot more fun. In the first movie, we were obligated to show the underbelly — the pitfalls and dangers of being in that world. In this one, we kicked off a lot of the darkness. We’re going to have a lot of fun on the road together. Hopefully you’re going to care about these guys, and then get to see a lot of ridiculous nakedness and stupidity.

Tatum ended the interview, saying: "We got Joe Manganiello naked as much as possible. Everyone in the world: you’re welcome."

Unfortunately, eager fans will have to wait quite a while — the film isn't out until July 1, 2015. Stephen Soderbergh will serve as cinematographer rather than reprise his role as director; Gregory Jacobs will direct.

Neil Patrick Harris and Chris Pratt Fight It Out For 2014 'Sexiest Man Alive' - VIDEO

Sexiest man

Chris Pratt and Neil Patrick Harris are reported to be front-runners for People magazine’s annual “Sexiest Man Alive” issue, according to Daily News.

A People insider said Guardians of the Galaxy “made Chris Pratt a star and overhauled his image from that cute guy on ‘Parks and Recreation’ to a buff heartthrob. If he can make blockbuster money, he can sell a ton of magazines is the thinking. What ‘The Hangover’ did for Bradley Cooper this film did for Chris. It’s his year.”

The magazine staffer added that as the potential first openly gay “Sexiest Man Alive,” Neil Patrick Harris “would certainly make news and generate buzz for the magazine. Plus, Neil is going to be hosting the Oscars. He’s in ‘Gone Girl,’ he was just on Broadway. He’s also happily married with kids. He is having an amazing year.”

Last year, People named Adam Levine as “Sexiest Man Alive.” The honor went to Channing Tatum in 2012 and to Bradley Cooper in 2011.

Head over to Vocatic for their list of five men you forgot were bestowed with the honor (hint - it includes Nick Nolte) and watch a Daily News report (even though they think only women "anxiously await the results"), AFTER THE JUMP... (warning: autoplay)

Channing Tatum And Steve Carell Go For Gold In New Trailer For 'Foxcatcher' - VIDEO


Channing Tatum and Steve Carell star in the highly anticipated upcoming film Foxcatcher about a wrestler (Tatum) who wants to be the best wrestler in the world and a mysterious older benefactor (Carell) who offers him his patronage. What begins as a mutually symbiotic relationship quickly devolves into something darker and more twisted.

The film, which also stars Mark Ruffalo, was physically taxing on Tatum. From Yahoo Movies:

Tatum admitted to keeping secret the various ailments he suffered throughout the seven months of training and the grueling shoot that followed. “Look, when you’re in that kind of a movie, it doesn’t matter if you’re hurt or not,” the actor told Yahoo. “You keep moving forward. I don’t think my knees will ever be the same after that, and I still have cauliflower ear. But if I came out of the movie without it, I’d feel like I didn’t do something right.”
