Nick The Gardener Takes You Behind The Scenes of 'Magic Mike XXL': VIDEO


Ellen's hunky gardener, Nick, a perennial favorite on the funny lady's daytime talk show, took Ellen and her audience behind the scenes of the upcoming, hotly anticipated stripper sequel, Magic Mike XXL in which he'll be appearing. You'll recall that Ellen successfully lobbied to get Nick cast in the movie (it helps being friends with Channing Tatum). 

All the talk of the beautiful behinds behind the scenes filming made Ellen spill something on her shirt. Luckily, Nick was there to help her out. Such a helpful young man.

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.

Check Out Joe Manganiello's Speech Accepting the HRC Ally for Equality Award: VIDEO


True Blood hunk and longtime LGBT ally Joe Manganiello attended the Human Rights Campaign Seattle Dinner last weekend to accept the Ally for Equality Award.

Said Manganiello during his acceptance speech:

You know I never set out to be an advocate, I'm simply a person who believes in equality for everyone. And I'm a person who believes in standing up for his friends. And if I'm being completely honest, there's a small part of me that felt weird about accepting an award just because I think that everyone should be treated the same - that each individual be allowed the basic human right to love whomever their heart wants to love without fear or hatred or prejudice. 

Check out the full speech, which includes a highlight reel of some of Manganiello's greatest shirtless moments in cinema AFTER THE JUMP...
