We were more than a little excited to report that Channing Tatum will be dropping trou (or at least, we assume he will be) for his role in “Magic Mike.” The film will be based on his own personal experiences as a male stripper before making it big in Hollywood.
]]><![CDATA[Well, the casting news just got better.
“I Am Number Four” and “Beastly” actor Alex Pettyfer has signed on to
play the young mentee to Tatum’s mentor in the film — aka the
character based on Tatum’s real life. We may not agree with some of
Pettyfer’s personal beliefs (Hello, that crotch tattoo is repulsive) but
he sure is pretty to look at.
The film will be directed by
almost retired director Steven Soderbergh,
who has said: “It’s sexy, funny and shocking. We’re using ‘Saturday
Night Fever’ as our model, so hopefully we’re on the right track.”
We. Can’t. Wait.
