Where should I begin with the just released batch of 50 new pictures from Steven Soderbergh‘s male stripper flick Magic Mike starring Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Adam Rodriguez, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Olivia Munn and Riley Keough?
I have not watched the trailer and I don’t know what to expect and I want to keep it that way, but I can’t help but be fascinated by what my preview audience is going to look like as I’m sure ladies will be clawing each others eyes out to get in to see this thing, and I’m pretty sure there will be a few men just as excited.
That said, you can click here to browse my complete gallery of 56 total pictures from the film, but before you go, let’s meet the men of Club Xquisite, the strip joint where everything goes down, and see if they have what you are looking for.
Here we have Joe Manganiello (“True Blood”) and as I mentioned earlier this week, he is apparently the one that shows off the most in this film as E! gave us the following from one of their sources:
“In one scene, he tries living up to his character’s name, Big Dick Richie [Manganiello], by “fluffing” himself with a plastic contraption that assists in making him, let’s say, bigger than usual. You never actually see Mr. Manganiello full frontal, but the scene does include separate shots of Richie’s manhood squeezed into the plastic tube. Later, Manganiello ends a dance behind a white screen. Let’s just say the shadow makes him look like he has a third leg.”
Even the press notes reference his white screen dance saying, “Manganiello does a silhouette dance as a suited businessman and also nails the ever-popular fireman routine, as well as a golden statue that springs to life.”
Next we have Kevin Nash who plays the “wild man” by the name of Tarzan, who swoops across the stage on a rope. Nash is best known as a professional wrestler, so he’s used to stripping down to nearly nothing and dancing around with other men.
Here’s Matt Bomer (“White Collar”) who plays Ken, whose signature act is emerging from a toy box as every girl’s perfect Ken Doll come to life, on top of that he plays a white-coated Dr. Love.
