Olivia Munn joins Alex Pettyfer and Channing Tatum in Magic Mike
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
It’s about time we get a female presence in MAGIC MIKE, the upcoming film about the world of male strippers from director Steven Soderbergh. The film focuses on an experienced stripper that teaches the ropes to a young stripper as they hustle their way on and off the stage. Already filled with enough abs to make you never want to go to the beach, ‘The Daily Show’ correspondent and rising actress Olivia Munn is set to star in the film as the girlfriend of Channing Tatum. Along with Tatum, the film stars Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Gabriel Iglesias and Cody Horn.
I’m still not sure where they’re going to go with this film, but with this kind of cast, I’m sure females around the globe will show up in droves, especially with the insinuation of male nudity thrown in. Of course, female audiences aren’t as easy to please as male audiences, so I hope Soderbergh has something more than just male nudity to fill the seats.
