To discuss the role, Pettyfer phoned the Hollywood Blog earlier this week, telling us about his up-close-and-personal scene with Matthew McConaughey, his informative experiences in real-life strip clubs, and the possibility of appearing in a Broadway adaptation of Magic Mike. Julie Miller : I appreciated how seriously Steven Soderbergh and the cast take the world of male stripping in Magic Mike. For me, when I was onstage as this character, I took it veryseriously [laughs]. It was very hilarious. A surreal moment looking back on it. This is a weird parody.
The film is loosely based on the experiences of Tatum, who was an year-old stripper in Tampa, Florida. Magic Mike was filmed in several locations around west central Florida. The film premiered as the closing film for the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 24, , and was widely released by Warner Bros. Mike Channing Tatum has big plans for a business of his own but pays his bills through a series of odd jobs, most notably performing as the star stripper at Xquisite Strip Club in Tampa, a club owned by Dallas Matthew McConaughey , who has dreams of creating an "empire" of strip clubs. Mike soon meets year-old Adam Alex Pettyfer , a recent college dropout looking for a construction job.
Usually, the headline "Matthew McConaughey Shirtless" is about unsurprising as it gets. McConaughey pulls a Chippendales-inspired Uncle Sam in this first photo from Steven Soderberg's "Magic Mike," a film about male strippers in which he stars as the strip club owner, Dallas. Alex Pettyfer and Channing Tatum, who can be seen dressed in military casuals in the forefront, are the two leads in this film, which is based on Tatum's year on the pole before he began his acting career. Joe Manganiello, who can also be seen in the picture, has a supporting role, as does Matt Bomer.
