Yup, Channing Tatum strips by night and builds furniture by day. (Apparently furniture designer, like architect, is film and tv code for sensitive guy; remember Aidan from Sex & The City?) The movie, which also stars Matthew McConnaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and Olivia Munn, is based on Tatum's pre-Hollywood life.
Tatum plays Magic Mike, a stripper, works at Xquisite, a club owned by a former exotic dancer (Matthew McConnaughey), in order to make ends meet while waiting for his custom furniture business to take off. Mike takes newbie recruit The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing, teaching him all he knows about partying, picking up women, and stripping. Not surprisingly, his life choices come into question when he falls for The Kid's sister. The film, which is directed by Steven Soderbergh, opens June 29th.
