Every once in a while a movie comes along that promises to be a neverending buffet of beefcake, with casting decisions that make you weep and raise your eyes to the ceiling to thank whatever benevolent deity decided to round up these fit men and rip off all their clothes. Today, that project is Steven Soderbergh‘s tale of the enduring friendship between two male strippers, Magic Mike.
But maybe you’ve been too distracted by the sheer spectrum of male objectification that this movie promises, and you don’t even know who’s going to be in it! There’s at least one bad boy, but is he from the current crop or ten years ago? (Hint: Both.) Have you heard about the True Blood star who’s in final talks to join? And which one is Magic Mike?! We’ve got all the answers for you.
Plus, we’ve tracked down shirtless photos of them… so you can get an idea of what Soderbergh’s vision for the movie is, of course.
