Michael Strahan Joins Magic Mike Sequel

Michael Strahan Joins Magic Mike Sequel

Morning show host will play a stripper in the film.

Published September 30, 2014

Fans of Michael Strahan, get ready for an eyeful. The morning show host and former NFL player has just signed on to strip down for the sequel to Magic Mike, TMZ reports. 

Strahan will play a stripper in Magic Mike XXL, the sequel to the raunchy 2012 hit. The original was directed by Steven Soderbergh and starred Channing Tatum. While Soderbergh will not be directing the sequel, Tatum will return and Jada Pinkett Smith has been added to the cast as the owner of the strip club where, presumably, the two hunks will work.

While Strahan will provide plenty of eye candy for the film, those hoping to get a look at what he's working with down low may be disappointed. The NFL Hall of Famer will "definitely be topless" in the movie, according to sources, but "anything below the waist is still being discussed."

Magic Mike XXL is due in theaters sometime next year.
