Joe Manganiello in character as Big Dick Richie promoting his upcoming movie Magic Mikeand making his co-stars Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum compeltly irrelevant.
Can we all sign a petition somewhere that no Hollywood director is allowed to hire Joe Manganiello unless he plays the role of Big Dick Richie? I think every movie and every one should have a Big Dick Richie in them.
Once upon a time before he made it in Hollywood, Channing Tatum used to work as a stripper. Steven Soderbergh decided to direct a movie based on Channing’s experiences as a stripper when he was 19. This movie is called Magic Mike and it’s coming to a theatre near you on June 29th.
What’s the plot you may ask? Who cares?! The movie stars Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer,Matthew McConaughey and Cody Horn shirtless. That’s a great plot if you ask me.
To promote the upcoming flick, Channing and the boys appeared on Entertainment Weekly’s cover.
Apparently, Chris Rock convinced the True Blood werewolf to strip for Magic Mike.
Manganiello told Entertainment Weekly, “I was like, ‘Should I do it?’ And he’s like, ‘Ooh… male strippers, I don’t know.’ I was like, ‘If I do this movie, guys are gonna hate my guts.’ And Chris Rock is like, Motherf**ker, guys are gonna hate your guts anyway. Brad Pitt spent 15 years with his shirt off, he’s doing just fine. Who’s directing?’
“I go, ‘Soderbergh’, and he goes, ‘Who’s in it?’ and I go, ‘Channing, McConaughey…’ He goes, ‘Do the f**king movie!’”
Anyways, watch the trailer once, twice, or all day long. I won’t judge you.
According to JustJared, Joe and his fiancee Audra Maria have split. Jared, if this information is false I’m going to just kill you.
Otherwise these are the best news I’ve heard all week!
Joe and his model-actress girlfriend announced their engagement in October 2010 when he popped the question during their vacation in Italy. In an interview with E! News, Joe said:
“I always dreamed of finding someone who is beautiful and sweet, equal parts. And I did. From there she’s just unbelievably understanding and compassionate and patient from all the craziness that comes from this job and lifestyle.”
Apparently by spring 2011, Joe “refused to set a wedding date or discuss any wedding details,” a source says.
Since the split, Joe was spotted at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week looking sexy and in happy spirits – or maybe he’s just a really good actor.
Here is Joe giving an interview at the Perry Ellis show:
