Michael Strahan, Jada Pinkett Smith Added To Cast Of ‘Magic Mike XXL’
Thank you Warner Brothers, Magic Mike XXL is already shaping up to be five times better than the first.
The studio confirmed has officially confirmed the entire cast for the sequel and we are excited to announce that Jada Pinkett Smith and Michael Strahan will make an appearance. The newcomers will also include Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, Amber Heard and Andie MacDowell.
Strahan also announced the big news on LIVE With Kelly and Michael on Monday. “I’m getting ready to do something that’s making me nervous,” he said today. “I’m about to do something that started as a joke on the show.”
Back in 2012, Strahan busted out with a few stripper moves while Channing Tatum was on the show promoting the first film. It looks like Strahan’s moves won studio execs over because he will be flaunting his goods for the world to see.
“It’s kind of a thong thing,” he said about his outfit for the sequel.
“Magic Mike XXL” finds the remaining Kings of Tampa ready to throw in the towel,” WB wrote in a statement. “But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them. On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.”
Magic Mike XXL hits theaters on July 1, 2015.
