‘Magic Mike XXL’ Adds Another New Cast Member

Published

on

The cast for Magic Mike XXL keeps on getting bigger, stronger and better … And adding to the crew of sexy men stripping down to all but a small g-string, professional dancer, Stephen “tWitch” Boss.

tWitch announced during The Ellen Show on Wednesday that Channing Tatum asked him to be part of the flick. But according to the dancer, who frequents the show regularly as a guest deejay, explained that there is one stipulation that he is a little uneasy about. “I don’t mind wearing less,” he said. “But there’s this other element. I have to get waxed. From neck to toe waxed, I ‘ve never had to do that before. I’m really nervous about that. I didn’t know that’s what I was signing up for.”

And of course, leave it to Ellen to make sure the entire thing gets captured on camera.

Last month, it was announced that Jada Pinkett Smith, Michael Strahan, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, Amber Heard and Andie MacDowell were also added to the cast.

Warner Brothers recently released a statement sharing the new description of the film, which read:

Magic Mike XXL finds the remaining Kings of Tampa ready to throw in the towel. 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.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
