Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Supporting Cast Of “Magic Mike”

Magic Mike,” aka the movie where Channing Tatum will play a stripper (a job he has actually held in real life), is shaping up to have the hottest supporting cast ever. And we can only imagine that most of them will be taking off their clothes. Thursday, it was announced that Matthew McConaughey had signed on to play Dallas, a former dancer who runs the Xquisite Club where Magic Mike works. It also was revealed that Matt Bomer of “White Collar” had committed to playing a stripper in Magic Mike’s coterie. And yesterday we learned that Joe Manganiello is in final talks to play the role of Big Dick Richie in the movie. Which, great name?

After the jump, who of these three we would shun, shag, and marry.Shun: Matthew McConaughey
I think that my first experience with Matthew McConaughey, as a sleazy 20-something who hits on high school girls in “Dazed and Confused,” tainted all the rest. No matter whether he’s playing a lawyer in “A Time To Kill” or a nice dude in “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” all I can see is the inner creepster. Add in his obnoxious slogan “Just Keep Living,” his propensity for walking around shirtless, his preferred quarters of a jetstream trailer, and his aversion to deodorant, and it is very, very easy to shun Matthew. Toodaloo.

Shag: Matt Bomer
Not too much is known about Matthew Bomer, the star of USA’s “White Collar.” But all I need to know about him is in his eyes—those dream turquoise-blue eyes that practically leap off posters. Matthew got his start on “All My Children,” then graduated to playing Eliza Dushku’s love interest on “Tru Calling” before USA nabbed him. Of his personal life, he’s been cagey about reveal info, but says that he is “fulfilled” and later dished to Hoda Ktob that he has three children. But I repeat: he is hot and his last name is very close to “Boner.” So … shag.

Marry: Joe Manganiello
Joe and I go way back. I remember spotting him in a bit role as a guy at a law school party in “How I Met Your Mother” and I thought he was gorg. Fast forward a few years until he played Alcide, the werewolf with the heart of platinum on “True Blood,” who keeps getting dragged through the mud by Debbie and Sookie. What else do we need to know about Joe to know that he is husband material? He turned to acting when a football injury took him out of the game. He trained as a boxer. And he was a roadie for Goldfinger. Yes Joe, I will marry you.
