Guys, we know that we joke a lot about how awesome the male stripper movie Magic Mike is going to be. We just want you to know that we believe that Magic Mike should win an Oscar the way we believe Showgirls should win an Oscar: from the bottom of our cheese-loving, shirt-collar-minus-the-shirt-wearing souls. While it might be sixteen years too late to get Elizabeth Berkley that Best Actress Academy Award she so justly deserves, we’d now like to know how to get both Channing Tatum and Channing Tatum’s shiny tuxedo vest on the ballot. Think of the suspense while they’re both waiting for the envelope to be opened! And one of them is a vest!
Warner Bros released a few more excellent stills from the upcoming masterpiece, costarring Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello and Wendi McLendon-Covey. First Wendi gets to be in Bridesmaids, now she gets to stuff dollars into Matt Bomer’s suspenders? Is it too early for a Lifetime Achievement Oscar? The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on June 29, which reminds us…Best Supporting Actor for Matthew McConaughey’s chest? Man, this film going to be like The Help all over again award-wise, just with more body oil and tear-away pants!
