As if a film centered around Hollywood’s buzzing stars stripping on stage needed any more of a mainstream appeal, the sequel to Channing Tatum’s critically and commercially successful Magic Mike has managed to pull in some big names. Over the past several weeks, stars like Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett Smith, Elizabeth Banks, and Michael Strahan have been tapped to join the cast of Magic Mike XXL. Even Andie MacDowell of Groundhog Day fame is set to join the ever-expanding cast.
Despite all the eclectic names joining the stripper-comedy, the latest addition might be the most surprising. As the official cast and plot reveals took place today, Warner Bros. confirmed all the big names attached to the sequel as well as announcing that Donald Glover will also be involved.
