McConaughey Is Ex-Stripper In “Magic Mike”

Matthew McConaughey has joined the cast of Steven Soderbergh’s indie drama “Magic Mike” says Variety.

The story is loosely based on Channing Tatum’s days as a teenage male stripper mentored by the titular Mike. Tatum plays Mike while Alex Pettyfer will play the young stripper.

McConaughey will play Dallas, a former stripper who now owns the Xquisite club where Mike works. Reid Carolin penned the script while no production date has yet been set.
