Whenever a movie about strippers is done, the first question people ask is how much will we see of the main star or stars. More importantly, will they go full frontal?
Well that question in regards to the beefcake line-up of Steven Soderbergh’s “Magic Mike” has now been answered thanks to E! Online.
Reportedly only one of the main cast members will whip it out, and that’s “True Blood” werewolf Joe Manganiello. According to their sources however, much like Mark Wahlberg in “Boogie Nights” or Eric Bana in “Chopper”, the dick we see is a prop. In terms of his scenes showcasing the rubber appendage:
“In one scene, he tries living up to his character’s name, Big Dick Richie, by “fluffing” himself with a plastic contraption that assists in making him, let’s say, bigger than usual.
You never actually see Mr. Manganiello full frontal, but the scene does include separate shots of Richie’s manhood squeezed into the plastic tube. Later, Manganiello ends a dance behind a white screen. Let’s just say the shadow makes him look like he has a third leg.”
The rest of the cast though flash their cheeks, with Matthew McConaughey’s club owner reportedly having “a solo dance that will we promise! blow you away.”
