“Magic Mike,” the superstar cast-driven male stripper film, was loosely inspired by Channing Tatum’s own past, but it wasn’t that actor’s dance moves his co-stars learned for the film. Instead, they got the pop star choreography treatment.
“Channing’s on another level, dance-wise, but he didn’t necessarily teach us. We had some people for Britney Spears’ choreography team teach us our moves. Body rolls, some hip stuff,” Joe Manganiello, who stars as Big Dick Richie in the movie, told the sexiest guy fromTrue Blood Series on Access Hollywood on the red carpet at the 2011 Scream Awards over the weekend in Los Angeles.
With Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez and Alex Pettyfer also part of the cast, there was plenty of shirtless action, but there was no flexing or posturing behind the scenes.
