Matthew McConaughey joins Steven Soderbergh’s stripper flick

Notorious shirt-hater Matthew McConaughey has joined the cast of Steven Soderbergh‘s stripper flick Magic Mike.

According to Variety, McConaughey will play “Dallas, a former exotic dancer who now owns and operates Xquisite, the club where ‘Magic Mike’ works”.

As has been previously reported, Channing Tatum – who brought the idea to Soderbergh based on his own experiences as a male stripper – will play the title character. Alex Pettyfer will star as an up-and-coming dancer who is mentored by Mike.

Discuss: Are you expecting some trashy fun here, or does Soderbergh’s involvement raise your expectations even higher?
