One for the Girls: The stars of Magic Mike show off their moves

Magic Mike hits theaters in 12 DAYS (can you tell we’re a bit excited in the DYRT office) and we can’t wait to see Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and Matthew McConaughey strip down for us on the big screen.

Fortunately for all of us Magic Mike maniacs, the guys have already given us some super-sexy glimpses of the near-naked gloriousness we can expect to see in theaters.

Premier: These boys look just as good in their closes as they do out of them


1. Daytime Delight: When Joe Manganiello stopped by The Wendy Williams Show, he brought more than six-pack abs and charming conversation. He brought his stripper moves! Joe treated a lucky audience member to an up close and personal dance. Wendy hurled cash at Mr. Manganiello, who then rewarded her with her own lap dance. If you’re like us and want to get right to the action, fast forward to the 3:07 mark in the clip above.

2. Today Show Treat: Channing Tatum certainly brightened up Wednesday morning. Magic Mike himself shocked the Today Show audience (and hosts, apparently!) when he led a flash mob of scantily clad dancers in a choreographed performance to “It’s Raining Men.” Rockefeller Plaza will never be the same.

3. Elizabeth’s Elation: Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks won the MTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Transformation, but the thing that had everyone talking was the surprise appearance by Big Dick Richie himself (aka Joe Manganiello). Dressed as a sexy fireman (shirtless, thank goodness!) Surrounded by Joe, Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum, She thanked MTV “for this moment right here,” then playfully grabbed at the man candy surrounding her. “This is just the best moment of my life,” she exclaimed.

4. Pre-Fame Fabulousness: Channing Tatum didn’t need Tinseltown’s help to drive throngs of women wild. Us Weekly unearthed a video from 1999 of the model-turned-actor dancing and stripping in a real-life “Chippendales-style revue” called Male Encounter! The former owner of the now-defunct Florida club told the mag Channing “was shy at first, but he really knew how to work the stage.”
