Channing Tatum harkens back to his glory days of male stripping to come up with the story. It's interesting to note that while most actors would shy away from their semi-naked past, Tatum embraces it and even makes a movie about his experience.

Tatum stars as Mike, a struggling entrepeneur by day, and the headliner of an all-male revue by night. The club is called Xquisite and his troop is known as the Kings of Tampa. Their owner is the Messiah of the male strippers, Dallas, played by Matthew McConaughey. (Exclusive interview with Alex Pettyfer and Cody Horn)
But there's always a young newbie in this kind of story and in "Magic Mike," he's appropriately known as The Kid aka Adam played by Alex Pettyfer ("I Am Number Four," "In Time"). He has two people taking care of him. His sister, Brooke (the memorable Cody Horn), and Mike, who takes him under his wing. (Exclusive interview with Matt Bomer and Adam Rodriguez)
