Joe Manganiello close to Magic Mike co-stars

2014-07-08 21:00

Los Angeles  - Joe Manganiello always hangs out with his Magic Mike co-stars.

The 37-year-old actor is excited about working on stripper sequel Magic Mike XXL - which will also star Channing Tatum and is expected to have the likes of Alex Pettyfer and Matthew McConaughey returning - as it will focus more on the bond between the guys, and he thinks it will be much more true to life as they are all so close.

He said: "It's going to be about the guys. We didn't really get to focus on any of them. I don't think there are specific instances of, 'Oh! We have to do that!' It's more like, 'Man, I've never had this much fun on a set, ever!'

"And when you promise that you're going to stay in touch with everyone after a project, you never do that. And on this project, we all did.

"We all stay in contact and keep hanging out, no matter how busy we are. So we were like, 'We should have the cameras on us. It should be just us, messing around, this locker room/frat house-type atmosphere.' "

After shooting a documentary on male strippers called La Bare, Joe has picked up a few new moves which he is keen to show off in Magic Mike XXL.

He told website Vulture: "I've got a whole bunch of routines that I've been thinking about, so I've got those in my back pocket. I've got some good ones.

"Like a couple of guys in La Bare do this move that's almost like a volleyball dive, so I've called dibs on that one. You can't shoot a documentary about a strip club and not get ideas!"
