According to a recent interview with VMAN magazine, actor Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four) revealed he has a tattoo above his crotch that reads “thank you.” “In case I forget to say it,” he said while winking. Man, what a dick. Now the dick will play a guy who dances his dick-off for ladies. How appropriate?
Pettyfer will star in Steven Soderbergh‘s Magic Mike, about the life of two male stripper friends. Channing Tatum will play the mentor stripper, while Pettyfer will play the student stripper. The story is based on Tatum’s real life experiences as a male stripper, but Pettyfer is playing the Tatum role. I can imagine Tatum saying to Pettyfer, “I wouldn’t have said the line like that. So stop saying it like that… me?”
Soderberg is using Saturday Night Fever as a model for the film. I assume that means there’s a sequence where Pettyfer wears a white, crotchless disco outfit. (Deadline)
