Magic Mike was a movie about strippers trying to make ends meet in the midst of the Great Recession, the difficulty of modern romance, and the dangers of drug use. Magic Mike XXL is a movie about strippers stripping. And not a whole lot else.

Late last week it was reported that WB was eyeing Joel Edgerton and Jon Bernthal as possible replacements for Tom Hardy, who recently dropped out of ‘Suicide Squad.’ And now an even bigger casting report has emerged, adding Karl Urban to the mix of potential Hardy replacements, and offering details on Jared Leto’s Joker, plus a possible cameo from Ben Affleck’s Batman.

There’s no replacing Tom Hardy, really, but Warner Bros. sure is trying. Following yesterday’s news that Jake Gyllenhaal had also passed on the role of ‘Suicide Squad’ de facto leader Rick Flagg comes word that the studio is already eyeing a couple of potential replacements: Joel Edgerton and former ‘The Walking Dead’ star Jon Bernthal. They’re definitely going for someone tough and a bit gritty, but obviously charismatically handsome.

Matthew McConaughey may not be back for more super-sized 'Magic Mike 2' action, as the head honcho from the original feature won't be returning for whatever delights its sequel holds for us, but the film is lining up a very, ahem, eclectic cast so far.

R.I.P. 'True Blood': The Most Memorable (and Slightly Ridiculous) Deaths From Seasons 1-6

EDIT

After six seasons, we're now in the midst of 'True Blood''s final outing, bringing the epic (and ridiculous and 'Twilight'-y at times) love story of Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) to an end. We've lost many memorable characters along the way, from the villainous Russell Edgington to the Vampire Authority to Sookie's own gram. Now, we honor those we lost with a supercut of the most noteworthy and, yeah, straight-up ridiculous deaths from the first six seasons of 'True Blood.'

If you're going to learn refined stripping techniques on television, why wouldn't you want to learn them from professional actor and amateur stripper Joe Manganiello? The guy starred in 'Magic Mike,' after all, and then went on to direct his own documentary about a real-life, all-male stripping revue. He knows his stuff, so why not learn from the best? Late-night talk-show host Conan O'Brien clearly gets that, which is why he asked Manganiello to teach him some tricks on last night's 'Conan.'

[You're hereby warned of major spoilers from last night's 'True Blood' season 7 installment "Fire in the Hole," as well as a few episodes beyond.] Once 'True Blood' season 7's premiere "Jesus Gonna Be Here" killed off a main character before the opening credits, it was safe to say that no one was...well, safe in the show's final year. Last night's "Fire in the Hole" pulled off a few unexpected surprises of its own, but none so much as what befell Joe Manganiello's werewolf character Alcide Herveaux, so what does Manganiello himself have to say of the development?
