Joe Manganiello Shows Conan O’Brien How to Work It Like ‘Magic Mike’

TBS

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.'

Is a ‘Magic Mike 2′ Coming Our Way? Channing Tatum Says, “Yes, Yes and Yes”

'Magic Mike 2'
Warner Bros.

Enough of "reading the subtext" and complimenting the story line of 'Magic Mike.' Pretty much everyone who actually goes to see the movie is only going to gawk at a shirtless and sometimes naked Channing Tatum. (There's no harm in admitting that.) So, fans of the film probably won't be disappointed when they find out that a second 'Magic Mike' might be in the works.

Reel Women: ‘Magic Mike’

Magic Mike
Warner Bros.

There's a lot of commotion about Steven Soderbergh's latest film, 'Magic Mike,' a film based, in part, on star Channing Tatum's early days as a stripper. It's the movie of the moment, but is it breezy, sexy fun, or a film that highlights a grim double-standard?

Sibling Revivalry: A Return to the Movie Theater for ‘Magic Mike’

Magic Mike
Warner Bros.

I think I’ve made it pretty clear that my sister loathes the in-theater experience. Which is why I was shocked at her reaction after I showed her the ‘Magic Mike’ trailer last month. “I want to see that one opening night!” she squealed. I decided right there that I’d do her one better – I’d take her with me to an advanced screening and we’d write about it. That was the moment, folks, when a very special episode of Sibling Revivalry was born.

I’ll say this much: any future screening that Lindsay attends will have a lot to live up to. She was all giggles and gapes despite having to wait in line for 20 minutes before checking in – the amount of hunky, muscle-bound men (more than a few of them strippers accompanying journalists for perspective pieces) outnumbered women three to one. Though, at one point, she did demand to be served Cosmopolitans. I think she has a much more glamorous perception of my life as a film writer than I’ve earned.

Once we were comfortably seated in the balcony, Lindsay set forth scouting the fresh meat on all sides – having imaginary conversations with beautiful couples (“Love me! Your boyfriend can join!”), fanning herself, and generally acting more ornery than I’ve seen her in years. We couldn’t stop giggling. When projector problems caused the film to begin on the wrong scene – coincidentally, one that flashes Channing Tatum’s bare butt – Lindsay shrieked, “You’re giving it away! Fix it!” As the problem was righted, she mused her concern that the film would never be able to live up to the attractiveness of its audience.

Luckily, Steven Soderbergh’s latest did, in fact, meet – nay, exceed – her expectations. Here’s the conversation we had after screening ‘Magic Mike’ together – let this one live in infamy as the first transcription that almost caused me to suffocate with laughter.

‘Magic Mike’ Review

Magic Mike
Warner Bros.

My grandmother had something she loved to say. “What's good for the goose is good for the gander.” (Yes, my grandmother was a talking Grant Wood painting.) We live in an age where titillating sexploitation films with half-naked women are dropped into theaters every few weeks so maybe once in a while it should be the menfolk who get naked?

But a funny thing happened on the way to the strip club. 'Magic Mike' - which one could be forgiven for dismissing as a beefcake 'Showgirls' based solely on the ads - is the latest from American cinema's most skilled mercenary, Steven Soderbergh. Oh, it's got abs in your face and then some, but it's also a smart look at blue collar struggles in one of America's less-glamorous outposts.
