Alex Pettyfer Will Play Steven Soderbergh’s Male Stripper

Alex Pettyfer has plenty of experience stripping for talk-show hosts and arty photographers, and now, that very particular acumen has won him a coveted movie role. He's just joined the cast of Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike, where he'll star opposite Channing Tatum as a brand-new male stripper learning the ropes (the film is based on Tatum's brief stint wearing tear-away pants when he was a Florida 19-year-old). At least we know that Pettyfer won't forget to say "thank you." [Deadline]
