Magic Mike Casts WWE’s Kevin Nash

Kevin Nash. Feast your eyes!

Magic Mike continues to expand its beefcake roster. Now WWE Legends wrestler Kevin Nash has signed on for Steven Soderbergh's male stripper extravaganza, perhaps adding some gruffness to the cast that includes Channing Tatum, Adam Rodriguez, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Mangianello, and the king of beefcakes, Matthew McConaughey. Nash's previous credits include playing Super Shredder in Ninja Turtles II as well several wrestling-oriented roles and some bit parts in The Longest Yard and the upcoming Rock of Ages. But for this movie, it's pretty clear the most important credits are frighteningly well-defined pectoral muscles (Nash's diet includes twelve egg whites a day) and the desire to drop trou and wriggle. Having the nickname "Big Sexy" probably doesn't hurt! [Deadline]
