Dear Gossips,

I wrote yesterday in the open about Matthew McConaughey not returning for the Magic Mike sequel and wondered whether or not Channing Tatum could carry it with Matt Bomer and Joe Meatball supporting him.

Deadline is reporting that Jada Pinkett Smith is in talks to join the cast as the owner of a strip club. It’s a role that was initially meant for a man. I like where we’re going here. I like the chemistry that can potentially come from this with Tatum having to play off a woman who can challenge him. Because most of us seem to agree that giving Meatball more lines wasn’t going to do it.

Here’s Jada earlier this week at the Gotham premiere.

Have a great weekend! And if you’re in Halifax, see you at Word On The Street on Sunday! I’ll be at Wonderful Words at 4pm

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

He didn’t even see her on the screen. But ever since American Hustle, which he compulsively plays on re-run, he’s been her #1 fan. Full Story
