So it was confirmed yesterday that Matthew McConaughey will not return for Magic Mike 2. The storyline is apparently a road trip, and either he wasn’t invited, or he didn’t want to get in the car. I’m thinking…he didn’t want to get in the car.
Channing Tatum will be back though. And Matt Bomer. And …Joe Meatball. Who keeps posting pictures of his ripped body on Twitter while he’s training for the movie even though I’m not sure he had more than 3 lines in the first one.

Is Joe Meatball enough to make up for the absence of Matthew McConaughey?
There’s a reason they weren’t interested when he kept throwing himself at the Superman role.
No disrespect to Matt Bomer because he’s wonderful but he’s not a Movie Star. The only Movie Star left in Magic Mike – until they announce a casting addition – is Channing Tatum. Can Channing Tatum alone carry the Magic Mike sequel? Let me know your thoughts.
