Channing Tatum + Matt Bomer Bring ‘Magic Mike XXL’ to L.A. Pride Parade
Magic Mike XXL premieres in just a few weeks, and the cast had some fun courting potential ticket-buyers with an appearance at the L.A. Pride festivities in West Hollywood on Sunday (June 14).
Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer and Adam Rodriguez showed their support for the film — and for the LGBT community — riding on a float festooned with disco balls, as befits a mobile strip club. Sadly, the three actors chose to keep their shirts on, but their float cohorts kept it Magic with bare torsos. Check out photos from the day in the gallery above.
Bomer, who is openly gay, helped distribute promotional hats to help shield parade attendees from the California sun. Tatum dressed for the occasion in a rainbow-striped scarf and matching wristbands, and People reports that he danced to Ginuwine's "Pony" — which, as Magic fans know, received fresh attention in the 2012 original.
Tatum also tweeted, "I'M ON A FLOAT! Celebrated #LAPride45 today with the #MagicMikeXXL crew."
According to IMDB, the sequel's plot is as follows: "Three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, he and the remaining Kings of Tampa hit the road to Myrtle Beach to put on one last blow-out performance." The movie will also feature Elizabeth Banks, Amber Heard, Donald Glover and Joe Manganiello returning as "Big Dick Ritchie."
Magic Mike XXL hits theaters July 1, 2015, and you can watch the official trailer below.
