‘Magic Mike 2′ Casts Amber Heard; Learn How You Too Can Score a Role
Matthew McConaughey may not be back for more super-sized ‘Magic Mike 2‘ action, as the head honcho from the original feature won’t be returning for whatever delights its sequel holds for us, but the film is lining up a very, ahem, eclectic cast so far.
This week has already brought plenty of casting news when it comes to the ladies (heyyy, laddddies) of the cast, with the addition of Andie MacDowell and Jada Pinkett Smith to the lineup, but they won’t be the only actresses on board when the all-stripping ship sets sail next year. The Wrap shares that Amber Heard is the latest actress to join the cast. It’s unclear what role Heard will play, but the outlet refers to it as a “lead” role, so perhaps one of our handsome fellas is getting a new lady? Maybe someone has a sister? Even better, maybe they’re going to start working for a new boss that just so happens to be a woman?
Information on the film’s plot has been kept mostly under wraps so far, but we do know that Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Alex Pettyfer and Joe Manganiello will all be back for more action, with the boys heading out on a road trip. Think of the possible hijinks! Sounds good, right? It gets better, because you too can join the cast of the film. Well, kind of.
Tatum took to his Twitter account to share some exciting news: the film needs extras, and it wants to cast them from the film’s biggest fans. Do you have what it takes (passion, dedication, social media)? Give it a whirl!
