Matthew McConaughey Signs On To Stripper Flick
Posted on Wed Aug 17, 2011 01:14 PM PDT

McConaugheyAbs0614_03_X17200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Already known for his shirtless off-screen antics, Matthew McConaughey will soon remove his clothes for a new on-screen role – as a stripper.

McConaughey has joined the cast of Magic Mike, a Steven Soderbergh-directed film about three generations of male strippers.

Channing Tatum, who signed on to the flick in April, inspired the storyline; Tatum famously worked as a stripper before his rise to Hollywood stardom.

"This was a wild and pivotal time in my life and I couldn't be more thrilled to go down the rabbit hole with Steven," Tatum shared in a press release announcing the film in April.

McConaughey will play Dallas, a strip club owner and the oldest of three generations of strippers.

Magic Mike will begin filming on September 14 and is scheduled for a 2012 release date.
