If there's anything we can expect from Magic Mike XXL, it's that we are in for plenty of delicious eye candy.
Yeah, of course, there is Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello, but lest we forget the gorgeous Matt Bomer and chiseled Adam Rodriguez who round out the lead cast? The two are a couple of hunky scene stealers and when ET's Nischelle Turner paid them a visit on the set, they proved just why the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
"We all knew from the first [Magic Mike] everybody showed up ready to play and we all knew the kind of commitment that that [the sequel] was going to require," Rodriguez said. And if there's one thing the cast was synced up on it was getting their bodies in pristine shape before stripping down for the film.
"There's a lot of solidarity going on between us as far as like, keeping in shape," Bomer revealed. Rodriguez added, "We're all really competitive guys and so I don't think anybody wanted to be the guy that showed up slipping."
Well, from the looks of the teaser trailer, these guys aren't going to be letting anyone down. The pair tell ET that they've picked up some new moves and more choreography since Magic Mike, while Bomer admits he has finally mastered a far more important skill since the first film: putting on a thong.
"They were homemade so there were no tags and it was my first time putting one on," Bomer told ET in 2012. "All the holes looked the same." When the actor recalled the mishap to ET on the set of XXL, he assured us he knows what he's doing this time around. "I think now I'm ready to go," he said. "I'm ready. No assistance required."
As for just how far Bomer and company push the boundaries in the sequel? Expect the unexpected. "I think people are going to be surprised by what they expect which is my favorite way to experience a sequel," Bomer said.
"I think we did a good job of keeping it sexy and just the touch of raunch you might expect from a group of male strippers," Rodriguez said.
