ET was behind the scenes of Beckford's first photo shoot, as the pros gave him some tips.
"When in doubt, look someone in the eye and body roll," one dancer told him.
"You're a shoe-in," said another. "They're going to go nuts, man. Absolutely!"
Beckford will be following in the footsteps of Sharknado star Ian Ziering and 98 Degrees member Jeff Timmons. The 44-year-old supermodel/actor will be showing off his perfect physique from April 30 through May 24 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.
No stranger to showing skin, Beckford is also starring in the highly anticipated Chocolate City, which tells the story of a college student who turns to stripping in order to pay the bills. The plotline might sound familiar, but Beckford is quick to warn viewers from comparisons to Magic Mike.
"I hate when people use that reference, because it's totally about a different kind of experience," Beckford told HIV Plus magazine of the upcoming film, which also stars Michael Jai White, Vivica A. Fox and Carmen Electra. "Black strip clubs and white strip clubs are totally different."
