After spending years acting in mid-rent Spanish-language telenovelas, William Levy's steamy presence in Jennifer Lopez's "I'm Into You" music video has helped propel The Smoking Gun favorite to the Hollywood mainstream, joining the cast of upcoming major motion picture Magic Mike, directed by Oscar-winning Steven Soderbergh (Erin Brockovich, Oceans Eleven, etc., Sex, Lies and Videotape), JustJared reveals.
The movie, which stars hottie Channing Tatum, is about the actor's days as a teen working as a g-string, lap-dancing stripper at Florida club Male Encounter, who schools a protege—played by former Gap & Burberry model Alex Pettyfer—on how to hustle on- and offstage.
Also recently joining the cast: ever-delicious Matthew McConaughey, playing a stripper-turned-club owner named Dallas; White Collar blue-eyed beauty Matt Bomer and—on the verge of signing—True Blood’s Joe Manganiello, who would play stripper "Big Dick Richie."
A source told JustJared, “Will is ready to heat up the silver screen. Just wait till you see his stripping moves." Oh, I have been imaging just that for so many months.
