Oh no! Our favourite actor won’t be returning for Magic Mike XXL


Gabriel Iglesias who featured in Magic Mike has revealed that Matthew McConaughey isn’t likely to return for the sequel.

By the sounds of it, Iglesias might be the slightest bit jealous of McConaughey’s Oscar success for his role in Dallas Buyers Club:

“Word has it Matthew is probably not going to be involved in this one, because he’s worth a lot of money… that whole Oscar thing, the nerve right?”

We can all breathe a sigh of relief though, because the main man Channing Tatum is already preparing for his return:

“I’m about to start training for Magic Mike XXL and it’s back to the monotony of chicken and broccoli.

Your house smells of broccoli for months. There’s no fun. There’s no sugar. There’s nothing I’m more addicted to than sugar.”

Eeek – we’re not sure we could live on chicken and broccoli, but we certainly appreciate the results when Channing does!

Magic Mike XXL is scheduled for release in July 2015.
