Stephen Soderbergh has NO fear. He was willing to cast a porn star in the lead role in a Hollywood production (The Girlfriend Experience).
He managed to get up to 13 Hollywood heavyweights in one movie without the egos blowing up the set (The 'Oceans' movies).
He cast a female as the lead in an action movie (Haywire).
And now he's making a movie about male strippers. It's called Magic Mike and stars Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, and Alex Pettyfer.
Having read up on these gentlemen I've found that women have a certain affinity for the looks of all three of them. Therefore, I can ascertain that this movie will be highly attended. By boyfriends with girlfriends who owe their ladies favors for making them go to all those ridiculous action movies.
I wanna stand outside the theatre and watch all the dejected guys walking into the theatre so I can laugh and point at them.
*BONUS* Channing Tatum grinds on Ellen.
