An interview with Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Kevin Nash and Jada Pinkett Smith will air on Nightline tonight at 12:35 a.m. ET
ABC News – Bomer told “Nightline” he was glad the cast had each other to lean on because having to stick to the diet alone was “not fun at all.”
“When we hadn’t had any carbohydrates in a couple of months, and we were starting to fall out in a take we could at least find solace in each other,” Bomer, 37, said.
The Magic Mike XXL cast is in Miami, to promote the film and they was honored with a star at the official Miami Walk of Fame. I have the first HQ pictures added in our gallery, check it:
It’s a Bomerland this week! Earlier today Matt visited Good Morning America, for another – and solo, this time – interview.
In an interview with “Good Morning America”’s co-anchor Robin Roberts, Bomer, 37, revealed that he got carried away at his sister’s wedding shortly after completing the indie hit that tells the behind-the-scenes story of male strippers.
“At the reception dance, I started to bust out some ‘Magic Mike’ moves, just some gyrations, some- – you know, letting it all hang out there. And I realized that my cousins were like, ‘Whoa, dude. Like, can you not do that at your sister’s wedding reception?’” he said, laughing. “I was like, ‘You know what? I should probably pull back on these.’”
Bomer reprises the role of Ken – the spiritual stripper who moonlights as an actor – in “Magic Mike XXL,” the sequel to hit, and the actor told Roberts that the cast truly enjoyed spending time together.
“I mean, I think it all starts with (co-star) Channing (Tatum),” he said. “He’s an incredible leader who treats everyone with some equanimity. And I think also just there’s a solidarity and a bond that forms when you have to get naked together in front of groups of strangers.”
Bomer also revealed that he sings in this film, thanks to Tatum — who plays Magic Mike. The original film was loosely based on Tatum’s real-life experience as a male stripper.
“(Tatum) wanted everybody to get a chance to shine in this movie and do something unique to them,” Bomer said. “And he said going into the movie he knew that it was going to be road trip movie and that I was going to sing. That was our starting template.”
“Magic Mike XXL” his theaters July 1.
Yesterday Matt stopped by to visit Live with Kelly and Michael, and you can watch the interview below:
Matt chatted yesterday with The Frank DeCaro Show on SiriusXM, and you can listen now the entire interview. Listen it:
Bomer went to college with Joe Manganiello.
“I’ve known Joe since we were 18. We went to college together at Carnegie Mellon. It’s just been so amazing to get to work with somebody that I’ve known for so long.”
He’s pumped to work with Lady Gaga on American Horror Story.
“I’m so excited. I start pretty much right when we finish he press tour for [Magic Mike XXL]. I wish I could tell you a lot — all I can say with confidence is it’s a rich, dark tapestry that the brilliant Ryan Murphy has put together this season. I mean, it is dark. All the storylines are very very strong. I’m really excited to work with Lady Gaga …and I get to work with not only her, who I’m a huge fan of as an artist, but also with these great bucket list actors.”
HBO’s Montgomery Clift biopic is still in the works.
“This incredible cast is shaping up who I can’t really talk about yet. I’m terrified. It’s a huge, huge responsibility to tell anyone’s story, but someone who is such an icon and so inspirational to me and to really try to paint him in a light that I think he would be proud of and not just give in to all the sort of stereotypes that you hear about his story.”
