Alex Pettyfer Set to Star in Soderbergh's Magic Mike
Posted 05.13.11 by Chris
You've probably heard about Alex Pettyfer's infamous "Thank You" tattoo. Now you might get to see it in the I Am Number Four star's new project.
Pettyfer is set to play a male stripper in Steven Soderbergh's movie Magic Mike, based on Channing Tatum's real-life experience of working the stripper's pole early in his career.
Despite two movies that underperformed (I Am Number Four and Beastly), and a less than flattering reputation, the movie roles keep rolling in for the new star.
The idea of Magic Mike came about when Soderbergh and Tatum were working together on the espionage drama Haywire. According to Deadline, Pettyfer will play a young Tatum baring it all, while Channing plays his older mentor.
