New What to Expect When You're Expecting Clip Has Us Excited for Magic Mike
Posted 05.11.12 by Mandy
There's a new clip just released for the upcoming What to Expect When You're Expecting, and though it features the comedic talents of Chris Rock and Rob Huebel, the characters and dialogue are being greatly upstaged.
In the new clip posted by Yahoo! Movies, the Dudes' Group gives Rodrigo Santoro some lessons about life, women, and marriage. The dialogue is solid, and the actors are funny, but it's kind of hard to pay attention to anything else when Joe Manganiello and his abs are there stealing the scene.
While it'll be great to see Manganiello in What to Expect next week, this clip has us thinking about the male-stripper buddy comedy Magic Mike that he'll be appearing in next month. Granted, we tend to spend quite a lot of time thinking about Magic Mike anyway.
The fact that Manganiello only has one line in the clip and simply spends the rest of the time topless and nodding has got us thinking: Why isn't he in more scenes in more movies just standing around without a shirt? That would be a fine addition to almost any scene in almost every movie ever made. And if there isn't enough time for Manganiello to do all the standing-around duty, some of his Magic Mike costars — say, Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, or Adam Rodriguez — would work just fine as replacements.
For those who are actually interested in things like characters and storyline, here's a trailer for the movie that gives some background on the Dudes' Group that we see in the clip.
