Another hunk has been added to the list of the much-anticipated 2015 sequel Magic Mike XXL. Nick the Gardner (Billy Reilich) has made countless shirtless appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this past month, with the host and himself campaigning for him to be cast in the sequel. Lucky for him, Channing Tatum made a surprise call into the show Monday revealing that he has made the cut!
Sure helps to be DeGeneres's "gardner"!
"Nick! What's up man?" he said. "After careful inspection of your ab region, we have deducted that we need you in Magic Mike XXL."
According to Reilich's official Facebook page, besides being Nick the Gardner on Ellen, he also considers himself a TV personality and cream pie extraordinaire. The Ellen star and his band The Cream Pies make music video spoofs — think Justin Timberlake's "Dick in a Box" concept but with not nearly as many hits.
Nothing that wont fit in to Magic Mike XXL, which Tatum has dubbed as being bigger and badder then the first.
"This is the Super Bowl version of what the first one was," the Book of Life star, 34, said of Magic Mike XXL. "I'm dancing probably five times as much in this one."
The second installment, although it has lost the ranks of Matthew McConaughey it has gained some famous faces such as Amber Heart, Elizabeth Banks, Jada Pinkett Smith and Michael Strahan.
The up-coming comedy is scheduled to hit theaters on July 1, 2015. We assume Ellen will be front row and center for this film!© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
