In case you’re wondering who’s going to have the best bod in Magic Mike XXL, it seems the answer is all of them. “There’s a lot of solidarity going on between us as far as like, keeping in shape,” Matt Bomer tells ET Online.
Co-star Adam Rodriguez concurs. “We’re all really competitive guys and so I don’t think anybody wanted to be the guy that showed up slipping.”
Speaking of slipping, if you’ve been holding your breath waiting for the call to be Bomer’s dresser, you can now exhale. Back in 2012, the actor detailed the difficulty he experienced getting into his first-ever thong. “They were homemade so there were no tags and it was my first time putting one on,” he said. “All the holes looked the same.”
This time around, Bomer says he doesn’t need any help. “I think now I’m ready to go,” he tells ET’s Nischelle Turner. “I’m ready. No assistance required.”
Listen for the collective sigh of disappointment from around the world.
As for what you’ll see in the sequel (aside from more skin from Joe Manganiello), Bomer says to expect the unexpected. “I think people are going to be surprised by what they expect, which is my favorite way to experience a sequel.”
Magic Mike XXL opens July 1. Check out Bomer and co-star Adam Rodriguez’s behind the scenes interview below.
