Did you spend the bulk of last weekend binge watching Season 2 of Orange Is The New Black? I still haven’t gotten around to it as of yet but plan on carving out some time this upcoming one.

Bennett (Matt McGorry) and Daya’s (Dascha Polanco) forbidden love affair play out is one of the more engaging storylines. If you’ve seen McGorry without his shirt, you know why his prison guard character is a fan favorite.

In a new video from College Humor, Matt channels his inner male stripper for what he thinks is an audition for Magic Mike XXL. Watch him show off his killer abs in the sexy clip below.

Steven Soderbergh directed Magic Mike but is stepping down from the sequel but will remain an executive producer. After months of speculation, his successor has been uncovered. Greg Jacobs has been bestowed the enviable task of directing oiled-up buff men for the highly-anticipated sequel.

Jacobs has been Soderbergh’s right-hand man for many projects. He’s been the first assistant director on such films as Solaris, Traffic, Erin Brockovich and all the Ocean’s Eleven films. The last film he directed was Wind Chill released in 2007 starring Emily Blunt. Indiewire was the first to break the news, along with the official title of the sequel. Find out below.

Rumblings about a musical version of Channing Tatum’s male stripper flick first surfaced last summer. Given it’s surprising lucrative box office run, it was a no-brainer all parties involved searched for different revenue streams to milk more dollars from horny women and gay men. Naturally, a big song and dance number came to mind. A year after Tatum first teased about it, Magic Mike, The Musical is officially a thing now. The 33-year-old actor confirmed the news earlier this week via Twitter.

Steven Soderbergh, producer and director of Magic Mike, along with Tatum have enlisted a top creative team to adapt the film into a Broadway musical. Deadline.com reports Next to Normal’s Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey will write the songs and Glee writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will write the book. In addition to fast tracking the project to the Great White Way stage, a sequel is also in the works.

If both ventures prove successful, Tatum just might overtake Robert Downey, Jr on Forbes’ Highest-Paid Actors List. While we wait for both projects to come to fruition, check out my favorite scene from the original film below.

Channing Tatum Talks Magic Mike Sequel

In: Donovan, Movies

With Steven Soderbergh announcing his plans to retire from the industry, who will direct the sequel to Magic Mike? Channing Tatum answered that and revealed other juicy details about the follow up to his surprise hit stripper flick.

During his promotional obligations for White House Down, the 33-year-old actor told the Hollywood Reporter that his producing partner Reid Carolin and he would direct it or Greg Jacobs would helm it. Just in case you don’t know who Jacobs is, he’s been Soderbergh’s right-hand man for almost 25 movies and worked as a producer on Magic Mike. Find out the other major reveal below.

Did Alex Pettyfer Test For 50 Shades of Grey?

In: Donovan, Movies

Yes and no. The 23-year-old Brit did film a scene as Christian Grey, but he wasn’t auditioning for the coveted role. Instead it was a screen test for Gus Van Sant (Milk & Good Will Hunting). According to The Wrap, Van Sant filmed a scene in a bid to direct the film adaptation of E L James’ best-selling erotic novel.

The scene he selected was a steamy one. It involved Pettyfer’s kinky billionaire character taking Anastasia Steele’s virginity. What I would give to take a sneak peek at that video. You know 100% Pettyfer was most likely butt naked in it. And if you saw Magic Mike, he certainly has a nice ass.

Whether Van Sant snags the directing gig or not, it gives a sense of what kind of director Universal is looking for. Even though they forked over $3 million for the movie rights, no director or stars are attached to the highly-anticipated project. Though numerous names have been dropped.

Pettyfer wouldn’t be my first pick to play the womanizer Christian Grey. I much prefer Stephen Amell (Arrow), who reportedly had a meeting about the role. That said, Alex has that cocky attitude that’s kinda sexy. Since we probably will never see his Gus Van Sant-directed clip, I thought I’d share my favorite scene from Magic Mike. Check it out below.

Who’d You Rather: Birthday Boy Edition

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

Both hail from the United Kingdom and both are celebrating birthdays today (April 10). In honor of their special day, I thought I’d pit these two studs against each other in our latest Who’d You Rather battle. They may be a decade apart, but these two are equally sexy and handsome. After checking out the following evidence (shirtless photos), be sure to cast your verdict in the poll. Who do you want to give the birthday bumps to?

Alex Pettyfer made a huge splash in 2011. The 23-year-old actor starred in three films- I Am Number Four (Dianna Agron), Beastly (Vanessa Hudgens) and In Time (Justin Timberlake). Personally, I didn’t get the hype until I saw him practically bottoming for Matthew McConnaughey during a stripping tutorial in Magic Mike. Instantly, I became a fan. He can next be seen later this year in Butler starring Robin Williams and James Marsden. Pettyfer also modeled for Burberry in 2008-2009.

Charlie Hunnam gained a huge gay following after appearing in the UK version of Queer as Folk. Now, the 33-year-old is best known for playing Jax Teller on Sons of Anarchy. His film credits include Nicholas Nickleby (Anne Hathaway), Cold Mountain (Jude Law), and Children of Men (Clive Owen). Hunnam will headline this summer’s sci-fi flim, Pacific Rim. Charlie was previously married to actress Katharine Towne but divorced in 2002.

2013 MTV Movie Awards Nominations Announced

In: Donovan, Movies

Now that the 85th Annual Academy Awards are in the history books, it’s time for nonsensical and fun ceremonies to take front and center. Cue the MTV Movie Awards. In all actuality, the event is one big launching pad for movie studios to promote their upcoming big budget summer offerings instead of honoring greatness. With that said, any awards show that has a Best Shirtless Performance is alright by me. That pec battle, along with Best Musical Moment are two new categories added this year.

Leading the pack with seven nominations apiece are Django Unchained and Ted. Silver Linings Playbook landed six nominations and Dark Knight Rises earned five. In somewhat of a surprising turn of events, Twilight which usually dominates the awards show, scored only one nod. Twihards have apparently moved on to something else. The sole nomination goes to Taylor Lautner for Best Shirtless Performance. He’s got some stiff competition in the form of Channing Tatum and other sexy studs.

Rebel Wilson who’s hosting this year’s ceremony is up for three awards herself- Best Female Performance, Breakthrough Performance and Best Musical Moment. If you loved her in Pitch Perfect, be sure to cast your vote for her. Voting begins now at MovieAwards.MTV.com through April 13. The show airs live April 14 from the Sony Pictures Studios lot in Culver City, California. Check out all the nominations below.

The New York Film Critics Circle revealed their winners today. They’re the first of the major critic awards to do so. Historically, they have a so-so record when it comes to correctly predicting Oscar winners. With that said, NYFCC’s annual list is very important because it could highlight an otherwise forgotten film or build momentum for a film’s chances at all the upcoming awards to follow.

Last year, this group correctly chose Meryl Streep (Best Actress), The Artist (Best Picture) and Michel Hazanavicius (Best Director). Will they fare better or worse this year. I’m sure Kathryn Bigelow and Steven Spielberg are hoping they’re bang on. Both director’s films nabbed multiple honors. Zero Dark Thirty and Lincoln both scored three wins each.

The most surprising nod for me was for Matthew McConaughey. The 43-year-old actor won Best Supporting Actor for his roles in Bernie and Magic Mike. This is the second time McConaughey has been honored for his work in the stripper flick. Last week, the Independent Spirit Awards gave him Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor nominations for Killer Joe and Magic Mike respectively. Will showing off his abs and butt finally earn Matthew an Oscar statue? He’s certainly generating some serious buzz with all these acknowledgements. Check out all the other winners below.
