Michael Strahan revealed on Monday that he’ll be featured in “Magic Mike XXL.” He confirmed the news on “Live with Kelly and Michael,” and admitted he has work to do to get in shape for the male stripper sequel.
“I’m getting ready to do something that’s making me nervous,” Strahan said. “I’m about to do something that started as a joke on the show.”
Channing Tatum, who produced and starred in “Magic Mike,” offered Strahan a role in the film’s sequel during two previous appearances on “Live.” On Monday, Strahan told co-host Kelly Ripa that he will indeed be wearing very little for the part.
“It’s kind of a thong thing,” Strahan explained.
Joining Tatum and Strahan are Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello, who will all reprise their roles from the original movie. As TheWrap previously reported, Matthew McConaughey will not return for the sequel.
In addition to co-hosting “Live with Kelly and Michael,” Strahan joined “Good Morning America” in 2014 as an anchor and contributor to the morning news program.
“Magic Mike XXL” is slated to open on July 1, 2015.
