"He kept the prop," Mr McConaughey revealed to Access Hollywood's guest correspondent Dave Karger at the Oscar Nominees Luncheon regarding the bust that Channing Tatum looks at in the image. "So yeah, he sent that and he goes, 'All right. 'We're off. We're writing.' And I was like, 'Good. I'm there with you'," the actor further shared.
The Perez Hilton report reveals Matthew McConaughey has been expressing his interest to come back for the "Magic Mike" movie sequel. "I know it's something that's legitimately brewing. In the right way [I would come back]. It would be so much fun, but I would only be able to revisit Dallas if I really go, 'OK, that's what he would be doing'...I'd have to keep him the same tone," the actor stated.
"True Blood" star Joe Manganiello revealed to ET News his answer to the question on whether he will return to "Magic Mike 2" or not. "Think Reid's writing and [Channing Tatum] is talking to Reid, but there's nothing concrete yet. But would I like to work with those guys again? Yea. I think I probably had the best time I've ever had in my life working on that movie," the 37-year-old actor shared.
