The Great Acting in Magic Mike XXL

Magic Mike is a story about male strippers who are really at the top of their game. This story is based on real life events of male strippers and the lives they lead. Magic Mike XXL is a story of a stripper who retired from the game, but then 3 years later decided to come back for one more epic performance. This is a story that obviously would be fun for women to watch, but there are also some men who might think that this is a fun movie to watch. There are individuals out there who may be offended by this movie, but overall it is a very fun movie to watch.

Crystal Hunt, who plays Lauren, is a very great actress in this movie. She has had a lot of success in Hollywood in recent years. She has been able to win Emmy awards and keep her name hot in the industry for a few years. She has been able to really give her career that boost that is needed. There are many different actresses who could have filled the part of Laura, but none who could have done it as eloquently as Crystal. This is something that is easily shown on the screen, not to be confused with CrystalHuntPhotography.

Overall, the full performances of the cast of Magic Mike XXL gives the film a great amount of credibility. This is something that has kept the sequel as a very substantial movie. Without these incredible actors, the movie would not be nearly what it is.

Gambit Confirmed: No ‘Apocalypse’ Cameo.

Fans of Channing Tatum in the upcoming ‘Gambit’ spin off film will have to wait a bit longer to get their first taste of the character. With ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ on the horizon many thought that they would get a sneak peak or cameo appearance of Tatum’s character, but reports show that this likely won’t be happening. As far as we have heard Gambit has been verified as NOT appearing in ‘Apocalypse’. Tatum was asked the question “Will you appear in ‘Apocalypse’?’ during a Reddit AMA and he answered, “No. I definitely will not.”

Which is just too bad. Tatum as Gambit leaves a lot to be desired on the surface of things. We like Channing Tatum as an actor and he gave one of the best Reddit AMA’s that we have ever seen, but that doesn’t mean we think he fits the character well. In almost every other iteration of the character, Gambit has been a long and tall, lanky trouble maker with a sweet Cajun accent. While Tatum can probably learn the accent, he looks far too prototypically ‘buff’ to be right physically for the role — a problem that Tatum probably never expected to have.

Bringing Gambit out for just a small cameo in ‘Apocalypse’ could have gone a long way toward allaying the fears that many fans have about Gambits spin off. It would have been the perfect low pressure way to do it. But alas, Sam Tabar mentioned to a linkedin connection that we will all just have to wait for his film to be released.
