Michael Strahan announced that he will be appearing in the Magic Mike sequel, Magic Mike XXL, after a long courtship from star Channing Tatum.
The former New York Giants defensive end has spoken repeatedly with Tatum on Live with Michael and Kelly about appearing in the movie, which is about the life of a male stripper as one of Tatum's co-workers, according to Next Impulse Sports.
Live with Kelly and Michael highlighted many of Strahan's auditions, including an impressive, pantsless split that surely sealed his bit part in the upcoming film.
Strahan indicates that he will be showing quite a bit of skin in the movie, so co-host Kelly Ripa offered to take him out to some of NYC's finest hair removal spots before the big filming date, which will make for some riveting morning television.
