Channing Tatum TWERKS + new poster for Magic Mike XXL [PHOTOS + VIDEO]

Posted by | Ray Cornelius 

Versatile actor Channing Tatum aims to please!  The “Magic Mike XXL” star twerked for Jennifer Lopez after presenting her with an MTV Movie Award Sunday night.  Fellow cast mates Adam Rodriquez, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello looked on in amusement as Channing showed off his twerking skills for J. Lo.

“Magic Mike XXL” reunites the quartet along with Kevin Nash and Gabriel Iglesias, stars of the 2012 worldwide hit “Magic Mike.” Picking up the story three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, “Magic Mike XXL” finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them. On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.

Joining the returning cast, in brand new roles, are Amber Heard (“The Rum Diary”), Donald Glover (“Community”), Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss (“Step Up Revolution”) and Michael Strahan (“Live with Kelly and Michael”), with Andie MacDowell (“Footloose”), Elizabeth Banks (“The Hunger Games” franchise), and Jada Pinkett Smith (“Gotham”).
