The cast of
Magic Mike — perhaps better known as that movie about male strippers — is an impressive bunch. Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, and Matthew Bomer join Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer as an all-male revue. Though Tatum is the only one who's opened up about having a stripping past, we already know the rest of the guys are up for the challenge of taking it all off. Don't believe us? Check out the shirtless pasts of Magic Mike's strippin' guys.
Tatum is the film's star for a good reason:
Magic Mike is actually based on his own real-life experiences as an exotic dancer. Tatum is at ease losing his shirt on the big screen, too, going topless in movies like Dear John and She's the Man.

He may be a relative newcomer to the Hollywood scene, but Pettyfer wasted no time taking off his shirt in his first leading role in
Beastly. He'll be playing Tatum's young protegé in the movie, but his shirtless education is already under way.
2 / 5
Stripping down to your skivvies (and less) is pretty much mandatory on
True Blood, which means the show's most popular werewolf should have no problem taking it off for Magic Mike. I imagine those abs will give the ladies in the crowd plenty to howl about.

shirtless world for Matthew McConaughey, and we're just living in it. From movies like Surfer, Dude and Failure to Launch and beyond, this guy has no problem baring all.

The sexy star of
White Collar seems comfortable unbuttoning on TV, but Bomer's big-screen shirtless experience is limited to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. With that in mind, we're more than ready to see him take it to the next level.
