Joe Manganiello Joins Cast of Pee-Wee Herman’s New Movie

My favorite announcement of the week!

From Pee-Wee’s blog:

Finally! I can announce the secret I’ve been carrying around with me for weeks: the coolest actor on the planet, my friend Joe Manganiello, is joining the cast of my new movie, ‘Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’. Who does he play? I didn’t say…

Joe’s already my friend in real life– and he’s tremendously talented and a terrific person! I am so glad we are FINALLY going to get to work together! This totally makes up for being cut out of ‘Magic Mike’ and ‘Magic Mike 2’!”

Manganiello remarked, “Paul Reubens is one of the great comic geniuses of our time. Growing up, my Saturday mornings were all about Pee-wee Herman. I saw everything he did. I can’t believe that I’m going to get to share scenes with one of the iconic figures of my childhood.”

I’m a HUGE Pee-Wee Herman fan. (And of course Joe, but that goes without saying…)

In an interview with TIME Magazine, Channing Tatum promises movie goers more naked Joe Manganiello in the upcoming Magic Mike XXL:

Tatum: One of our first stops is at a drag club on our odyssey. We call it a stripper odyssey because it’s a traveling band of strippers. This movie is a lot more fun. In the first movie, we were obligated to show the underbelly — the pitfalls and dangers of being in that world. In this one, we kicked off a lot of the darkness. We’re going to have a lot of fun on the road together. Hopefully you’re going to care about these guys, and then get to see a lot of ridiculous nakedness and stupidity.

TIME: That’s what America wants.

Tatum: We got Joe Manganiello naked as much as possible. Everyone in the world: you’re welcome.

After last night’s election woes, I can certainly use some Channing Tatum today.

Says Channing in the article: “I’m wholly changed from where I was at the beginning,” he says. “I have a flashlight, and this is a really big room.”

The submissions keep coming in to fill the temporary opening as “gardener” for ELLEN since “Nick the Gardener” is away shooting the upcoming Magic Mike XXL.

This is Max Emerson and according to his video he holds “a doctorate in shirtless landscaping from the University of Abercrombie & Fitch,’ and has ‘trimmed bushes’ for such celebs as Pamela Anderson, Justin Bieber and Betty White.

And look! Max has friends for those really big “trim” jobs…
