Matt Bomer Surprised to Be Cast in Magic Mike: “Did They Mean to Call the Guy From Vampire Diaries?”
WhichVampire Diarieshunk should've been added to the cast of Magic Mike? Ian Somerhalder? Paul Wesley? Which guy would've been most willing to be licked by a strange woman?
White Collar actor Matt Bomer talked to E! News about his (strange!) experience playing an exotic dancer in the new film Magic Mike.
"When they called me, I thought, 'Do they have the wrong number? Did they mean to call the guy from Vampire Diaries?'" Matt told E!, laughing. "And at the time I was really skinny so I think there may have been a five-minute window from when I hung up the phone to when I went to the gym."
E! said Matt gained about 15 pounds of muscle for the role. He describes one dance scene in the film where he's dressed as a doctor, stripping on top of a female audience member who is laying on a gurney on the stage.
"Channing [Tatum] told me, 'You have to use the stretcher and just get up on this girl and grind your junk in her face,'" Matt said. "But this girl was not going to just sit there and be ground upon. She started licking me in all kinds of special places and we just kept going…It was one of those situations where you were in an environment where moral parameters are not the same as they are if you're doing a political drama. You just sort of have to say yes to everything and embrace it."
Bless his heart for putting up with a stranger licking him. That is commitment right there. And it's kinda gross. But do you think the women would've bitten a Vampire Diaries star, instead of licking?
