Taye Diggs is pulling out all the stops to land a role in the upcoming Magic Mike sequel!
OK, so maybe that's not the reason the Private Practice hunk posted Vine videos of himself pole-dancing, but it would be an effective audition tape.
In the clips, Taye shows off serious moves — and serious biceps, thanks to his tank top.
In the final upload, the 43-year-old star lowers himself slowly down the pole, staring wide-eyed at the camera. You gotta see the video to understand — it's hilarious.
Taye, who's now starring on Murder in the First, is not opposed to playing a stripper on-screen.
"Honestly, I saw the first [Magic Mike], and I loved it," he told Conan O'Brien in July. "I'm a huge fan of Channing Tatum's. But I was thinking, you know, and telling other people, 'How can you have a movie about male strippers, and you ain't got no black people in it?' You know what I'm saying? So I started telling people that, and the next thing you know, now we're in talks."
In talks, eh? Taye even says he has a name for his character already: "I would be Chocolate Thunder Down Under."
Yikes. That's an image.
