Joe Manganiello's body deserves 1) a slow clap, 2) mass cloning and 3) a special museum on a hill where believers can converge to pay homage. 

You couldn't keep us away from Magic Mike, even if the theater were on fire — which it probably will be, thanks to the hotness. But heterosexual men? They might be a harder sell for a film about male exotic dancers.

The film is loosely based on star Channing Tatum's own experience as a stripper, and he has a unique argument for why other guys like himself should see the movie.

"With Joe Manganiello naked in a movie, I think even straight guys are going to be, 'Sh, I need to see that,'" Channing told OUT’s June-July issue. "That man is a specimen."


Yes, but the True Blood star is also kind of a recipe for male insecurity ... unless he's an inspiration? Can you imagine if men come out of Magic Mike inspired to work out to look more like Joe, Channing, and company? It would be like a public service announcement!
