An email exchange
I was busy
trying to decipher TV theme songs writing an article on subsea processing, when an email popped up from my sweet friend Katie at 5:07 yesterday evening. The subject line simply read: “This movie looks like it’s going to suck.”
I was intrigued.
Upon opening the message, I was greeted by a simple link. Hovering my mouse over said link, I began to get excited at what the click may bring. Like me, Katie is proficient in the love language of sarcasm.
I never in a million years expected this from Entertainment Weekly:
HELLO IHGB HALL OF FAMER MATT BOMER!
If I lean waaaaaaay over to the side of my computer, it looks like he’s smiling at me! Oh Matthew Bomer. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
There’s one ab. Two abs. Three abs.
WELL HELLO FUTURE HALL OF FAMER CHANNING TATUM!
Sweet, cut, ripped Channing has been given much love on this site (see HERE). I think he’s just darling. And if he wants to bow up shirtless next to my sweet Matthew, so be it.
A quick Google search explains the glittery stance of these young men. Apparently Steven Soderbergh (mastermind behind the Ocean’s trilogy) has gathered some of Hollywood’s nicer abs and assembled them together in a movie called Magic Mike which is loosely based on Tatum’s brief stint as a professional dancer who occasionally visits parties for ladies about to leave the single life.
I’ve learned that Bomer and Tatum will be joined by a colorful cast of characters, including this IHGB Hall of Famer:
This guy who is en fuego:
And this young man who I doesn’t look a day over 20-years-old:
Had they replaced the above young tween heartthrob with the one below…
And maybe added this dude:
And this dude to the cast of characters:
It would be perfect.
Katie’s right. This movie is totally going to suck.
