Throw that boy p…never mind.
Tyson Beckford, Michael Jai White Cast As Male Strippers In New Film
We’re sure some ladies (and quite a few gents) are going to be super-excited to see this! A new film about the Black male stripper scene is set to hit theaters with Michael Jai White and Tyson Beckford serving as the primary eye candy. How do you think their shirtless, oiled-up gyrations will measure up against Channing Tatum’s? Via Deadline:
Channing Tatum did it with Magic Mike, and his co-star Joe Manganiello sold upcoming docu La Bare on the strength of the tantalizing subject matter. Now indie helmer Jean-Claude LaMarre (Gang Of Roses, Color Of The Cross) is hoping to tap into the world of male strippers with his urban take, Chocolate City, which aims to merge the Magic Mike phenomenon with the recent strength of African-American-themed films at the box office. Black Dynamite star Michael Jai White and model-turned-actor Tyson Beckford are in negotiations to star in the tale of Devin, a college student struggling to make ends meet who meets the owner of a male strip club (White) who convinces him to give amateur night a whirl. Beckford will play Adrian, the club’s former star attraction who finds his popularity fading as the new kid starts to steal the spotlight.
“This movie was in gestation for 2 1/2 years, but after Magic Mike it seemed a natural fit for the African-American female audience,” LaMarr told me. I researched the male exotic club scene and it’s massive across the country, with clubs specifically targeting middle-aged African-American women.”
Finally…a race-themed flick specifically for the thirsty ladies! Will you be watching?
