I obviously didn't write anything about Matthew McConaughey not returning for the Magic Mike sequel, because I was in mourning. Okay, that's a total lie since I am the only person in the world who doesn't Mr. McConaughey attractive. Why isn't he returning to the stripper opus? Well, no one really said. Maybe he has moved on since winning Best Actor this year? Or maybe he is too busy filming other projects. Dallas
Buyers Club really did dance his last dance.

In other casting news, it appears that Andie MacDowell has landed a role in XXL. There is no official news as to who she will be playing, but there are a few possibilities. XXL is a road trip movie that culminates in a stripper convention. Perhaps she is one of the patrons who is lucky enough to see Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, and Joe Mangeniello take it all off? Maybe she is a mother of a trouble daughter determined to go to the convention. Or maybe, just maybe, she will be a love interest for one of the boys. May-December romances happen all the time with younger women, so why not have Mr. Tatum shacking up with Andie? I'm down.
