The Magic Mike Sequel

“Magic Mike XXL” is the name of a 2015 summer hit movie that was directed by Gregory Jacobs. The film is a comedy drama that stars Channing Tatum, Kevin Nash and Joe Manganiello as the leading roles.

“Magic Mike XXL” is the sequel to the film from 2012, Magic Mike. Interestingly enough the sequel also happens to take place three years after the events of the first movie. In this movie now the character Mike, played by Channing Tatum, has given up his life of being a male stripper and now has a furniture business. His life seems to be going very well for the moment until one day at random, his former co-worker Tarzan, played again by Kevin Nash, calls him up and tells him that their former boss Dallas is “gone.” Mike, in an unhappy mood, goes to a hotel and sees his old crew the “Kings of Tampa” living and holding their own personal pool party. Here he learns that Dallas is actually alive and well but decided to leave the country and start his own show in Macau. The crew also lets Mike know that they have their own plan, which is to take a road trip to Myrtle Beach for a stripping convention as a way to end their stripping careers on a high note. Mike doesn’t want to at first but eventually decides he wants in after giving it a second thought.

Channing Tatum may be the leading role in the film but there are several other roles, major and minor, who fill out the rest of the cast, one of them being actress Crystal Hunt. Hunt plays the character of Lauren, who is one of the many female roles in the movie and eventually aides in getting Mike and his crew to their position in the convention in the first place.

Aside from “Magic Mike XXL,” Crystal Hunt has been involved in her fair share of film and television roles. Hunt’s major role came on television when she took on the character of Lizzie Spaulding in the daytime soap opera “Guiding Light,” which earned her a Daytime Emmy Award nomination. Hunt’s other major role was playing Stacy Morasco on another soap opera called “One Life to Live” for three years.  She’s also extremely well reviewed, as her aggregate score on Metacritic would imply.
