    Joe Manganiello on Doing Stripper Dance Scenes: "I've Never Laughed Harder"

    As if peeping star Alex Pettyfer's sexy new six-pack didn't get us hot and bothered enough thinking about Magic Mike, now there's this!

    We caught up with Joe Manganiello at Cirque du Soleil's premiere of IRIS yesterday and (since True Blood is coffin-bound for a while, and his Two and a Half Men guest spot isn't for a few weeks yet) we had to ask him about our future favorite flick. Ya know, like if those rumors that one dude is going to go full frontal are true.

    So will Joe being showing off more than just his trademark washboard abs?

    "You'll have to go see the movie opening night and find out," Joe teased. "Can't let that out of the bag."

    Ugh, we hate it when hunky men play coy! Give us some juicy deets, Manganiello!

    And tho he didn't spill on whether any of his stud cohorts ditch their g-strings, Joe did fill us in on who shakes their booty best.

    "We start shooting all the dance stuff this week, it's amazing," Joe revealed. "I've never laughed harder in my life. I've had the best time. We've been rehearsing for about a month, we just scream. We roll in and out laughing at each other."

    So who's top dog? Duh, the ex-real life stripper still works the stage like a pro:

    "Oh, Channing [Tatum]," Joe responded without hesitation when we asked who had the best moves. "Channing's like on another level. I mean have you seen all those dance movies?"

    As for second place? Well, that may be a bit more shocking—tho quite the pleasant surprise.

    "Well you know Matt Bomer was my drama school classmate," Joe continued. "He was a musical theater major so he's pretty good. His two routines are probably my favorites."

    We don't think this is exactly how Carnegie Mellon meant for you to use your dance training, Matty, but we totally approve. We can't wait to see you shimmy your good-boy rep away!

    Oh and we're excited to see your moves too, Joe!
