Behind Magic Mike XXL

“Magic Mike XXL” is the name of a comedy drama-based film that debuted in July of 2015. The film is directed by Gregory Jacobs and stars Channing Tatum, Kevin Nash and Joe Manganiello as the leading roles.

“Magic Mike XXL” is the sequel to the original Magic Mike movie that came out in 2012. Coincidentally, this movie takes place three years after the events of the first movie where Mike, played again by Channing Tatum, has retired from his life as a male stripper and now works at his own furniture business. Things are going fine for him for the most part until at random his former co-worker Tarzan, played by Kevin Nash again, calls him up and leads him to believe that their old boss Dallas died at some point. Mike goes to a hotel and sees his old co-workers, the “Kings of Tampa” and as it turns out, Dallas isn’t dead but rather he left the country and started up his own stripper show in Macau. With this in mind the Kings tell Mike their new plan is to go on a road trip to Myrtle Beach, where a stripper convention is being held and that will be their grand way of ending their careers. Mike is reluctant to do so at first but after giving it some thought he eventually decides to join in.

Though Channing Tatum fills out the leading male role in the film, other actresses also hold a place, one of them being Crystal Hunt. Hunt plays the character of Lauren, and is one of the ladies who ends up helping Mike and company to the convention in the first place.

Aside from an appearance in the movie, Crystal Hunt has shown that she is not new to being in the entertainment industry, as far as movies and television go. Hunt’s most well known role came on television where she played the character of Lizzie Spaulding on the daytime soap opera “Guiding Light.” For this role Hunt was even nominated for an award in the form of Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Soap Opera. Hunt’s other big role also involved a soap opera, this time playing as Stacy Morasco in “One Life to Live,” where she made appearances on the show for three years. Most recently, Hunt is one of the stars on the reality television series “Queens of Drama.”  Check out her Facebook, as well as her Instagram account to keep reading about where Crystal is going next.
