Is Alex a Bad Boy?
Why is Pettyfer getting a bad rep?
From the looks of the recent shirtless pics of Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer on set of Magic Mike, moviegoers will be swooning in their seats when the stripper film hits theaters in 2012.

Channing and Alex stripped down in Los Angeles while shooting the Steven Soderbergh film, which revolves around the male stripping industry. And here’s a fun fact: Magic Mike is loosely based on Channing’s former job as an adult dancer. Channing and Alex aren’t the only hotties showing skin in the flick: keep an eye out for Matt Bomer, Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello.

So which Magic Mike hottie do you prefer: Channing or Alex? Cast your vote and the poll and comment away!

Alex will play a character who gets mixed up in the world of male stripping and hustling to get by. McConaughey will play a former stripper who now owns the club where this slew of sexy men take it all off. 

Director Soderbergh commented on doing the film with Channing, telling Deadline, “When Channing talked to me about this, I thought it was one of the best ideas I’d ever heard for a movie. I said I wanted in immediately. It’s sexy, funny and shocking. We’re using Saturday Night Fever as our model, so hopefully we’re on the right track.”
