Totally necessary 'Magic Mike' update: Matt Bomer talks first thong, Joe Manganiello talks routines

Male stripper movie Magic Mike has already proven itself a gift that keeps on giving. Two of the stars are making headlines today for talking about the movie that they’re not even promoting yet. Matt Bomer shared a great story with MTV News about his first run-in with a thong. “I had never worn a thong before, so the first time I tried it, I put it on wrong and my junk didn’t fit in it,” he said. “I had to call a wardrobe person in and go, ‘Something’s wrong with my thong, you guys. I think we’re gonna have to figure this out,’ and they’re like, ‘Uh, yeah your legs are in the wrong holes.’ So, that was step one.” He went on to explain that there’s a technique to tearaway clothes, and that director Steven Soderbergh made him feel like he was shooting a documentary. Combine those two thoughts, and you have the makings of the best DVD featurette ever.

Co-star Joe Manganiello, meanwhile, dished to the LA Times‘ Ministry of Gossip about the routines in the film, which is a comedy. (“It’s like Animal House and Hangover funny,” Manganiello said.) Each stripper has his own theme. READ FULL STORY

Jordan Knight makes surprise appearance at all-female Halloween karaoke party: Watch!

This is like a dream that I, someone whose high school yearbook was filled with classmates wishing her a lifetime of happiness with New Kids on the Block’s Jordan Knight, didn’t even know I still had. Bloggers attending the closing night event of last week’s BlissDom Canada social media conference for women in Toronto were treated to a surprise appearance by Knight, who’d been brought in by eOne Music to thank the ladies for supporting his solo album, Unfinished, which has produced two Top 40 hits in Canada. He was expected to pose for photos, but the women got more than that — he joined a large group of them onstage karaoking NKOTB’s “Step By Step” and “Hangin’ Tough.” Watch a video below, which includes a Queen of Hearts dancing up on him while a Black Swan watches at 1:14, and him admitting that he also needs to look at the lyrics at 2:35.  READ FULL STORY

Best and worst dance movies you've seen in the theater?

Footloose hits theaters Friday, and, if you’re like me, you’re coming to terms with the fact that you are going to see it (if only to have an informed opinion on EW‘s Lisa Schwarzbaum giving it an A-.) There will be those who go for nostalgia’s sake, but a lot of us, I suspect, have a history of not being to resist dance movies in theaters. So think back: What are the best and worst that you’ve paid to see? I’ll start by listing the ones I remember off the top of my head, favorite to least favorite. READ FULL STORY

'Magic Mike': Who -- and what -- do you need to see in Channing Tatum's stripper movie?

I was just talking to a friend who has yet to hear about Magic Mike, and it occurred to me that there might actually be people who aren’t counting the days until it hits theaters. I do not understand these people. It’s a movie based on Channing Tatum’s early days as a stripper, in which he’ll star as the titular mentor to a younger dancer played by I Am Four‘s Alex Pettyfer. The cast also includes Matthew McConaughey (who’ll play a former stripper who now owns the club, called Xquisite), White Collar‘s Matt Bomer (as another employee), and True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello (as a character named Big Dick Richie). How are you not excited about this? If it’s good, great. If it’s bad, it’s Showgirls, and I’m roadtesting a VIP DVD edition. What’s the male stripper equivalent of the ”Pin the Pasties on the Showgirl” game? I can’t wait to find out.

The film, directed by Steven Soderbergh, starts shooting next month, which, fingers crossed, means we still have time for more casting announcements. (And ladies don’t count!) READ FULL STORY

Dance party on 'Rizzoli & Isles' set for Angie Harmon's birthday: Watch!

I love me some Rizzoli & Isles, and if you’re wondering whether the chemistry between stars Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander is as good offscreen as on, watch the video below of them dancing their way out of the makeup trailer and into Isles’ autopsy room in honor of Harmon’s birthday earlier this week. The three-minute video was shot by the show’s hair stylist Nanci Cascio, who also captured Harmon leading a dance party in the trailer at the end of July. (“How long is this f—in’ song,” her costar Bruce McGill asked waiting his turn in the chair. Hilarious.) Watch that below as well.

What I love most about these videos, besides the fact that in them both Harmon and Alexander are great dancers and don’t take themselves too seriously, is that they weren’t created for marketing purposes. The joy is too genuine for that. And to reward them, I’ll plug the show: Rizzoli & Isles airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on TNT.  READ FULL STORY

Has anyone EVER liked a disco routine on 'SYTYCD'?

Melanie and Marko’s stilted disco routine on last night’s So You Think You Can Dance performance finale really bummed me out. “Oh nooooooooo. DISCO,” I shuddered. I’d forgotten all about it. Must disco still exist? For contestants looking to gain last-minute momentum, the disco seems as death-kissy as the dreaded foxtrot or, God forbid, a Russian nesting doll dance or whatever. “Has anyone EVER liked a disco routine on #SYTYCD? Die die die!” I tweeted feverishly, for I had just scraped up the last of my spicy gouda party spread directly from a small stone plate with my teeth.

Thanks to some of my loyal Twitter pals for reminding me of former disco fabulousness and proving me wrong! READ FULL STORY

Military band's 'Rolling in the Deep' cover sure beats those annoying techno remixes

Am I right or am I really right? I am normally something of a remix queen, but some of those radio remixes of “Rolling in the Deep” make me die inside. Like, way to not get the point of Adele. READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Confessional: Which 'summer song' do you dread hearing?

Summer songs: Usually we talk about them in the happy sense. They’re catchy, they make us feel good, and they’re guilt free as long as the sun is shining. You’re allowed to have “Escape (The Piña Colada Song)” on a playlist as long as it’s titled “Summer.” But today, as I was driving and singing along to Garth Brooks’ “Two Piña Coladas” on the radio, I found myself panicking that the station, obviously feeling the summer vibe on this holiday weekend, would play Smash Mouth’s “All Star.” Just thinking of the opening notes, after all these years, makes me wince. Now playing the radio in the car feels like Russian Roulette. Yes, I can just change the station if it comes on, but the song will have won.

What “summer song” do you live in fear of hearing?  READ FULL STORY

Rachel McAdams Cam takes over the Stanley Cup Finals: Watch!

My girl crush on Rachel McAdams feels fully validated after seeing the video below of her at last night’s Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals. She and her family hit Boston’s TD Garden to watch the Bruins defeat the Vancouver Canucks and even the series at 2-2. McAdams herself was so enthusiastic, they showed her on the JumboTron more than six times and renamed it the Rachel McAdams Cam. Her reaction to that is too cute for words. Watch it for yourself.  READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': Annie Barrett voyages to Planet Mirrorballus for season 12 semifinals (VIDEO)

I’ve never felt so aliiiiiiiiiiive!

Press play below to watch four videos of my trip to outer space. Prepare to wipe away a sparkly tear of joy upon hearing Enthusiastic Chimes Lady (ECL) bless us, the EW.com DANCMSTR nation!
