After what seemed like an eternity, the boys that brought the heat with their amazing dance moves, washboard abs, and let’s be honest, lack of clothing, are back in the blockbuster sequel, Magic Mike XXL. Just when he thought he was out of the stripping business and resolved to make furniture for the rest of his life, Mike (Channing Tatum) finds himself pulled into one last joyride with the infamous Kings of Tampa male revue, as the boys head to Myrtle Beach for a stripping convention (yes a stripping convention), complete with impromptu gas station stripteases and big reveals, pun intended. This time, however, it’s not just the men sizzling up the screen. Magic Mike XXL features a far more diverse cast this time, adding a number of talented actresses as sizzling as the Florida sun, including Jada Pinkett Smith, Amber Heard and the talented Crystal Hunt.
Crystal Hunt, best known for role as troubled teen Lizzie Spaulding of daytime soap Guiding Light, as well as her popularity on Instagram, which garnered her a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series in 2005, is no stranger to the sizzling hot antics of Magic Mike XXL, as she takes on the role of Lauren. A veteran of the television screen, Crystal Hunt is able to hold her own on screen with what she is given, which is a skill that has also garnered her critical praise for her roles in films like Sydney White and 23 Blast, both of which have highlights on her Vimeo account.
A fun romp in the sun as the curtain closes on a soon to be legendary franchise, Magic Mike XXL brings the heat and the energy of a talented and attractive cast and transports viewers to a fantasy world where the men and women are hot as the sun, and a good time is just a Ginuwine song away.
