Everyone knows that Magic Mike is going to be the biggest, hottest thing of the summer, right? So of course there will be a sequel! Magic Mike plundered TV for many of its strippers, which means the sequel will probably do the same. Here are our TV picks for future Magic Mike strippers!
#22 Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki — Supernatural
Why pick one Winchester brother when both would be equally awesome as strippers?
#21 Chord Overstreet — Glee
His Sam Evans character already has stripper experience after all.
#20 Eric Dane — Grey’s Anatomy
They don’t call him McSteamy for nothing.
#19 James Van Der Beek — Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23
The actor James Van Der Beek may not want to strip but the character James Van Der Beek would be fine with it.
#18 Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley — The Vampire Diaries
Based on the popularity of the Twilight movies, we conclude that many women find vampires hot. But what about hot vampire brothers?
#17 Joel McHale — Community
It’s not just Dean Pelton who would enjoy it if the clothes came off.
#16 Josh Bowman — Revenge
Emily Thorne is through with her Grayson hottie, so it’s time to share with the rest of us.
#15 Michael Weatherly — NCIS
Sometimes, you need a slightly more mature (but still hot, of course) man.
#14 Eion Bailey — Once Upon a Time
Assuming that this guy isn’t really made of wood now, the official hot guy of fairytale land might make the ladies’ dreams come true.
#13 Max Greenfield — New Girl
Do you honestly think Schmidt would miss a chance to strip for the ladies?
#12 Wilson Bethel — Hart of Dixie
Thanks to the warm temperatures of the deep south, audiences have had a full season’s preview of what Wilson Bethel would treat us to as a stripper.
#11 Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan and Daniel Dae Kim — Hawaii Five-0
Taking their shirts off is what these guys do best (other than shooting bad guys, of course).
#10 Michael Grant Terry — Bones
What wonders could be hiding under those lab coats?
#9 Stephen Amell — Arrow
Audiences have yet to fully ogle the beautiful abs sported by Oliver Queen but shouldn’t there be a little preview?
#8 Neil Patrick Harris — How I Met Your Mother
Barney Stinson would never want to deprive us of stripping joy.
#7 Niall Matter — Eureka
Some women like both brains and brawn. This guy plays both convincingly on Eureka, and he could definitely do the same on the big screen.
#6 Shane West — Nikita
If your fantasies involve a hot man who could kill your enemies in seconds, could you do any better?
#5 Christopher Gorham — Covert Affairs
Hot guys in the CIA are attractive and they know all of your secrets.
#4 Aziz Ansari — Parks and Recreation
Maybe he’s not the sexiest man on television, but he would definitely have the most enthusiasm.
#3 Ed Westwick — Gossip Girl
They only have hot guys on Gossip Girl. Chuck Bass just seems like the one most willing to take his clothes off.
#2 LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell — NCIS: Los Angeles
As long as you don’t like hairy men, these are your go-to guys for hotness.
#1 Matthew Bomer — White Collar
Well yes, he is in the current Magic Mike. But he’s so pretty that we figure Matt Bomer should be the continuity that carries us through to the sequel.
