    Michael Strahan Among Latest Drafted for Stripper Sequel 'Magic Mike XXL'

    Michael Strahan has won over the morning masses as Kelly Ripa’s talk show co-host on Live! And now the former Giants great is adding another line to his résumé: scantily-clad movie star. The NFL Hall of Famer announced this morning on Live! With Kelly and Michael that he will be making an appearance in the upcoming sequel Magic Mike XXL — apparently as one of star Channing Tatum’s fellow strippers. The surprising casting comes after repeat appearances by Tatum on the show where he (presumably jokingly) asked Strahan if he’d appear in the sequel to the 2012 hit.

    Oscar Buzz Erupts at Cannes for Steve Carell and 'Foxcatcher'

    The film that was last year’s Oscar race reject took a sharp turn toward awards season glory on Monday night at the Cannes Film Festival  in the south of France. Based on the true story of mentally disturbed millionaire heir—and killer—John E. du Pont, Foxcatcher got a round of jubilant applause and shouts of approval from international press members who screened the film on Monday ahead of the film's gala premiere.  "Steve Carell is an Oscar lock," wrote Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh, who compares the 51-year-old actor’s onscreen transformation to Jared Leto’s Oscar-winning turn as a transgender woman in Dallas Buyers Club, using in this case a ”prosthetic nose (a la Nicole Kidman in The Hours), false teeth, and a receding hairline.”  Setoodeh also notes that Sony Pictures Classics hasn’t decided yet whether to submit the 51-year-old actor’s name in the lead or supporting Oscar categories.  Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter shared the sentiment, saying his take on du Pont—who killed Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz in 1996—is a career changer for Carell.
