Matt Bomer, who will be appearing in the upcoming film Magic Mike XXL, revealed on Late Night with Seth Meyers that he will be singing and stripping in the movie. In a scene where his character, Ken, serenades a group of Southern women, Bomer strips and sings Bryan Adams’ ballad “Heaven” to cheer one of the women up.
Bomer explained that the idea for him to sing in the movie came from his co-star, Joe Manganiello. Bomer admitted that he found it daunting to have to strip and sing in front of strangers but said that taking his clothes off at the same time as singing made it easier. When asked if Bomer and Manganiello had any weird acting assignments at college, Bomer recounted a character he created - a heroin-addicted peacock that worked at a tanning salon. Magic Mike XXL will be released in cinemas on July 1.
