Gabriel Iglesias, known by his fans as be “the fluffy guy,” has just joined the cast of Steven Soderbergh’s “Magic Mike,” a film based on actor Channing Tatum’s (also in the movie) experience as a male stripper when he was 19.
Iglesias will be the movie’s music man, playing the friend and DJ at the strip club.
The comedian known for his lack of vulgarity as well as his size, is currently the top comedy touring act, having sold more than 122,000 tickets in 70 cities for his Fluffy Shop Tour.
Iglesias is just the latest added to the ever growing “Magic Mike” cast, joining Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Cody Horn (daughter of Warner Bros.’s COO) and Joe Manganiello.
Soderbergh’s movie follows the cast throughout a summer at the strip club. Tatum’s character is tasked with teaching the new guy (Pettyfer) the ways of the groove.
