The production of ‘Magic Mike XXL’ has officially begun and girls everywhere could not be more excited! Jada Pinket Smith revealed that she has a role in the sequel and it was originally written for a guy — will she be stripping?

Being on set with a bunch of hunks is something that Jada Pinket Smith 43, is completely prepared for! The actress and mom of two confirmed to Queen Latifah that she will be joining Channing Tatum and the rest of the cast for Magic Mike XXL! She also revealed the “dirty” details of her character!

Jada Pinkett Smith’s ‘Magic Mike’ Sequel Role — Will She Be A Stripper?

“Thats a good gig!” Queen Latifah exclaimed. Jada responded, “Yes, you know, Channing and Gregory and Warner Bros. really took a chance. There was a character written for a male that they wanted to turn into a female.”

After Jada’s announcement, Queen Latifah had one question on her mind (as did we).

Being that her character was originally meant for a guy, will she be part of the stripping gang? Possibly filling in for the absent Matthew Mcconaughey?

“Not one of those [characters]!” Jada said, quickly shooting down the thought. “I can’t really reveal it yet, but I’m excited about it.” We are excited too, girl!

Although we are sad to see Matthew Mcconaughey go, we are happy to welcome new cast members Jada and Amber Heard along with alum Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Alex Pettyfer.

That is quite the impressive list of hollywood hunks!

“I’m used to being around beefcake like that because you know who I live with!” Jada joked, in reference to her hubby Will Smith. “I’m used to that kind of beefcake-ness in my environment. I can handle it!”

We can’t wait to run to theaters and watch this super hot film! What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited for Magic Mike XXL?
