Miami got a little hotter Wednesday when the smoking cast of the upcoming male stripper sequel Magic Mike XXL came out to Bayside Marketplace to be honored on the so called Miami Walk of Fame.
City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado first brought Adam Rodriguez up to the stage, thanking him for doing his part to promote the Magic City as a former star of CSI: Miami.
Even though the show was actually filmed in Los Angeles, many of the scenes were shot here.
“Thank you so much,” said Rodriguez. “Any excuse to come back to this beautiful town I take it.”
Next up: Magic Mike himself Channing Tatum, who did a cute little dance and told the screaming crowd that he used to live on 13th and Collins for a while back in his modeling days.
Jada Pinkett Smith was also given props by Regalado, thanks in part to her hubby Will Smith’s 1997 song, “Welcome to Miami.” Pinkett Smith, who was not in the first MM, looked adorable and — amazingly cool — in a strapless, white flouncy dress. Also in attendance were Matt Bomer, Joe Mangianello and Gabriel Iglesias, aka Fluffy.
A few hours later, some of the guys headed over to Regal South Beach for a VIP screening. Tatum danced around the theater and introduced the flick that comes out July 1.
