Wendi McLendon-Covey Falls For 'Magic Mike'
There's now officially another female in the world of male strippers.
The "Reno 911!" actress, who made quite a splash this summer as the cynical Rita in "Bridesmaids," joins Olivia Munn, Cody Horn and Riley Keough as the ladies of the male stripper drama, which follows a veteran exotic dancer (Channing Tatum) as he teaches his young protege (Alex Pettyfer) how to hustle both on and off the stage.
It's unknown what role McLendon-Covey will be playing, though our guess is she might be the wife (or ex-wife) of Matthew McConaughey's character, who owns the strip club where all the excitement takes place. Either that or Alex Pettyfer's mom.
Wendi McLendon-Covey, like many of her "Bridesmaids" co-stars, has been keeping plenty busy since the R-rated comedy scored big at the box office this summer. She's currently filming the comedies "Sleeping Around," "Holiday Road" and "What To Expect When You're Expecting" and is in pre-production on the new television series, "Waffle Hut."
"Magic Mike" is set to commence filming later this month and, given how quickly Soderbergh works, we'll probably be able to watch the boys take their clothes off in theaters sometime in 2012.
