James Marsden Turned Down Stripper Role In ‘Magic Mike’ Due To ‘Lack Of Courage’

Say it isn’t so! During an appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” James Marsden revealed the reason why he passed on a role to strip down in the 2012 hit movie “Magic Mike” starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey. “I had the fear that I would be edited out of the movie,” he admitted. “Just all my lines would be cut out and I’d be an extra just rushing around in a G-string.” Despite the missed opportunity, the actor has landed plenty of successful projects in his career, including “Westworld,” “Dead to Me” and Disney’s “Enchanted.”
