.Magic Mike which is out on Blu/DVD tomorrow, we held a lil' contest last week, wherein we randomly chose a winner from the likes of you-all who answered a question I put forth, namely for you-all to name five names that you would cast in the sequel. And I got way more emails for this contest than I have for any other, proving once and for all that I have an audience that likes to look at men in states of undress. (Shocker.) Anyway thanks to everybody for the replies, but we have a winner - congratulations Ty! - whose choices were an eclectically delicious bunch.
"This was a challenging hypothetical. If you'd have asked tomorrow it would probably be different. Thinking about it now I've come up with Takeshi Kaneshiro, Charlie Hunnam, Dominic Cooper, Skylar Astin, and Paul Schneider. Siiiigh, if only."
If only, indeed. Indeed there was so much "if only" going on as I read through your emails I knew I had to do something with them. So how's about a poll? I counted up all of your picks. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's junk-thrusting performance on SNL was obviously fresh in everybody's minds, because he walked away with the top spot handily. Next up came the Chris contingent of The Avengers to round out the top three.

* I can make no such promise.
