There's no denying the "McConaissance", a dauntless second act in Matthew McConaughey's life, which - with performances in the likes of True Detective, Dallas Buyers Club, The Wolf of Wall Street and Christopher Nolan's upcoming Interstellar - we've been all too happy to make room for.

Unfortunately for Magic Mike fans, however, McConaughey's new oddball intensity and his desire to make interesting choices again after a previous acting career which relied mainly on his six pack and Southern drawl, means that the actor and his chest might not be returning to the sequel, Magic Mike XXL.

At least that's what we're hearing from Gabriel Iglesias - who starred alongside McConaughey in the Steven Soderbergh-directed male strip flick and spoke to Dish Nation recently, revealing this:

The nerve, indeed! Somebody at Warner Bros. needs to stuff a few more dollar bills into McConaughey's thong. Pronto.


Do you want Matthew McConaughey back in Magic Mike XXL?
