Adam Rodriguez and Wendi McLendon-Covey Join MAGIC MIKE; Rodriguez Also Lands Small Role in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

     September 8, 2011


Roles in Steven Soderbergh’s stripper comedy Magic Mike continue to evaporate as both Adam Rodriguez (CSI: Miami) and Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids) have joined the film. The pair join a cast that already includes Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Olivia Munn and Matt Bomer. For those unaware, Magic Mike is a semi-autobiographical tale about Tatum’s early days as a male stripper.

As you may expect, Rodriguez will play one of said male strippers in the pic. Additionally, Deadline reports that the actor has also landed a small and unspecified role in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. As for McLendon-Covey, THR broke the news of her casting but fails to mention any details regarding her role. The Reno 911! veteran also has a role alongside Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick, Jennifer Lopez and Dennis Quaid in the romantic comedy What to Expect When You’re Expecting which is due out on May 11th, 2012.
