What started as a joke is now REALLY HAPPENINGMichael Strahan will be playing a STRIPPER in the upcoming “Magic Mike” sequel (“Magic Mike XXL”) set for release July 2015.

It actually started as a joke back when Channing Tatum came on “Live With Kelly And Michael” to promote the first movie, and Strahan jokingly re-enacted a strip scene from the movie. And after that, it became a running joke where Channing would plead with him to join the next movie.

But now, it’s really happening.

However, according to TMZ, the NFL Hall of Famer will “definitely be topless” in the movie, but “anything below the waist is still being discussed.”

But even if Strahan agrees to a G-string, you won’t see his man junk — as one production source puts it, “It’s rated R, not X. No full frontal.”

So sorry ladies, I guess you won’t get to see his uhmmm… “Little Strahan” but who’s complaining?

I mean, they had to have named the sequel XXL for a reason, right?
