Yes, we're excited for "The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Amazing Spider-Man." But if you ask us (and you just did – no, really, we heard you), the movie that's going to make our summer special is "Magic Mike." It's not only meat-packed with some of the best-looking men working in Hollywood today, but it's based on Channing Tatum's life. Everything you see on-screen was inspired by actual events, which makes it all that much more tantalizing.
Plus, it's just fun. A lot of summer films offer shirtless dudes, but how many have based an entire movie around their ability to look good shirtless, pantless and dancing? Zero. Mark our words, "Magic Mike" is gonna be huge. And after it blows away the box office, you know what the studio will be thinking: Sequel! We've known we wanted a "Magic Mike 2" ever since the trailer came out.
So, to give the studio a head start, here's eight guys we'd like to see take it all off for a twenty in "Magic Mike 2." Get More »
When we nominated 10 up-and-comers in our TV Stars We Wanna See Become Movie Stars poll, we weren't expecting the deluge of support from fans of "Supernatural" star Jared Padalecki. But after talking to Padalecki -- the winner of the poll with a remarkable 51 percent of the votes -- we realize that... maybe we should have.
"I guess the reason so many people voted is because 'Supernatural' has such a rabid following," Padalecki explains. "They're really supportive of me. I wouldn't have that following if it weren't for 'Supernatural.'"
"Thanks a million," he tells fans. "That makes me feel really good, really flattered. I don't know what to say, that's huge. Really cool."
In honor of the big win, NextMovie talked to Padalecki about his Hollywood plans and more.
After 10 days and nearly 350,000 votes, we can finally declare a winner of our TV Stars We Wanna See Become Movie Stars poll.
You really want to see "Supernatural" star Jared Padalecki become the next big thing to hit the silver screen. Really, alot. Which is especially cool since we landed an interview with the big winner so he could thank each and every one of you.
Padalecki, who has played demon hunter Sam Winchester on the hit CW series for the past six years, edged out second place finisher Yvonne Strahovski (super-spy Sarah Walker on NBC's "Chuck") for the title. The two combined to dominate the voting, between them earning over 91-percent of all votes cast. Get More »
In recent years, movie stars have begun migrating to television, taking over shows like "Damages" (Glenn Close), "Nikita" (Shane West and Maggie Q) and "CSI" (Lawrence Fishburne). Which is cool, but their absence means there's a gap in the movie world that someone needs to fill.
Well, turnabout is fair play.
Here's the deal: we've come up with a list of the 10 up-and-coming young television actors that we'd love to see become movie superstars. Your job is to review their qualifications and let us know via our amazing internet polling capabilities which of them you most want to see on the big screen. Get More »
