Alex Pettyfer is keen for the cast of his new film Magic Mike to strip live on Broadway.

The 22-year-old British actor and model stars alongside Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey in Steven Soderbergh's new film about a young man who becomes a male stripper to raise money to achieve his dreams.

Plans are already in place for a Broadway spin-off and Alex told USA Today he would "absolutely" be up for starring in the stage show.

"I think we should all do the opening night", he added.

The film is inspired by Channing's real life past working as a stripper, and he co-produced the movie with screenplay writer Reid Carolin.

Reid said: "We are working on it as a Broadway show, which would be a different story, more of a romp, more of a fun night out at a club with a story. I'm almost more excited about that than the movie because I think it's the perfect thing for women to go see on Broadway, to be participants in the show."

In Time star Alex was keen to show off his raunchy dance moves on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere.

He said: "My favourite move I got to do is a move called The Swipe. It's basically a back flip and you land your hand as you twist in the air and you spin around."

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
