Channing Tatum 'stripping totally legit'

Channing Tatum and his Magic Mike castmates "look pretty good" stripping.

The hunky actor stars alongside Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello in the exotic dancing comedy.

Channing portrays Magic Mike, a young stripper who is grappling with establishing a long-term romance and pursuing his dream to design furniture.

According to New York City based male stripper Steve Stanulis, whose stage name is Steve Savage, the actors performed well.

"The bachelorette party, the whole thing is totally legit," Steve told MTV News.

"I mean, with the guys coming in as cops and the girls, like, getting all nervous. So, that's pretty authentic. It looks pretty good."

Channing and Matthew dance shirtless in several scenes throughout the film.

Steve can imagine them performing in strip clubs easily.

"The show looks pretty good, the guys dancing and the whole shtick with each guy coming out with a different routine," he said. "They're a little overly elaborate, with all the smoke and spinning, but again that's not something you would really see. I mean we're not going to see Fosse. I mean, they did a great job. All the guys look great as well. They're totally believable as dancers."

Magic Mike will be released in the US June 29.
