Crystal Hunt is a blessed woman. Surrounded by a pack of beefy male strippers, the Emmy-nominated actress who starred in two iconic daytime soaps has a role to die for. Working with the likes of Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodrigues, Joe Maginella, and Kevin Nash is every woman’s dream.
Hunt, as most know, is best known for her roles as the troubled teen, Lizzie Spaulding, in the popular CBS soap Guiding Light, and that of a Vegas stripper, Stacy Morasco on ABC’s One Life to Live. She began her acting career as a young girl acting in pageants. Performances in commercials soon followed, the opportunities to work regularly in two beloved soap serials ensued, and now the big screen has called. Her IMDB is looking pretty stacked with credits.
Her role as Lauren is a relatively small one, but Hunt held her own as she worked not just with great male stars, but also with veteran female stars like Jada Pinkett-Smith and Andie MacDowell. Check out Crystal’s Instagram for more information.
Magic Mike XXL is an engaging and entertaining film. It’s about the antics of a group of working class “stiffs” who though successful want once more to bask in the limelight of a career that three years ago brought them the worship and adulation of lots of women. The Tampa Kings as they are called take a road trip of sorts that carries them from Florida to Georgia and then Myrtle Beach where they will participate in an exotic male stripper convention. The buddy movie follows this group of testosterone filled retired male strippers who want one final chance to show what they are working with while it still works, and while they are still youthful, buffed, and bronzed. The fact that their mentor and friend, the legendary Magic Mike played by Matthew McConaughey in the first film, is the show’s headliner is an added incentive to make it to Myrtle Beach and show off their new moves.
Magic Mike XXL is filled with hints of possible sexual dalliances. Even though the dance moves and themes are loaded with sexual innuendoes, no onscreen sexual acts occur.
Magic Mike XXL is full of eye-candy that pleases. The gyrating soundtrack, the excellently choreographed dances will make you hold your breathe and wait to exhale. Watching the Kings do their thing emphatically proves that, yes “there is still some magic in this Mike.”
