Alex Pettyfer has shown off his impressive abs in Beastly and I Am Number Four -- but will the 21-year-old Brit bare all when he plays a stripper in Magic Mike?

According to Deadline, the young actor has been cast opposite Channing Tatum in the Steven Soderbergh film. Based on Tatum's real-life experiences as an exotic dancer, the film tells the story of an older performer (Tatum) who shows a younger dancer (Pettyfer) the tricks of the trade.
