Joe Manganiello has revealed that since directing and producing a reality film about one of the world's most popular male strip clubs, he's been thinking of ideas for new stripteases for 'Magic Mike XXL'

Joe Manganiello has been thinking up new stripping routines for 'Magic Mike XXL'.

The 'True Blood' star claims he's already preparing to reprise his role as "Big D**k Richie" in the upcoming sequel and thinks the knowledge he's gained from directing and producing reality film 'La Bare' has helped him to think of new ideas.

Speaking about his involvement in the film, which goes behind the scenes of one the world's most popular male strip clubs, he said: "I did have my producer/director hat on for the past year and a half with 'La Bare'.

"At some point during the summer, I'm going to have to get back into it [his character]. I'm starting to think about new routines."

The 37-year-old hunk claimed 'Magic Mike XXL' director Greg Jacobs and writer Channing Tatum - who also stars in the movie, based on his life as a stripper before becoming a successful actor - have asked for his advice.

He told Latino Review: "They certainly asked for my help and my input now. Certainly, now I'm a male entertainment expert.

"I have a wealth of information. I definitely will have more of an input on what my character gets to do on this one. It'll be a lot of fun and it'll be great."
