Matthew McConaughey will return for a cameo role in 'Magic Mike XXL', it has been claimed
Matthew McConaughey will have a cameo role in 'Magic Mike XXL'.
The 45-year-old actor was previously confirmed not to be reprising his role as greedy strip club boss Dallas in the forthcoming stripper sequel - which again stars Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer and Joe Managniello - but following fans' disappointment at the news, he is now expected to make a brief appearance in the film, the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column reports.
Director Gregory Jacobs confirmed in September that the 'Lincoln Lawyer' star wouldn't be returning to the film series, explaining the new movie is very different to the 2012 original and will see the stripping stars go out on the road.
He said: "It's a road trip movie and put it this way, it's different enough that once you see it you'll understand why we made a sequel. No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice."
It was previously suggested that McConaughey wouldn't be in the sequel because his fees have soared following his award-winning role in 'Dallas Buyers Club'.
'Magic Mike' star Gabriel Iglesias, who will return as Tobias in the new film, said: "Word has it that Matt's probably not gonna be involved, because he's worth a lot of money now - that whole Oscar thing."
'Magic Mike XXL' is scheduled for release in summer 2015.
