Jada Pinkett Smith will soon be surrounded by a bunch of naked men. The Gotham actress revealed on a recent visit to Queen Latifah's talk show that she's joining the cast of Magic Mike XXL. Magic Mike XXL is the long-awaited sequel to the blockbuster hit starring Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer.
Although the 43-year-old actress didn't say exactly what her role will be, she did say that she won't be dancing as a man.
"No, not one of those men," she told Queen Latifah. "I can't really reveal it yet, but I'm very excited about it. It's been a lot of fun."
Pinkett Smith also says that she will feel right at home when it comes to being surrounded by beefcake men because she has Will Smith at home.
"You've got to know I'm used to being around beefcake like that because you know who I live with," she said.
"I'm used to that kind of beefcake-ness in my environment," she added. "I can handle it. They know. I don't have to say anything!"
In addition to Pinkett Smith's new role in Magic Mike XXL, her new Fox series, Gotham, premiered Monday. The series, which is based on DC Comics' Detective James Gordon and Bruce Wayne, follows Gordon's early days on the Gotham City police force. The series will include not only Bruce Wayne's story but also the origin stories of the Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman, Joker, Poison Ivy, Scarecrow, Hugo Strange, Harvey Dent and Mr. Freeze.
Gotham was a social media hit and trended for most of the night:
Magic Mike XXL is set to hit theaters July 1, 2015, and Gotham airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
