Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello Help Sexy Nick The Gardener Launch His Movie Career

If Billy Reilich, better known as Nick the Gardener, becomes a movie star he has a lot of people to thank, notably Ellen DeGeneres. The talk show host helped secure the often-shirtless young man, who’s no stranger to dropping trou, a small role in Magic Mike XXL, so he repaid her generosity by offering an exclusive behind the scenes peek at the making of the upcoming stripper epic. Stars Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello show up with words of encouragement. It’s all in a day’s work.
