Ellen’s Shirtless Gardener Returns For A Legit “Magic Mike” Audition

Screen Shot 2014-09-25 at 3.06.01 PMEllen heard the great news that Matthew McConaughey won’t be participating in the hotly anticipated upcoming Magic Mike sequel, so she’s doing her best to fill his former role for Warner Bros. President Greg Silverman.

This week, she invited her beloved gardener Nick back to set for an exclusive audition because, let’s face it, this man needs to be paid to take his clothes off and wiggle his bulge in something that’ll be available on DVD next year.

Nick, as you know, is actually Billy Reilich from The Cream Pies. He is also gorgeous.

Watch Ellen pull some strings to get Nick an audition below, and cross your fingers that it works in his favor!
