Speaking previously about his stripping skills for the movie, Joe told the New York Post: 'I could use it [stripping] as a Plan B. Either that or give it away for free to the right person. That sounds like a lot more fun.'

Meanwhile, Joe is not the only actor in the sequel to get his own racy character posted and recently 37-year-old actor Matt Bomer appeared shirtless and rather incredibly muscled.

Following in the footsteps of earlier posters showing Channing Tatum and others, Matt's toned physique was both impressive and a little surprising.

The black-and-white image showed Matt in the character of Ken, getting ready to tip his fedora to a sure-to-be-appreciative audience.

While Matt was shirtless, he did wear a pair of tight denim jeans slung low enough to reveal the tops of the actor's underwear.

Matt's eight-pack abs, however, were the focus of the poster for the Magic Mike sequel.

Mostly a TV actor before 2012's Magic Mike, Matt has typically played more cerebral action heroes - who kept their clothes on - in shows like White Collar and Chuck.

A Twitter post by the Magic Mike XXL movie account first released the image with the caption: 'Our Ken doll is back (@MattBomer), and this time he's XXL. Who's ready for him?'

The poster of Matt was one of several already released by Magic Mike XXL as part of an incredibly intelligent marketing scheme. Star Channing Tatum featured in the first poster released, while Adam Rodriguez and Stephen 'tWitch' Boss soon followed.

All of the men revealed well-muscled torsos while posing topless.

The sequel to the hit movie about male strippers picks up the story three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, 

Magic Mike XXL finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them. 

On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.

Magic Mike XXL will be released in the UK on July 3 and North America on July 1.
