Casting continues to roll in for Steven Soderbergh's stripper pic "Magic Mike" and it looks like the bod-baring film has now found some comic relief.

Comedian Gabriel Iglesias will spin some tunes as the DJ in at the exotic club Xquisite and hang out with dudes in the upcoming film. This will be Iglesias' first major big screen role, but he'll have plenty of support around him with Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Riley Keough and Cody Horn all part of the ensemble for the film. Penned by Reid Carolin, the film will tell the story of an experienced stripper (Tatum) who teaches a younger dancer (Pettyfer) how to hustle his wares on stage at the club run by Dallas (McConaughey).

Production on the low budget film will start in September, and yes, this is based on Tatum's own experiences. TMI?
