If Channing Tatum is looking for a greed-driven foil in Magic Mike XXL, he’s going to have to look beyond Matthew McConaughey.

Magic Mike XXL Director Greg Jacobs revealed in an interview that the Oscar-winning actor has hung up his assless chaps and will not be appearing in the sequel. While this is certainly a bummer, fans of scantily-clad man candy will be relieved to know that Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello will be back in all their stripping glory.

To every cloud, there is a silver, easily tearable lining.
