Joe Manganiello Talks Differences Between 'Magic Mike' And 'Magic Mike XXL'; Channing Tatum Reportedly Learned How To 'Dougie' At The Sequel's Wrap Up Party

Joe Manganiello, who reprises his role as Big Dick Richie in "Magic Mike XXL," said that the sequel is a "bigger rush" than the original film.

Manganiello and his co-stars Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Matt Bomer, among many others, shot their stripping scenes for the 2012 film in front of 200 shrieking female extras on set, but that crowd was too small compared to the audience they had for the second installment.

"This time, there were 900 during our dance scene, so it was a bigger rush," the 37-year-old "True Blood" actor told People Thursday, Nov. 6, at the launch of the MB Chronowing smart watch at Soho House West Hollywood. "The sound of 900 screaming women is literally deafening. My ears were ringing for days after I did my final routine."

At the same event, Manganiello told E! News that "Magic Mike XXL" is going to be different from the original "Magic Mike" because it has a distinct vibe.

Sofia Vergara's boyfriend explained that while the first film "was more about the romance...and had more of an art house feel, this one is more of a '70s road trip movie, like 'Easy Rider.' 'Animal House,'  when they went out on the road."

Filming of the sequel was completed in Savannah, Ga., earlier this month, according to People.

And during the "Magic Mike XXL" wrap party last week at the oceanfront 8th Ave Tiki Bar & Grill in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Tatum reportedly got wild on the dance floor.

"Channing was the ring leader on the floor," an insider told Us Weekly. "He was whistling, putting his arms up in the air, and waving people on when they started to dance."

At one point during the party, the 34-year-old "22 Jump Street" actor was taught how to "Dougie" by a staff member, added the source. He also danced along to Ginuwine's sensual hit "Pony," which is actually the hunky actor's song in "Magic Mike."

"Everyone was cheering him on," the tipster continued. "He was teasing some strip moves, but he wasn't actually stripping -- much to the ladies' disappointment of course."

"Magic Mike XXL" hits theaters in July 2015.
