Joe Manganiello brings a heaping dose of raw masculinity to a brand new trailer for Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, the Netflix original film resurrecting Paul Reubens’ iconic character by popular demand.
The Magic Mike star will play the macho, motorcycle-riding man who walks into Pee-wee’s life, inspiring him to venture outside Fairville and take a trip to the Big Apple. In one of his finer moments in the trailer below, Manganiello orders a milkshake in the sexiest, most appetizing way possible:
The debut trailer is chock-full of the kind of cartoonish hijinks we’d expect from Pee-wee, as well as a few glimpses of the wild plot the film will follow.
A short description reads: “A fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee Herman to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny.”
Last April, Manganiello described Reubens, who co-wrote the film script along with comedian Paul Rust, as one of his childhood idols.
“Paul Reubens is one of the great comic geniuses of our time,” he said. “Growing up, my Saturday mornings were all about Pee-wee Herman. I saw everything he did. I can’t believe that I’m going to get to share scenes with one of the iconic figures of my childhood.”
Pee-wee’s Big Holiday premieres on Netflix streaming March 18.
