As you may recall, Ellen landed Nick—real name is Billy Reilich—a role in MMXXL after he generously removed his shirt for her audience on more than one occasion. He’s a real dreamboat and, even though he’s got biceps the size of a compact car, his humility is his most adorable quality.

Watch Nick meet and hang out with Magic Mike stars Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello, as well as Ellen’s DJ, tWitch (who also appears in the film), in a behind-the-scenes exclusive below:

Matthew Tharrett is a writer, filmmaker, and above all else, a Britney fan. He once shared a milkshake with Selena Gomez.
