Meet Reid Carolin:
As if starring classic-Texas-handsome Matthew McConaughey, green-eyed-ball-of-gyrating-muscle Channing Tatum, giant-Gaston-esque Joe Manganiello, I-have-a-perfect-smile Adam Rodriguez and more-beautiful-than-Kiera-Knightley Matthew Bomer wasn’t enough, Magic Mike also has a handsome screenwriter. (So handsome it’s easy to assume he’s part of the cast.)
This blue-eyed Harvard-grad has not only composed additional music for The Vow (for which we are eternally grateful) and served as Associate Producer on Stop-Loss, he’s also used his powers for good; writing and producing Earth Made of Glass, a Peabody-winning documentary about the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
We at FYMM firmly believe that Mr. Carolin should be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Primarily because the script for Magic Mike is so very wonderful, but also because his nomination would markedly raise the handsomeness of that pool of nominees.
Now it turns out that he is working on Magic Mike: The Musical (an idea we have been feverishly discussing the possibility of since we learned about this movie.) The real question on our minds is, will Reid Carolin ever stop giving?
