Audiences flocked to see Rough Night in theaters. The film features Hollywood A-listers Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon and Ilana Glazer. Although Rough Night‘s leading ladies are hilarious, everyone’s talking about the dead stripper, Ryan Cooper. In the movie, the 31-year-old model turned actor played a male stripper who happens to kick the bucket.
Cooper was born in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea to a missionary family. After high-school in Auckland New Zealand, he worked as a carpenter. In 2008, Cooper found fame after landing a DKNY Jeans campaign with Namibian model Bahati Prinsloo.
Although everyone’s seen Cooper’s barely-covered body, we were pleasantly surprised by one of the film’s deleted scenes. Apparently, he went full-frontal.
In the movie, Cooper performs an arousing striptease. While the theatrical version keeps this scene R-rated, in the unrated cut of the film, Cooper flaunts his flesh flute for all to see.
In an interview with the blog Too Fab, Cooper opened up about his experience shooting Rough Night.
“I had big dreams to play a stripper, I did, and I think that’s what I would tell the kids — and my kid — that dream big. Dreams do come true,” Cooper said. “If you wanna be a stripper, put it out there, and it could happen to you. So no matter what you wanna be — if you wanna be a dog walker, put it out there. You can do it.”
When asked how he prepared for the role, Cooper revealed his secrets. “I had seen Magic Mike 33 and a half times, so obviously, I watched that again. I did watch some YouTube videos, and I did take some dance lessons, and I ended up having a little bit of a routine ready to go, but I was asked to tone it down for the plot twist to make it make a little more sense. She said, ‘Just do as you had … the awkward dancing in the audition.’”
In addition to flashing his junk, Cooper also has the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make out with McKinnon on the beach.
“Well, if me passively lying there while she goes nuts on my face is classified as making out, yes,” Ryan joked. “I had crabs coming out of the sand biting my back and Kate on top of me whispering and tickling me. It was very, very hard to remain composed.”
Cooper wasn’t the only nearly naked stud on the Rough Night set. Colton Haynes, who recently shared a nude photo on Instagram, showed a lot of skin for the flick.
