"Dude, I’m just trying to get in the next Magic Mike," Kravitz jokes to Tatum, who's reportedly dating Lenny's daughter Zoe.

When Lenny Kravitz posted a photo of his enviable abs on Wednesday (Sept. 29), Channing Tatum -- someone who knows a little something about six-packs -- was clearly impressed.

"Good god man!" the actor commented on the Instagram pic of an open-shirted Kravitz. "What are you eating or what’s in the water or the genes. It’s not natural. Do you just do abs like all day?"

The 57-year-old rock star had the perfect response for the Magic Mike star/producer. "Dude, I’m just trying to get in the next Magic Mike. Any connections?"

The original 2012 film -- which also spawned the 2015 sequel Magic Mike XXL -- was based in part on Tatum's experiences as an 18-year-old stripper in Tampa, Fla.

The possibility of Kravitz starring in a Magic Mike threequel has been a running joke between him and his daughter, Zoe Kravitz -- who just so happens to be reportedly dating Tatum at the moment. When Kravitz posted a similarly revealing photo back in July, Zoe commented, "you auditioning for MM3?" Lenny replied: "I've been ready!" Tatum even chimed in on the July post, writing, "Will be calling you shortly to get into your schedule my friend."

Kravitz broke through as a musician in the '90s, racking up No. 1 Mainstream Rock Airplay hits like "Are You Gonna Go My Way?" and "Fly Away" and winning four consecutive Grammy Awards for best male rock vocal performance (1998-2001). He has since established his acting career, including his role as Cinna in the Hunger Games films, so he could make a perfect fit if Tatum gets the stripper crew back together.
