The countdown until the Magic Mike 2 premiere is on, as legions of fans of the original smash hit movie keep Channing all over their Tatums in anticipation.

Most Magic Mike fans know this was the semi-autobiographical story of Channing Tatum's days as a stripper. Well, he was far alone in that line of work:

Channing Tatum
"Magic Mike" wasn't the loosely autobiographical story of Channing Tatum for nothing! He got his start as a stripper.

No, Tatum's pole-dancing past isn't unique. Stripping is one way many of today's famous faces got their start, paying their bills prior to achieving fame.

Some of them went on to become Hollywood A-listers, and some of them went on to be, well, sort of crazy people who are famous for no discernible reason. 

Check out 21 stars who used to be strippers above and see who falls into which category. Some of these former dancers may really surprise you, too.

And then there are stars who took it to another level. Yes, the celebrities who used to be porn stars ... those are surprising for even more obvious reasons:

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was arrested at his family's tanning salon in Middletown, N.J., Tuesday. He was charged with simple assault after a fight.

About 2 p.m., police responded to calls reporting an altercation involving Situation at Boca Tanning Club, Middletown Police Det. Lt. Stephen Dollinger said. 

The former MTV reality star has posted $500 bail and was released. TMZ reports that the fight was between Sorrentino and his brother Frank.

Mike also has a sweet black eye now. Looks like he lost.

Dollinger said he could not confirm who was involved in the fight, but E! News says a Twitter feud between the pair escalated quickly Tuesday afternoon.

Mike Sorrentino allegedly went to the salon to tell his brother that he was fired, setting off a skirmish, which was not the first eyebrow-raising event there.

On June 2, five employees at the salon filed police reports claiming their paychecks bounced. According to cops, each employee was owed between $100-200.

Of all the former Jersey Shore cast members, few have struggled with life post-MTV as much as Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

The six-packed, self-proclaimed "guido" happily took on the villain role on the popular reality series but found that by the end of the show's run, viewers and castmates alike had grown tired of his antics.

As the pressure of fame and playing the bad guy increased, The Situation fought addiction, did a stint and rehab and looked like he'd been permanently relegated to the "Where are they now?" file.

Now, it appears The Sitch will get a second shot at stardom as the TVGN network announced today that they've cast Mike and his family in a new unscripted series titled The Sorrentinos.

Jersey Shore star The Situation the target of a federal criminal investigation regarding his cash flow and business dealings, according to a new report.

Under scrutiny are Mike Sorrentino and his companies MPS Entertainment, Situation Productions, GTL Management (seriously) and Situation Nation.

Say WHAT Yo?

Why Sitch has four companies, who can say. But we're guessing they're not reporting / paying taxes on his income (our guess) according to the law.

The exact nature of the crime(s) he is suspected of (or a Person of Interest in) is unclear, but TMZ says it's a felony, and that it's all finance related.

Could he have been getting it in ... the wrong bank accounts?

Subpoenas have been issued to Mike's associates, asking for copies of payments issued to him, copies of checks, any communications, and more.

And we thought Pauly D was having a rough go of it lately. Amanda Markert and her custody drama pale in comparison to the FBI on the problem scale.

The Situation's rep has not commented on the ... situation.

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino says his addiction to painkillers and subsequent rehab stay dates back to his short-lived stint on Dancing With the Stars.

That was 2010, and he says he's still battling to stay sober.

Say WHAT Yo?

While his people initially insisted the MTV star was just suffering from exhaustion, Sitch eventually confirmed he was hooked on opiates back in 2012.

Now, the 32-year-old is talking about his battle with prescription drugs and how his addiction was so bad, he could barely dress himself at his worst.

"All I had to do was get dressed for a family function and I couldn’t do that. The shirt was laid out, the belt, the pants, everything. The shower was on."

The United States of America turns 237 years old this July 4. That's quite the milestone, and one for which we should all be grateful as we celebrate today.

A few other notables also share birthdays with the US of A, including ...

Malia Obama, now 15. The eldest daughter of President Barack Obama, the first African-American to lead our country, she represents the American dream.

So, too, does The Situation, a man solely famous for ... who knows anymore. Jersey Shore is a thing of the past, which is probably for the best.

You have to hand it to anyone who can turn big muscles, even bigger tolerance for alcohol and a uniquely absurd vocabulary into a career, though.

Only in America. And celebrating a birthday July 4. Along with ...

Call it a desperate plea for human salvation.

Just two hours before December 21, the day that marks the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar, MTV pulled the plug on Jersey Shore for good.

Last-minute peace offering to the gods?

Jersey Shore Season 6 Cast Picture

We'll find out, won't we?! Yeah buddy. For now, let's break down the grand finale Jersey Shore in all its fist-pumping, STD-ridden, GTL'd glory ... THG style!

Like the season as a whole, it was relatively uneventful, but Situation, Snooki, Pauly D, Sammi, Ronnie, Vinny, Deena and JWoww went out in style.

A bonfire on the beach required some hard wood courtesy of Vinny, and not the kind he's used to displaying whenever Snooki is around. Plus 20.

Jersey Shore is really limping toward its December 20 finish line at this point.

Even its most loyal devotees will concede this; it's run out of ... something.

Let's break down the penultimate episode and The Situation's strip show:

The Situation's stripper name, Vito Dorado, was pretty much the highlight.

Somehow the others convince Mike to show us his moves, which he used to do for money before he became a reality star ... and wow. Just wow. Minus 50.

JWoww really takes one for the team in this case. Poor, poor thing. Plus 20.

Earlier this month, Jersey Shore's The Situation sued Devotion Spirits for not fulfilling their end of a contract they signed. Now they're firing back and then some.

Say WHAT Yo?

The protein-infused vodka company (yes, that awesome-sounding concoction is real) has counter-sued, alleging that the reality star is the one who flaked.

Among their alleged reasons for filing a counter-lawsuit against Mike Sorrentino:
