If this whole TV thing doesn’t pan out, Michael Strahan may have a future on stage – the strip-club stage, that is!

The former NFL star and Kelly Ripa‘s new co-host on Live! makes his most exciting career move yet in this behind-the-scenes video from his photo shoot for PEOPLE’s 2012 Sexiest Man Alive issue.

“I’m a construction worker – a plumber – whatever you want to call me, I’ll fix your pipes. That’s what I’m here for,” Strahan, 40, says of the Magic Mike-themed shoot. “To be included in the Sexiest Man [Alive] issue is incredible. … I look at it as an honor.”

And he’s got the moves! “I’m an excellent dancer,” he says. “I keep up with whatever’s hot. I’ve been break-dancing and pop-locking since back in the day. [I do] the robot … you can do the Dougie and all the new stuff. I try to keep up with everybody and what’s going on. I don’t have any special moves, I just try to keep up with the times.”

Strahan isn’t the only Mike showing off his magical powers of sex appeal in PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive issue, which stars cover guy Channing Tatum. Michael Bublé (cowboy), Michael Weatherly (naval officer), Michael Ealy (firefighter) and Michael Bolton (army soldier) also show off their best stripper moves.
