Matthew McConaughey was in talks to reprise his character role of Dallas for the sequel which he played in Magic Mike (2012) but talks fell through because of financial reasons. According to the studio, since winning his Academy Award for Best Actor in Dallas Buyers' Club (2013), McConaughey's pay rate had increased which is a tactical procedure for an actor after he just won an Academy Award to capitalize on his acclaimed success. This led to the studio optioning to pass on bringing McConaughey back for the sequel.
