'Magic Mike' and Other Characters Who Shouldn't Quit Their Day Jobs

By Michael Arbeiter, Hollywood.com Staff

This weekend, Magic Mike braves theaters telling a story of a small-town stripper who just wanted to make tables. Yeah, that's the case at hand. The ab-solutely wonderful Channing Tatum plays an exotic dancer with a passion for creating furniture. And while tables are important — odds are, you're using one of them right now! — this isn't exactly the kind of ""shoot for your dreams"" subplot you'd usually find in a Hollywood film.

But then again, Magic Mike's hero isn't the only movie character with a bizarre secret fantasy. We've compiled a gallery of a few hopeful dreamers whose lifelong ambitions are just a bit of a stray from the usual ""I just gotta dance!"" situation. Check out the pics, and then let us know: what is your strange secret dream?
