The 36-year-old will work as a singer, dancer and host in the Las Vegas production for three weeks in June.
In a statement to The Associated Press on Thursday, Lawrence said screening Channing Tatum's upcoming film about being a stripper — "Magic Mike" — encouraged him to join the male revue.
Says Lawrence: "I found out that guys like Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem have also done stuff like this and being the fearless guy that I am, I said yes."
