Trace Lysette Talks Working at an NYC Strip Club and How She Landed a Role in 'Hustlers'


The blockbuster film Hustlers follows the real-life events (chronicled in Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine piece, The Hustlers at Score) of a group of New York City strippers banding together to scam their wealthy Wall Street patrons. After the crash of the stock market in 2008, the girls are forced to find other means to make their money, which don’t include just solely dancing on a pole.  

The A-list film stars Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Cardi B, and Lili Reinhart… just to name a few. Another standout character in the movie is Tracey, who is working in the club against her boyfriend’s wishes. Actress Trace Lysette opens up about how she landed the role and working as a dancer.
