Two Words: Channing Tatum


In honor of a fucked up dream I had on Saturday night, I figured it's time to write my first entry (I don't know why it's taken me this long) about Mr. Channing Tatum. I've only see him in Step Up so far (I'm waiting for my schedule to clear so I can catch She's the Man and A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints), but that was more than enough to prove to me what a good actor Channing could become. I'm not saying that Step Up is a good movie (it's a complete rip-off of Save the Last Dance which isn't even that great to begin with) or that Channing's character is original in anyway. Channing just has a natural charisma that comes across strongly on the camera. With the right director, Channing could deliver a staggering performance (maybe that will happen this fall when he stars in both Stop Loss and Battle in Seattle). And with the right kind of role, he could be as adored and clamored for as Jake Gyllenhaal is right now (and he doesn't really have to make out with a man...maybe he could just do a movie with Liza Minnelli or something). Needless to say, it takes a pretty interesting actor/man to get me to want see a movie as bad-looking as She's the Man and Channing is definitely that.

You should definitely watch She's the Man and AGTRYS, because they are both really awesome movies for really different reasons. She's the Man is HLARIOUS and AGTRYS is gritty. Channing is awesome in both movies.

He really is great in AGTRYS. Surprisingly so.

I was concerned that all of the talk around his performance was just hype. Once I saw the movie, I realized that all of the hype was disserved. I can't wait to him in his next movies (Stop-Loss, Battle in Seattle, Parkour, Dear John).
