Despite what you might have thought, Channing Tatum is good at more than having a chiseled jaw and staring off into the middle distance. He can also work it like a 9-to-5, which he did on the set of his upcoming stripper film Magic Mike, much to the amazement of his colleagues. “Oh, Channing, by far. He’s like on another level. Obviously, he’s got more experience,” Tatum’s co-star Joe Manganiello told New York when asked which Magic actor had the best moves. As for his own booty-popping skills, the True Blood actor admitted, “I wouldn’t call myself a professional dancer, but I will say that when I got back to my trailer and shook my clothes off, there were some one-dollar bills that fell out.” We can only assume Channing taught Joe everything he knows. He was probably the greased-up sexy Yoda to Manganiello’s spastically gyrating Luke Skywalker.
Also willing to throw down for Tatum’s sexy dancing skills is his wife of two years, actress Jenna Dewan. “I didn’t show him any routines, but I would definitely watch his and give my critiques and suggestions,” The Playboy Club actress said of her man’s abilities. Jenna added, “He’s amazing. He’s a great stripper! I should ask for more [private dances].” If the Academy really wants to draw in young viewers to the Oscars, they know what new category they need to add next year. And who would win it.
