The first time I saw Channing Tatum was on last year's Oscar telecast. He was in a dance number with a woman whose name I have forgotten but I didn't forget him. When I saw him doing the light fantastic (with those incredible buns of his) I thought "WHO IS THAT?" Oh...My...God.
Later I found out he is an actor who appeared in some Chippendales type movie which I haven't seen (yet).
Of course I've heard is name bandied about in the two lying gossip rags that I receive every week (the National Enquirer and the Globe). Unusual name, easy to remember. Cute face. A really CUTE face. But then Brad Whats His Name also had a cute face at one time. Brad, he of the ever changing hairdo and facial hair. You know who I'm talking about, the superstar with the Global Family that they are always carrying from one airport to another. Once I saw Brad Pitt give an interview with such an attitude that any attraction I had to him quickly evaporated by his silent arrogance.
This week I received my latest issue of Vanity Fair. Channing Tatum is on the cover. That is a clear indication that this young man (33 years old I believe) has arrived.
I must say, it is so refreshing to receive an issue of Vanity Fair that doesn't have some old tired retread actor or actress on it. Thank you Vanity Fair.
The article goes on to state that Channing is "an action hero who can act." What a novel approach. He's also one HOT MAN. That helps. Not only me but millions of gay men like me (who have the good taste that I have) and also millions of women (who he is obviously playing too with those pouty lips of his).
I am old enough to remember movie stars who had "IT". Right away I recognized that Channing Tatum has "IT". There have been other actors much ballyhooed like George Clooney and Matthew McConaughey as the "Sexiest Man Alive".
Hey, good actor both but sexy? Hardly? At least from my viewpoint. I just don't see it.
No comparison Pancho. Nada.
And then there is The Brat, Justin Bieber. You know
Oh I've had my Movie Star Crushes before. My latest was Ryan Gosling. That heat is quickly dissipating, sorry to say. Ryan seems to have fallen into the "Do you KNOW who I am trap" plus he's palling around with Eva Mendes or someone one like that.
There was actually someone else that got my embers glowing but I even forget who that was now that I have been totally distracted by the boyish good-looks of Mr. Tatum.
Yep, I think this Channing Tatum has a future.
