This will never happen but A GIRL CAN DREAM, can’t she?
Channing Tatum and George Clooney were doing press for the Coen Brothers movie Hail, Caesar! and Channing revealed a secret wish: he wants costar George Clooney in the next Magic Mike sequel. AND I AGREE.
Not only that, but Channing told E! he wants George to play the role he knows best: himself!
Channing suggested George keep his REAL name as his stripper name because “You can’t really beat [George Clooney].”But George called his bluff when he suggested his stripper name be “Big George”! LOVE IT.
When the interviewer said to try the formula of using your first pet’s name and the name of the street you grew up on, Clooney then amended his name to “Big Boy Fourth Street,” but honestly I still like big George. Check out the interview below to see the rapport between these two actors, which is just going to make you want Magic Mike 3 to happen even harder…
I don’t know what deal with the devil happened that Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum get like, he biggest celebs in the world to come onto their lip sync show, but they DO. And they are BIG. So big that Beyonce herself decided to pay the show a lil visit…
Channing dished to Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday about how he managed to get Queen Bey to join him on stage for a cameo. He explained:
“I won’t even tell you what I had to do to essentially get her assistant’s phone number. I didn’t even have the intention of her coming … I wanted to bring like a cardboard cutout of Beyoncé out, just to be funny, and then ultimately I ended up having to meet Beyoncé doing Beyoncé and that was definitely the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done.”
The two didn’t even meet up to rehearse the bit!
“She’s like Keyser Söze. You know she exists, but you never see her until all of a sudden, you’re just like, ‘It happened, wait that was her, right?'”
Oh, it happened. When Bey graces you with your presence, you KNOW. (Also, please tell us what you had to do to get her assistant’s phone number. Please pretty please? Preferably something with your shirt off?)
Channing Tatum feels that he’s a hard worker and should probably take a break if he’s going to be expected to continue cranking out good movies.
In a new interview, he said, “I’ve been working a lot in the last few years so it might be time to slow things down a little. I love my job but I liken it to a treadmill that you’re always on and you don’t get to enjoy.”
He went on to say, “There was one point where I did four movies back-to-back and you start to question if you gave your all to each of them. I don’t want to get to that place again. I want to spread it around a little. Just step off the treadmill and breathe, which is something I’m looking towards.”
Channing added that when he chooses his film roles, he looks for movies that excite him. He added, “There’s no one direction you can in this industry. You can work towards certain goals and projects, but after that it’s up to fate. It’s down to what excites you because that’s what life is all about, and about my family, how it affects them.”
Take a break, Channing, I’m sure your fans will wait for you!
At a LA press conference for the film, Channing Tatum admitted he was “really intimidated” the first day of filming The Hateful Eight. Which makes sense, as he’s Channing Tatum and the Quentin Tarantino film is like, full of heavy hitting actors who don’t usually take their shirts off in their movies.
“I think on the first day, I must have looked so geeked out because the very first shot was this crazy 360 [degree pan],” Tatum explained. “And I’m just like wide-eyed trying to figure out what not to screw up.”
The epic western brought together many of Tarantino’s usual actors including Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen.
“All these guys work together a lot, and it is a unique experience to be in a Quentin movie, I can promise you,” he continued.
Luckily, costar and Tarantino-veteran Roth was there to offer some encouraging words to the Magic Mike star on Day One.
“And Tim goes, ‘Yep. Yep. You’re about to be in a Quentin Tarantino film. Pull it together, Channing,’ ” Tatum continued. “I looked so scared.”
He probably did look hilariously scared….and should be. The film also stars Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh, but NO PRESSURE CHANNING TATUM.
