Channing Tatum Gossip
Channing Tatum gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Channing Tatum was on Kimmel last night. He did a bit with his childhood imaginary friend and then announced the winners of the Team Oscar contest. It’s a thing with the Academy where they invite people to submit videos about the best advice they’ve ever received and if they’re selected to be a finalist, they get to be part of the Oscar telecast. And then Tatum revealed the winners. The goal is to support emerging talent.
So… can we assume then that Channing Tatum will be presenting at the Oscars?
Speaking of the Oscars and Channing Tatum, there have been some of you asking about Jupiter Ascending, which opens on February 4th, and whether or not it’ll be Eddie Redmayne’s Norbit. I don’t know. I feel like if anyone has to own that, it’ll be Tatum. Read Full Intro

Matthew McConaughey is an Oscar winner. You would not have believed this 5 years ago. Maybe even 3 years ago. Back then he was synonymous with Kate Hudson. Back then he was good for taking his shirt off, thank you Matt Damon. If Matthew McConaughey can win an Oscar… why not, someday, Channing Tatum? After all, Channing Tatum, at this stage in his career, and at this age, is much more directed about his choices than McConaughey was at the same point. Full Story
Arguments for: -Super popular -Super nice -Promoting Foxcatcher right now and angling for Oscar consideration. -Has become a Hollywood power player; has worked hard to get here and no one resents him for it. People want to see Channing Tatum succeed. -No scandals and is always honest about who he is. Full Story

Earlier this year, Gawker leaked a Quentin Tarantino script for a Western called The Hateful Eight. Tarantino pitched a huge fit, said he was cancelling the movie, and then sued Gawker Media. Now, ten months later, he’s preparing to shoot The Hateful Eight and he’s dropped that lawsuit against Gawker. Full Story
Magic Mike time. He’s shooting in Savannah. Was photographed leaving his hotel yesterday. Am attaching these shots because I really enjoy the Channing Tatum reaction. Whenever we mention his name, just his name, on The Social, people start screaming. Without prompting. Hi! Welcome to the show! It’s Monday! Channing Tatum! And they go bananas. Full Story
Thought you might want to end the day with some Magic Mike 2 set photos of Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, and only a couple of Joe Meatball because I.Don’t.Care. Channing Tatum, nice, nice, very nice person. Channing Tatum one day an Oscar winner? They’re saying that Foxcatcher will change your mind about his abilities. Full Story
A quick programming note: there was a major delay on the subway this morning and I had that appointment at the eye clinic (I’m a good candidate for laser eye surgery) and so I’m just trying to catch up between preparing for The Social which goes live in a couple of hours. Going to hit you up with a few quick posts and photos and then focus on heavier analysis – including George Clooney’s wedding details – later on this afternoon. Full Story
So it was confirmed yesterday that Matthew McConaughey will not return for Magic Mike 2. The storyline is apparently a road trip, and either he wasn’t invited, or he didn’t want to get in the car. I’m thinking…he didn’t want to get in the car.
Channing Tatum will be back though. And Matt Bomer. And …Joe Meatball. Who keeps posting pictures of his ripped body on Twitter while he’s training for the movie even though I’m not sure he had more than 3 lines in the first one.

Nobody's saying Channing Tatum can't pull his weight. But with Foxcatcher, in walks a real contender: an all-around movie star and actor. Tatum plays Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz, who walks into a room, shoulders first, with his jaw always clenched. Naive and living a mostly solitary life, he trains with his brother, a fellow celebrated wrestler, Dave (Mark Ruffalo), then comes home to a bowl of Ramen. Full Story
Butt season continues! As I mentioned last week Cottonelle approached us to highlight their bum-pampering products by highlighting the best celebrity butts in Hollywood. This job doesn’t suck. Jacek was quite happy to do extensive research on the subject and eagerly forwarded several recommendations. Full Story
My etalk colleague Danielle McGimsie is one of the best television presenters I know. Her voiceovers are amazing. No one does a read like Danielle. And when she’s at a junket? Never mind. Danielle always brings back a strong interview for the show, even when the actor she’s interviewing is sh-t. Full Story
Late yesterday Warner Brothers announced that the Wachowski siblings’ new movie starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, Jupiter Ascending (aka Jackie and Potatohead Do Space), has been kicked from its sweet July 18 opening to February 6, 2015. It’s not surprising. When the tracking data was released for July movies it rated a dismal $18-22 million projection, against an estimated $150 million budget, which is probably a lot closer to $200 million in reality.

I interviewed Angelina Jolie yesterday. I’ve interviewed her before (Kung Fu Panda 2), but never for that long and also never alone. Makes a big difference. Like, I still feel her in my blood. And I think, I think I made her laugh. Twice. I also think, maybe, she enjoyed talking to me about feminism. But then again, I feel like maybe I’ve rewritten our entire narrative in my mind, imagined an entirely different situation than the one that actually went down. Which was, basically, me completely useless, just staring at her ridiculously perfect face. Haven’t watched the tapes back yet but I was there for etalk for the Maleficent Canadian exclusive with her so we’ll be airing the clips all week on the show, 7pm on CTV. Read Full Intro

At the Foxcatcher photo call today in Cannes – Mark Ruffalo, Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, with director Bennett Miller ahead of the big premiere and looking very confident after the press screenings. Miller delivers great work, work that’s worth waiting for. Last time it was Moneyball which went on to receive several Oscar nominations. Full Story
