Dear Gossips,

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. Full Story

Sam Rockwell and Leslie Bibb are still together. And they were at Sundance. And that matters to the five of us who care about them, who would for sure rank them top 5 in a cool couple list…even though they are way too cool to be on a cool couple list. Rooney Mara and Theo James are together in Dublin working on a film called Secret Scripture directed by Jim Sheridan. Full Story

The thing that has always worried me about Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot is that it would just be Chronicle: Redux. And then a couple months ago I saw some rough footage and had a definite YIKES reaction, so my expectations, which weren’t high to begin with, plummeted even lower. I was having flashbacks to Roger Corman’s infamous 1994 Fantastic Four, made entirely so that a studio could keep character rights from reverting to Marvel Entertainment. Full Story
