Oscar Buzz Already For The Male Stripper Movie!

I’m no movie critic, but if the classic story of a stripper who becomes a furniture designer and finds love doesn’t scream Oscar, I don’t know what does. It’s so avant-garde Madonna has decided to make a sequel of W.E. with the same script but replace the entire cast with male strippers. Brilliant!

The buzz on Magic Mike is it will be so expressive you can watch it with no sound – think last year’s Best Picture winner The Artist . Check out the trailer:

Order your tickets now – I have a feeling this cinematic master piece will dwarf the summer’s other blockbuster hit The Hunger Games.

Check out this video of Channing from his days a stripping before he hit it big:

Magic Mike, loosely based on Channing Tatum’s life, will be hitting the silver screen on June 29. And from everything I know about Channing Tatum it seems to be spot on. I don’t think I have seen him in one movie where he hasn’t at least taken off his shirt.

Channing is quite a thespian so lets take a look at his BODY of work:

Channing all tatted up in “Fighting”

In The Eagle, poor Channing burned his penis. In an effort to keep warm during a scene shot in a swamp, Channing accidentally poured boiling water down his swimsuit. According to his interview in Details Magazine, he thankfully has fully recovered. Naturally, the only pic I could find is Channing naked in bed.

If you interested of what it looked like before the accident:

One of my observant readers discover it was fake. But stepping is a fantasy so I left it it.

Update: One of my observant readers discover it was fake (see comment below). But stripping is a fantasy so I’m leaving it in.

We got to see a completely different side of Channing in The Vow. He was very well-rounded in that role, gave a very tight performance and at times was very cheeky. No butts about it, this is a must-see movie.

I must say I didn’t get The Vow – A women wakes up from a coma with amnesia discovers her husband is Channing Tatum and doesn’t react like she won Mega-Millions–I don’t get it.

Channing gets down with the swirl in GI Joe. Nothing like a good twofer when you’re at the movies.

In 21 Jump Street it looks like Channing spent too much time chowing down in Jonas Hills’ trailer-he gave a weighty performance:

Channing by no means is the ‘She’ in She’s The Man, but he clearly uses his acting ability to communicate his manhood to the audience.

That’s quite a BODY of work. One can see how his early life struggles as a stripper has deeply influenced his work.

Here are some random pics from Channing’s modeling days; these shots will certainly give you a full appreciation of his entire life before you go see Magic Mike. 


Not sure where this photo is from but I it gives you an idea of his well rounded career.

After this extensive analysis how can you not see this picture—well, maybe if you’re a straight dude, you will take a pass on this and re-watch his male bonding and shirtless antics of Channing in G.I. Joe.
