Channing Tatum

Legitimate movie star or just the second coming of Paul Walker?

by Anonymousreply 14512/13/2014

both are hot, who cares if they can act.

Paul Who?

I'm serious, I have no idea who that is.

I do, however, know who Channing Tatum is.

Which may or may not begin to answer your question.

by Anonymousreply 201/23/2012

Good question.

by Anonymousreply 301/23/2012

They are very similar. Channing Tatum is in a better position because he is handsome but isn't quite a "pretty boy" type like Paul Walker.

That makes him easier to be appeal to both women and straight men.

And in spite of his limited acting range almost everyone that has worked with Channing seems to genuinely like him a lot. That goes far in the industry.

Paul Walker is a nice guy. Maybe not the best actor in the world, but does a ton of charity work.

Channing Tatum can't act for shit, despite the fact that Hollywood is trying its darndest to "make him happen". This year alone, he'll be starring in two Steven Soderbergh movies, a romantic drama with Rachel McAdams, as well as the G.I. Joe sequel and the 21 Jump Street remake. Expect to see him everywhere.

In terms of choosiness, he makes Christopher Walken look like Daniel Day-Lewis.

Tatum was cute a few years back but hasn't aged well. And when he isn't in shape for a movie, he gets fat very quickly.

Not to mention that he can barely form sentences, much less emote.

Channing Tatum has street cred. He played a hip hop dancer in Step Up, gets urban media attention, hangs with black dudes, and speaks in an authentically hip hop manner. Moreover, Bossip named Channing one of the Top 10 White Boys Whose Babies Black Women Wouldn’t Mind Having. Channing acts and sounds like a brotha. He has swagga.

I saw the trailer for his new film The Vow, right before I saw this post. If I were Rachel Adams I'd be concerned about my career, from Ryan Gosling to him as leading man.

I would take Paul Walker any day of the week. From the neck down CT is fine, but the neck up, no. There does seem a concerted effort to make him happen and I don't get it.

He's painful to listen to and watch on screen. He'd be fine if he stuck to action movies, lots of displays of his body, less 'acting'.

Channing Tatum is super hot. Not the best actor, but if George Clooney can get an Oscar nod, I'm not sure acting ability matters anymore.

The person who compared him to Josh Hartnett is spot on. I'd say he has more in common with Hartnett than Walker. Like Hartnett, he has that urban boy swagger and laid back demeanor. I think Harnett may be the better actor out the two, but Tatum is definitely hotter.

And, boy, he can dance his ass off! Step It Up was a cheesy, throwaway movie, but his dance scenes were incredible. I haven't seen a white boy move with such agility like that in film since Revolta in Saturday Night Fever. Tatum is going to be around for a while, I think. He knows his range, thus, he picks movies that suit him. Tatum knows he'll be more of a pinup movie star than an actor with serious chops.

He's having a moment but all of his movies are complete crap and he can't act.

I completely agree, but at this point I am no longer shocked when DLers utterly savage any and all very attractive male celebrities. I gave up the first time some bitch uttered, in all seriousness, that Brad Pitt was "hideous." (And that was long before he hooked up with Angelina.)

Channing Tatum is not a great actor, but he's definitely better than Paul Walker, who can't act, period. Walker is hot to death but has zero personality as well; Tatum at least seems to have a sense of humor, and he did surprisingly well on SNL last week. Contrary to R41's wannabe-schadenfreude proclamation, "The Vow" will be just as popular with straight women aged 15 to 45 as "The Notebook" was, and regardless of how much of a crapfest "G.I. Joe 2" is, it will nevertheless earn at the very least as much as its predecessor ($300 million worldwide). "21 Jump Street" actually looks funny, at least when one isn't wearing a Scrooge outfit like R41.

R55- I think he's hot. My opinion. I must say he was hotter to me before. Now not that much. But, my point is Hollywood isn't trying to still make him happen. He's happening. Has been for years now. I thought he would have fizzled out now. Yet he keeps getting good scripts and decent movies. Whereas Josh didn't last that long. I thought he would now can't even remember what he played in last.

I'm not sure why R49 says Paul Walker has no personality. Do you mean Paul (the actor) has no screen presence? Because Paul (the person) definitely has a personality. He's very into the environment, and runs a charity (Reach Out) that does a ton of relief work for earthquakes and other natural disasters. And unlike some celebrities, he doesn't do it for the publicity and camera crews.

R84, yes people can 'strip' off their clothes without it being for money, but you forget 2 points:

1. It is normally referred to as 'taking' off your clothes when it is not done for money

2. Because Channing WAS a stripper it makes sense to only describe him as 'stripping' if in fact that is what he is doing

A reasonable person would have assumed it to have been a pic of Channing stripping on stage.

I just saw his SNL episode and lawd, is he one hot piece of ass. He SO reminds me of one of those guys who would strip in a gay bar and go home with you if the price was right. The opening sequence when he gyrated on the stage in those tight pants and suspenders, and the stripping skit where he was dressed as a construction worker in denim short-shorts--WOAH. And he was pretty funny spoofing Matthew McConaughey, too. He's got his voice down pat.

I've always believed the bisexual rumors just because they have been around so strongly since anyone even knew he he was. To his credit I don't think Channing has ever bothered to deny it, so whether it is true or not I appreciate the way he really doesn't give a fuck.

Paul Walker never attained the superstar status Channing now has. In "This is the End," the dudes exalt Channing as hotter than any other celebrity, the dude that every guy lusts for. I hear my straight bros talk about Channing Tatum as that dude they would do it with. Women of course cite Channing as the male sex symbol. At the same time, he doesn't take himself too seriously and is viewed as down to Earth. He is the new Brad Pitt, except cooler, and he can dance.
