Channing Tatum's Improvised Scene in AGTRYS

DID YOU KNOW?...Here is a picture of Channing taken at the Sundance Film Festival in January of 2006 where he seems to be channeling a little bit of his tough charactor Antonio from A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.

There is a dramatic scene in AGTRYS where one of the characters has a stroke. Out of frustration, Channing's character Antonio throws a table through the glass window of a door. This was a huge surprise to the director, cast, and crew, because it was not a part of the script. Channing had improvised it. He actually got so wrapped up in the scene, he nearly lost control. The rest of the cast managed to stay in character and finish the scene, and the director ended up liking Channing's surprise improv so much he kept it as the final version.

That's cool hearing how he improvised that scene....That's the second tyme i heard he has improvised a scene...That and a scene from She's the Man...he seem's to be good at improvising, cause tha directors end up keeping it in the movie.

I thought it was really cool too! Do you remember where you heard about the improvised scene in She's the Man? I find that kind of stuff really interesting.
