BLAST FROM THE PAST: Channing Tatum Is Having a Moment

Here is one of my favorite stills from Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan's dance movie 'Step Up'. It was also taken during my all time favorite dance movie scene.

More importantly, it's an Ultra High Quality (UHQ) picture that allows you to see pratically every beautiful little hair follicle growing out of Channing's head.

Believe it or not, I recently found this and 86 other high quality images of Channing from lots of different movies, photo shoots, and public appearances. I'm in the process of uploading them to the photo gallery and I will make a post today or tomorrow to let you know when I am done. Just consider this image a sneak peak.

In my never-ending search for anything Channing-related, I also found this old Entertainment Weekly article that was published on my birthday last year (August 25, 2006) a few weeks after 'Step Up' was released.

It's another short interview, but I highlighted in red the part that kind of caught my attention. Hopefully I'm not the only one who gets the well-placed double meaning in Channing's answer. If I am, then shame on me. Enjoy! :-D

Channing Tatum Is Having a Moment
Channing Tatum has had a big year -- The ''Step Up'' star has stepped up in Hollywood

By Tim Stack

One look and it's easy to imagine Channing Tatum's early career as a pinup for Dolce & Gabbana and an extra in Ricky Martin's ''She Bangs'' video. What's surprising about the 26-year-old star of STEP UP — which earned $20.7 million over its opening weekend — is that he never studied dance: ''I basically freestyled a lot,'' he says. ''I'm really good at physical things.'' Well, then. Not only does the ex-football player have rhythm, he has charisma to spare — as evidenced by turns in this year's SHE'S THE MAN and Sundance fave A GUIDE TO RECOGNIZING YOUR SAINTS, a coming-of-age indie set in Queens, out Sept. 29. But the Florida native is most excited about shooting Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Peirce's long-awaited, untitled follow-up film. Tatum and Ryan Phillippe play Iraq vets brought home and immediately ordered back overseas. ''The material is so good,'' says Tatum. ''Some of the best I've ever read.'' Luckily, there's no dancing required.

And my retort to Channing's declaration that he is really good at physical things? Well, the most PG-13 thing I can say is...I bet you are Mr.Tatum...I just bet you are. ;-) :-P
