Watch Channing Tatum Act Out Magic Mike Scenes Written By Kids

Last night on the Tonight Show, Channing Tatum did a bunch of Magic Mike scenes written by children, and it was charming and certainly more entertaining than GI Joe—though to be fair, Channing Tatum just reading this email on loop would also be more entertaining than GI Joe.

Equally charming was Tatum’s willingness to do the presumably cold read—he recently said doing SNL was “by far the most terrifying thing that I’ve ever done, because there is a lot of reading involved, and I don’t read that well out loud. I get terrified and freeze up.”

Even so, it was still probably more enjoyable than doing GI Joe. Turns out Tatum liked that film about as much as the audiences did: yesterday he told Howard Stern he was basically contracted into it against his will:

“Look, I’ll be honest. I f**king hate that movie. I hate that movie. I was pushed into doing that movie. [After] Coach Carter, they signed me for a three-picture deal […] And as a young [actor], you’re like, ‘Oh my god, that sounds amazing, I’m doing that!’”

Does he regret making any other movies? Hard to say...
