Channing Tatum To Eclipse Twilight?

Channing Tatum To Eclipse Twilight?

Channing Tatum is being touted as bad-boy vampire Riley in Eclipse, the third in Stephenie Meyer’s four-book Twilight series.

“There’s a very big battle at the end with Riley, and I think Channing would do that so well,” Twilight and New Moon screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who is currently writing the Eclipse script, tells E!’s Marc Malkin. “And there are some complexities to that character. He really is tragic. He’s a puppet for Victoria [bad-girl vampire played by Rachelle Lefevre]. So he has to break your heart a little bit at the end when he realizes that she doesn’t want him. Channing could do that beautifully.”

The 29-year-old actor has his new flick, Fighting, in theaters NOW.

DO YOU THINK Channing would make a good vampire — YAY or NAY?

I don’t want him to do it but maybe if he does, Tom Felton won’t have too. So if I had to pick between them, I’d rather have Channing join this horrendous series. (sry!) so YAY

Yay! Channing would do a hell of a Vampire!

channing tatum u are soo dam sexi, you can play any part you want. you will play that character so well i cnt wait!! x

channing is not a vampire type. you cant see him doing something like that: its just not him! DONT MAKE HIM BE RILEY!!!

yay and nay…. hes a good actor and he would be great in the movie but i cant see him as a vampire

i also agree with Christina mann HES HOTTT!!!!!

yes yes!!!
good idea!!!

Channing and eclipse are both my rated A faves…so I’d love the two to click..regardless the role, Channing will kick it big as an Eclipse star. Be watching out for that.

I’d personally be shocked if Channing even considered a role like this. I think he’s done too much to gain respect in the industry and this would be taking a step back toward the teeny-bopper side of it. And his body goes through phases for his roles…he can be uber sexy and bulky and he can lean out and just be boyish. Either way, he’d kill in this role, but I doubt he’d even take it.

no dont do it, your way to good for it, and way too hot!

Meu, se o Channing Tatum participar desse filme, vai ficar melhor do que já está.Já pensou Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson e Channing Tatum, lindos e perfeitos juntos, meu Deus, ninguém segura, kkkkk

In Russia, plagiarism went on Stephenie Meyer, twilight saga called “Attraction”!

Plz!!!! dont do it, your to hot to be in that stupid series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

I think this is fine oppotunity for him. It may be a different role compared to the other ones but he will get alot more fame in doing this movie like all the other characters have, even though he already has a lot of fame. I’ll be screaming at the cinemas when he shows up :)!!!

Well i guess he would be good for riley even if he is too old and too big i kind of imagined him as riley except for with blond hair and of course red eyes

I like the thought of him being in Eclipse, but tbh.. it would be pointless role for him when he can do ALOT better..

Yes he should be in the movie

I think thats the brilliant idea, hope the best for channing, be a good vampire, i will wait that, hohohohoho

yes i don’t even care if he suits the character channin tatum can pull off any character and hes freakin hot

ok channing tatum is a major hottie and he looks like a fighter and he is also a great actor but i dont think he looks like he could pull off the charater, riley

no way. i am in love with Riley (not the step up one) he is so hot. luv him xx So no, i dont think that the other dude should do it. i luv himmmmmm ***
