Not into him at all. I hate his one-tone voice in every part. He reminds me of Mark Walburg in that way, all muscle and abs, but does not have very good acting chops.

I HATE his name. Channing as a first name is a weird name. Chan Tatum would have sounded better as his acting name. Not much but a bit better.

This guy is the new “IT” guy in Hollywood, he is a producer as well… good for him.

Good for Channing, but I guess he won’t be showing too much skin in this movie :(

# 5

He’s positioning himself to be the new (non-crazy) Tom Cruise. Good for him, because that spot has been empty in Hollywood for a long time!

…he’s doing a lot but his performances arent that great.
@lori: no he’s not. not even close. remember who tom cruise is and what’s hes accomplished in his crazy career. this guy is not heading in that direction. pick a different actor.

If he can be considered to be an “actor”, I guess I can be one too!

@lori: “high horse”?! ahahahaha easy kiddo, take it easy. ahahahaha um.. tom’s “major career break” came 3 years into his career, what, his 4th film? not 7 years, 21st film. come on, wake up.

Im glad hes becoming a ‘serious actor’

He might be a great muscle guy but he’s not a great actor, go find a body builder and give him a script to learn and wow now he’s the best actor of the year, it really sucks
