Channing Tatum Wants to Play Gambit in Next 'X-Men' Movie!
Channing Tatum jams out to music on his headphones while making his way through LAX Airport on Wednesday (April 16) in Los Angeles.
The 33-year-old actor recently opened up about wanting to play his favorite X-Men character Gambit in an upcoming film for the franchise.
“Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved,” Channing said backstage at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards (via THR). “I mean, I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess just being from down South — my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida — I don’t know, I just related to him.”
“I would die to play it. I’m already working on the accent. It’s crappy at the moment,” Channing added. “He’s the most un-X-Men X-Man that’s ever been in X-Men, other than maybe Wolverine, who’s like the antihero. He’s a thief. He’s not even, like, a hero. He’s kind of walking the line of gray. He loves women and drinking and smoking and stuff, so he’s just a cool guy who happens to have a good moral center.”
FYI: Channing is wearing BiGR Audio headphones.
