Channing Tatum confirmed as Gambit
IGN.COM – Back in January X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner expressed an interest in casting Channing Tatum as Gambit in a proposed standalone movie, then in April the 21 Jump Street star said that he’d love to play the character. And now it seems a deal has been done, with Donner confirming the news last night. “It is Channing” Donner told TotalFilm on the X-Men: Days of Future Past red carpet in London. “He’s a rogue, Channing, he’s a rascal, like Remy LaBeau, and he can handle the action, we all know that.” Donner added that the fact he’s a southerner and knows that world makes him the perfect person to play the part.
Boy is nothing sacred any more? I mean, listen we all know Channing can handle comedy and he can dance his ass off any make girls cum at an alarming rate just by sneezing, but if you think that he will make an exceptional Gambit, you have another thing coming. Gambit is my boy, the ragin’ cajun, the guy who actually rescued Wolverine in Origins. I don’t know if this is the right guy for the part, but then again, a lot of people were wrong about Heath Ledger as Joker and look what we got.
