Every once in a while there’s a celebrity who seems to be everywhere all at once, and right now it’s Channing Tatum. He’s already had two movies out this year: The Lost City opposite Sandra Bullock, which is the #5 highest-grossing film of 2022 so far, and the sweet road-trip dramedy Dog, which he also co-directed.
Outside of his acting career, he’s a successful author. As a follow-up to his 2021 New York Times best-selling children’s picture book, The One and Only Sparkella, he’s got its follow-up, The One and Only Sparkella Makes a Plan, coming out May 31.
But fear not, he’s still dancing, too. After the success of Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL—which spawned a Broadway musical, a reality competition and a Vegas show—Channing has recently been filming Magic Mike’s Last Dance in London, though no release date has been announced yet.
In his personal life, Tatum’s been in the spotlight ever since he started dating The Batman’s Catwoman herself, Zoë Kravitz, last year. What’s more, he’s starring in her directorial debut, Pussy Island, as an ultra-wealthy tech mogul who owns a private island where he throws huge parties surrounded in mystery.
But that’s nowhere near the only project he’s got in the works. He’s reuniting with his 21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street and The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller for some sort of tongue-in-cheek “monster movie.” He’s also starring in the remake of the critically acclaimed 2019 German film System Crasher. And just as I was thinking, “All that’s missing is a musical,” I came across an old article about Channing and Joseph Gordon-Levitt planning to star together in Wingmen, a musical about pilots who crash-land in Vegas. Alas, there hasn’t been an update on that one for 5 years, so I’m not holding my breath for it to actually happen.
If any of this has inspired you to watch one of Channing’s movies, two of them are actually free to stream through redbox.com right now: The Son of No One (where I barely recognized him on the poster),and the future-star-filled A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints. In addition to his other movies I already mentioned above, I’d also recommend catching his dramatic performance in the disturbing-but-compelling true-story Foxcatcher, in which he starred alongside Oscar-nominated Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo.
