Channing Tatum In Talks To Join The X-Men! Find Out Which Character He's Dying To Play HERE!

channing tatum gambit x men movie casting meeting

Is Channing Tatum joining the X-Men?? He does have super dancing powers…

The Magic Mike star has previously X-pressed interest in playing Gambit, a New Orleans thief who joined the X-Men in the '90s and quickly became a fan favorite!

The character briefly appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but the less said about that, the better! (Even though Taylor Kitsch is super hot!)

But now that X-Men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer and producer Lauren Shuler Donner have said they want to bring Gambit to the big screen, the possibility is getting more and more real!

Channing has even already had a meeting on the subject! He says:

"I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I've ever loved. I mean I've loved them all, they're all great, but I guess from being down south – my dad's from Louisiana, I'm from Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida – I don't know. I just related to him. He's just kind of suave- He's the most un X-Men X-Man that's ever been in X-Men. Other than maybe Wolverine, who's like the anti-hero. He's a thief. He's not even a hero. He's kind of walking the line of grey… He loves women and drinking and smoking and stuff so he's just a cool guy who happens to have a moral center… I hope it [comes together]. You never know, it's a weird industry. If the stars align, I would die to play it. I'm already working on the accent. It's crappy at the moment."

Now that's some serious passion! They have to put him in the purple tights now!

Besides, how do you NOT cast Channing Tatum in your movie if you have the chance?!

What do U think about Channing being in the next X-Men movie?

    nooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

    I think Tatum seems like a genuinely nice guy but he cannot act. And Gambit is the best x-men character.

    Taylor Kitsch is extremely hot, and I happen to prefer him over Channing Tatum. I'd like to see him reprise his role as Gambit instead.
