channing tatum x men casting gambit confirmed

Ahhh! When we heard Channing Tatum was interested in joining the X-Men, we were stoked- but we never thought it would really happen!

But at the U.K. premiere of X-Men: Days Of Future Past, producer Lauren Shuler Donner spilled that talks to cast fan-favorite character Gambit were officially over! She said:

"It is Channing. Yes."

Amazing! Uncanny! Astonishing! So besides having super sexiness powers, what else makes Channing perfect for the role? Lauren says:

"He's a rogue, Channing. He's a rascal. Just like Remy LeBeau. And he can handle the action, we all know that. And he's got a really good heart. I know him personally, I did a movie with him. So I think he'll be great for Gambit."

We can't wait to see this!

For all the Magic Mike fans new to the world of X-Men, Gambit is a New Orleans thief whose mutant power is to charge anything he touches with extra kinetic energy- making it explode!

We heard Channing's touch had that effect! It's nice to have it confirmed! LOLz!

    umm why wouldn't Taylor Kitsch play him? Since he's already played him once before. This makes no sense!
