Channing Tatum

Following the huge success of the two hit films of the same name, Channing Tatum has announced 'Magic Mike Live', a stage version of his stripper movie franchise.

The 36 year old actor, whose life inspired the 2012 Steven Soderbergh-directed film Magic Mike in which Tatum also starred, announced in a video posted via Cosmopolitan that the new live show would hit Las Vegas in March 2017.

“We want to create a place for women that is their gentlemen’s club, their Playboy club,” the actor said in an accompanying interview. “It shouldn’t be sleazy. [You shouldn’t feel] nervous to go there because you feel unsafe; we want to create the polar opposite of that.”

"Would you date a 21-year-old person with autism?" she brazenly asked as she opened the chat, prompting the married actor to chuckle, claiming he would have to ask his wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum, for permission first.

Leonardo Dicaprio Invests In Environmentally Friendly Beverage Company


Channing Tatum Marlon Wayans Leonardo Dicaprio

The Oscar winner and environmental advocate has joined the advisory board of New York-based startup Runa after making an investment in the fair trade firm.

All of Runa's products are made from guayusa, a caffeinated tea leaf native to the Ecuadorian Amazon. The plant is sustainably produced by more than 3,000 indigenous farming families - the same farmers who will reap the benefits of DiCaprio's shares from Runa's profits.

"I am so proud to join with Runa in supporting the indigenous people of the Amazon," DiCaprio said in a statement. "The future of these communities, and many like them across the world, are at risk as their native lands are exploited for natural resource and agricultural development. Sustainable farming practices are key to helping ensure a brighter future for so many local people.

The American actor announced via Twitter he will star in the upcoming sequel to Matthew Vaughn's hit action-comedy Kingsman: The Secret Service.

“I’m about to get all up in that Golden Circle,” he tweeted on Wednesday (13Apr16).

Jackson, and Taron Egerton, earned more than $35 million (£24 million) when it opened last February (15) against competition from Fifty Shades of Grey. It went on to make almost $415 million (£293 million) worldwide. With a script penned by British-born Matthew and Jane Goldman, the sequel will further chronicle the exploits of Taron's character Gary 'Eggsy' Unwin, an erstwhile London hooligan who has been trained in the art of heroics by a secret spy organisation. In addition, despite their characters’ deaths in the first film, Colin and Edward Holcroft are also returning, though in what capacity remains unknown. They’ll be joined by Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal, with Hollywood heavyweights Halle Berry and Julianne Moore also reportedly in talks to join the cast. Magic Mike star Channing's role is also unclear at this stage but the graphic included in his tweet, may suggest he will play an American counterpart of Eggsy, known as the Statesman.

Hail, Caesar! Review

Excellent

An intelligent ode to a time when Hollywood made wildly inventive movies without pressure from focus groups, there's a serious edge to what superficially looks like a madcap comical romp. But this isn't one of Joel and Ethan Coen's nutty comedies. It's a pointed exploration of the collision between art and commerce, assembled as a sprawlingly entertaining ensemble movie packed with lively, often hilarious characters.

It's set over 24 hours at Capitol Pictures in 1951 as studio minder Eddie (Josh Brolin) tries to keep several movies in production despite a series of hitches, while twin gossip columnists (two Tilda Swintons) try to get a scoop. Top movie star Baird (George Clooney) has been kidnapped by communist writers from the set of his Roman epic. Water-ballet diva DeeAnna (Scarlett Johansson) is pregnant and unapologetically unmarried. And rising-star Hobie (Alden Ehrenreich) is struggling to make the transition from Western action hero to chamber room drama, clashing with his demanding new director Laurence (Ralph Fiennes). Meanwhile, song-and-dance man Burt (Channing Tatum) is up to something on the set of his sailor musical. With all of this, Eddie begins to think that maybe he should take the offer of a job outside the film industry.

As the movie darts between these various productions, the Coens gleefully reinvent this series of genres that have essentially died out. Yes, the film is a pointed depiction of how Hollywood used to make a wide array of movies for much broader audiences. Each sequence is written and directed with witty details that perfectly catch the way the chaos of a film set can be transformed into a glamorous motion picture in time for the starry red-carpet premiere. And the entire cast rises to the challenge. Clooney is terrific as the dim-witted star who hasn't a clue what's happening around him. Ehrenreich shows real charm as a smart kid struggling in an insane situation. Brolin holds things together in a surprisingly sympathetic role, while Swinton, Johansson and Fiennes add plenty of spark, and the film is stolen by Frances McDormand as a spiky film editor.

Channing Tatum Surprised With Hail Caesar! Dance Number


Channing Tatum George Clooney Josh Brolin Ralph Fiennes Scarlett Johansson Jonah Hill Tilda Swinton Ethan Coen Joel Coen

The Hollywood star may be known for his dancing skills, thanks to movies like Step Up and Magic Mike, but singing and tapping across the screen in full sailor uniform was a new challenge for Channing.

"I'd never put on a pair of tap shoes," he laughed to Britain's Metro newspaper. "It was only about four sentences in the script that said, 'He walks into a dance routine'. It was supposed to be on a battleship - and my character does a knee-slide to a bucket. I was like, 'Great, I think I can do that'. Cut to a few meetings later - now it was a six-minute song-and-dance (scene)."

Channing isn't the only A-lister to show off a new talent; George Clooney plays "willing imbecile" Baird Whitlock, a big time movie star who gets kidnapped by a group of communist sympathisers in 1950s America.

Haha this one is straight up my mama. “All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” ― Abraham Lincoln. She has put up with a lot over the years. Wow. Don't how we got here mama. But I know it's cause of you. I be lovin you.

I mean queen like.
I took this just days after jenna and I (mostly jenna) brought our little girl into the world. I've taken many like it over the past 3 years but this is one of my favorites. She was so tired. Haha. But she has such deep strength and other worldly grace. Watching her in those first days transform into a mother was life changing. She was every bit the beautiful, sexy, funny, flawed creature I fell in love with. But the prism turned and showed a whole new light that I had no idea existed, the light of a mothers love. Thank you for that baby.  Saw this quote today --
Dancing in the woods
Best birthday gift ever from my wifey
