6'1" Channing Matthew Tatum was born April 26, 1980 in Alabama.
Tatum's first "big break" was being cast as a dancer in Ricky Martin's "She Bangs" music video. From there, he went on to work as a model and an actor in commercials.
These images are of Tatum as Marcus Flavius Aquila in The Eagle. His impressive physique and experience as a dancer make him a perfect choice for sword and sandal films. I hope he'll be able to do more of them.
