Tatum’s acting prowess has been mostly the tipping point in most of the aggressive discussions…and who could blame the doubters? Roles in G.I. Joe and White House Down have not done him any favors. However, Magic Mike and 21 Jumpstreet have not only been good but Tatum did well in them. Not to mention the fact that people have been doubting casting choices for superhero movies for years (read: Heath Ledger’s Joker and the newly maligned Ben Affleck as Batman) and most have been really, really good. I am now in the position of “wait and see” when it comes to stuff like this so only time will tell.
Anyway, I’m sure the fellas n the Free for All podcast will be discussing this in detail so tune in to find out what we think!
