Channing Tatum Was Almost In the 'Fast & Furious' Movies, But He Screwed It Up

4 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The smooth and suave Channing Tatum recently stopped by the Jimmy Kimmel show while promoting Hail, Caesar! (in theaters this week), and while there he romanced a lucky stranger yanked off the street in honor of Valentine's Day (watch the video below), but he also spoke about his worst audition ever for the film Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Back in 2006 -- before the Fast & Furious franchise found its footing again, reuniting franchise stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in 2009's Fast & Furious -- there was Tokyo Drift. And apparently a young Channing Tatum who was just starting to blossom as an actor (this was around the time of the first Step Up movie and A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints) auditioned for a role in the Fast & Furious sequel.

Two Things Channing Tatum Had To Master Before Starring In Hail, Caesar!

26 January 2016 11:07 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Channing Tatum is no stranger to dancing on screen. He began his journey to stardom 2006’s Step Up. He’s even given us choreography without most of his clothes in the Magic Mike movies. His newest film, the Coen Brothers tribute to the golden age of Hollywood Hail, Caesar!, required something entirely different. Turns out there’s one kind of dancing that Tatum was not familiar with: tap. Also, he doesn’t sing. Tatum’s lack of tap dancing experience was a pretty big issue for his role in Hail, Caesar! where the actor has to lead a full Busby Berkeley style musical number. Tatum tells Vulture that’s been trying to work with Joel and Ethan Coen for years. He actually auditioned for the role of Llewelyn Moss in No Country for Old Men, which eventually went to his Caesar »

Channing Tatum on the Hurdles of Learning to Sing and Tap Dance for Hail, Caesar!: My Daughter's 'Cried Every Time' I've Sung to Her

26 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Despite the expert dancing skills he has shown off in movies like Step Up and Magic Mike, Channing Tatum was at a loss when he was asked to tap dance (and sing!) for the upcoming Coen brothers-directed film Hail, Caesar!. "Joel and Ethan [Coen] ... were like, 'Look, here's a part, which we hope you want, because no one else can do it,' " Tatum tells New York. "Knowing what it turned into, it's hard to believe that was the truth. I know there are a lot of other people that could have crushed this thing. Because one, I don't sing, and two, »

How Channing Tatum Learned to Tap-Dance (and Sing, Kind of) for the Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!

26 January 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Channing Tatum has popped and locked in Step Up, vogued in viral videos, and waxed strip-club floors using only his pelvis in the Magic Mike movies, so naturally Joel and Ethan Coen assumed he’d be perfect for the big song-and-tap-dance number in their new comedy, Hail, Caesar! But no sooner had they cast him — as actor Burt Gurney, a Gene Kelly type starring in a movie-within-the-movie, a sailor musical in the mold of Anchors Aweigh — than two problems arose. “One, I don’t sing, and two, I don’t tap-dance,” says Tatum. “Joel and Ethan were like, ‘Here’s a part, which we hope you want, because no one else can do it.’ Knowing what it turned into, it’s hard to believe that was the truth.”In the script, the number was “like five sentences,” says Tatum, but it grew into a technically onerous, relentlessly delightful six-minute sequence »

How would you program this year's newest, most interesting films into double features with movies of the past you saw in 2015?Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2015—in theatres or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2015 to create a unique double feature.All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2015 fantasy double feature.
