The Next Ed norton,

Move over Norton, there's a new kid in town, he's got a much better disposition and he is cuter to boot! Channing Tatum was born on April 26, 1980 in a small town called Cullman outside of Birmingham, Alabama. Growing up he was full of energy and somewhat troublesome, so his parents decided to enroll him in different sports such as Track, Baseball, Soccer, Football to keep him out of trouble. In the ninth grade he was sent to military school. Eventually working for a men's clothing store and getting into modeling. Tatum has said that his modeling career has helped him with his life, specifying that "It's made my life, and my family's life, a lot easier, because I never knew what I wanted to do and now they don't really have to worry about me anymore. I've been able to explore life, and through exploring it I've found that I love art, I love writing, I love acting, I love all the things that make sense to me. And I've been given the chance to go out and see the world, and to see all the things out there. Not everyone gets that chance". He has modeled for Abercrombie & Fitch, Nautica, Gap, Aeropostale, Emporio Armani, and has been featured in television commercials for American Eagle, Pepsi and the very popular mountain dew commercials. Tatum's most recent roles were in Step Up, a dance-themed romance which opened on August 11, 2006 and the 1980s-set drama A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, in which he plays Antonio, a street youth in Astoria, Queens. Tatum has described the latter film as his "first dramatic role"; his performance received positive notices at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, where the film premiered.[3] The acclaim continued when he received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Supporting Male. Tatum's next film role will be in director Kimberly Peirce's Stop-Loss, about a soldier returning home from the Iraq War. You can now see him on the big screen A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints. [damn] Channing Tatum has been dating Step Up co-star Jenna Dewan since the filming. (although I know the gay community would like to claim him for their own)
