Channing Tatum Has Met with FOX for GAMBIT Role

Reiterating that he'd love to play the New Orleans native mutant, MTV's Trailblazer Channing Tatum reveals he's taken a meeting with Fox's X-Men movies producer(s) for the role of Gambit. Check it out


"I met with Lauren Shuler Donner," revealed Channing Tatum to MTV (via Slash Film"And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. I mean I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess from being down south – my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida – I don’t know. I just related to him. He’s just kind of suave… He’s the most un X-Men X-Man that’s ever been in X-Men. Other than maybe Wolverine, who’s like the anti-hero. He’s a thief. He’s not even a hero. He’s kind of walking the line of grey…He loves women and drinking and smoking and stuff so he’s just a cool guy who happens to have a moral center….I hope it [comes together]. You never know it’s a weird industry. If the stars align, I would die to play it. I’m already working on the accent. It’s crappy at the moment." Lauren Shuler Donner, producer on all the X-Men movies, has expressed interest in doing a Gambit movie wth Channing Tatum in the title role. So it's no huge surprise or major deal that the Magic Mike actor has met with the producer. However, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer has expressed interest in using Gambit in the 2016 sequel X-Men: Apocalypse. What do you think?
