Any self-respecting Channing Tatum fan has seen his performances in 2006′s She’s the Man and the movie Step Up. If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably seen the movies more times than you’re willing to admit.
Because of the limited release of the movie that came out right after Step Up, many Channing fans didn’t get to see his award-winning performance as Antonio in A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints. In case you missed it, you should read Teen People’s article on Channing’s career-defining role in the movie. They also have a video interview of Channing talking about how difficult his first dramatic role was. Click here to view the video.
In the interview we learn that Channing would do almost anything for a friend or for the people that he loves. He also talks about how difficult it was to play Antonio as a person with a heart, when it is so easy for people to see the character as just the neighborhood psychopath.
Everytime I see Channing in interviews, I just can’t help but notice how big a of heart he seems to have and how important acting and giving a good performance is to him. In the famous words of Rachael Ray, Channing is just YUMMO!
