I LOVE to see Channing Tatum in comedic roles! He was hilarious in the Ron Howard-directed comedy ‘The Dilemma‘ with Vince Vaughn and Kevin James, and based on what I saw on my recent set visit, fans are going to really get a kick out Chan and Jonah Hill in their comedy ‘21 Jump Street‘ when it hits theaters next March.
TODAY (Sunday, July 3, 2011), you guys can watch Chan’s first ever comedic role, because ‘She’s the Man‘ will be playing on ABC at 3:00 pm Central /4:00 pm Eastern. CLICK HERE to confirm show times in your area.
For those who don’t know, here’s what the movie is all about…
Viola Hastings (Amanda Bynes) has good reason for wanting to conceal her identity upon arriving at Illyria Prep school, and with her twin brother Sebastian (James Kirk) skirting school in an attempt to break into the London music scene, Viola sees her sibling’s well-timed absence as the perfect opportunity to assume his identity. When Viola is assigned a shared dorm room with campus cool guy Duke (Channing Tatum), her façade slowly begins to crumble as she begins harboring a deep-rooted crush on her unsuspecting new roommate.
The situation begins to take a turn for the worse, however, when Duke reveals his affection towards campus knockout Olivia (Laura Ramsey), who in turn seems increasingly drawn toward the sensitive imposter known as Sebastian. The problem is, the real Sebastian has decided to cut his London trip short, and upon arriving on campus two days earlier than expected, Viola’s elaborately executed ruse hits an unexpected hitch that sends the entire situation spiraling into chaos.
You can check out Chan as he plays Duke Orsino in the hilarious official trailer for ‘She’s the Man’ below:
