It seems like Channing Tatum has finally gotten his wish and will be starring as Gambit in an upcoming X-men spin off film. The 21 Jump Steet actor recently confirmed that was in “talks” with Fox regarding the role.
X-Men producer Lauren Shuler-Donner spoke at that film’s premiere in London and confirmed that Channing would be playing Gambit.
He’s a rogue, Channing, he’s a rascal just like Remy Lebeau. And he can handle the action, we all know that. And he’s got a really good heart, ‘cause I know him personally, I did a movie with him. So I think he’ll be great, he’ll be great for Gambit. And he’s a Southerner, too. He’s not from New Orleans, but he is a Southerner, he understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans.
So do you think Tatum is a good fit to play the Ragin’ Cajun?
