Channing Tatum Steps Up To A Film Career

Channing Tatum picSuper hot Channing Tatum is a former football player-turned-model from small-town Alabama, who decided to give acting a try and found himself in the starring role in "Step Up," a new dance musical that hits theaters today. In a recent interview, the 26-year-old says he found he has a passion for acting, saying, "I'm obsessed with it."

He had minor roles in "Coach Carter" and "She's the Man", but found that he could really relate to his character in "Step Up", because it was so much like his own experiences.

"All he wants to do is hang out with his friends. As long as no one messes with him, he doesn't mess with anyone," Channing said."I wasn't a foster kid, but as soon as I read the script I thought, "That's basically me on the page.' For years, I didn't have any idea what I wanted to do with my life except play football. I've played since I could walk."

Channing is better known for his work as an Abercrombie & Fitch model as well as appearing in the Mountain Dew TV commercials, and his type of style quickly attracted Hollywood's attention. "Someone sent me a script for 'The Fast and Furious 2' even though I had no idea how to act. I had never taken an acting class. But I almost got the role."

"Right away I thought, 'Maybe I should try this acting thing. It sounds like fun.' I took a workshop and now I'm obsessed with it. I'm absolutely obsessed. I don't do anything but watch movies and read film history and I couldn't be happier in my life."

Channing is currently working on a new film "Stop Loss," with Ryan Phillippe.
