Channing Tatum’s moves in Magic Mike may have just landed him the title of “Sexiest Man Alive.”

People won’t unveil their annual decision until Nov. 14, but Tatum is reportedly this year’s big winner, according Gossip Cop.

If he takes home the highly-coveted honor, Tatum will join a long list of the world’s hottest Hollywood hunks, including George Clooney and Brad Pitt – who’ve earned the title twice — and Mel Gibson, who was the first winner in 1985.

The magazine bestowed the sexy honor to Bradley Cooper last year and Ryan Reynolds in 2010.

Cooper has even weighed-in, giving his nominations for who should take over the role — his Hangover co-star Zach Galifianakis.

“He should be [the next Sexiest Man Alive]… He’s very sexy,” Cooper told Entertainment Tonight at the AFI premiere of his film Silver Linings Playbook.

Cooper’s other nod goes to an actor who was honored with the title 13 years ago.

“Maybe [Richard Gere],” he told People. “He’s sexy. You could take it from there.”

When asked about his reign coming to an end, Cooper said, “I’m gonna cry.”

Do you think Tatum is the “Sexiest Man Alive?” Weigh in below.
