2012 Year in Review: Favorite Male Movie Performances
Channing Tatum, Magic Mike
On the most surface level, it would be easy to dismiss Channing Tatum as a second-rate pretty-boy, perfect for action roles like G.I. Joe or Haywire, but hardly the kind of actor who earns the respect of critics for his range. But Tatum offers an honest and engaging performance in Magic Mike that will no doubt elevate the broadly built twenty-something into that range of young, up-and-coming actors with a bright future ahead.
