Channing Tatum's Booty Clap

Rich Juzwiak · 07/03/12 11:05AM

Skip to the 1:20 mark for what you didn't see in Magic Mike: Channing Tatum making Hollywood's best male ass clap. What will he do next to keep us fanning ourselves collectively? The world is such an exciting place.

Magic Mike’s Cody Horn Is the New Tori Spelling

Twenty-four-year-old model/actress Cody Horn plays Channing Tatum's love interest in Magic Mike, and she is terrible enough to do major damage on the film's pacing and energy. She is one big suck every time she's onscreen, and she's onscreen a lot. It seems ridiculous that someone so inept would have landed such a high-profile role and get to kiss on something as plump and hitmaking as Channing Tatum's pair of lips and get paid for it.

Ted's Titular Bear Is a Sex Symbol to Some, an Abomination to Others

If your reaction to the Ted trailer wasn't instant arousal, there's a good chance you're not a plushie. But if you are, in fact, a stuffed animal fetishist, Seth MacFarlane's first full-length live-action feature is kind of the holy grail. This is a mainstream film with a talking, highly sexualized teddy bear.

Here's a Picture of Channing Tatum As an Actual Stripper

Rich Juzwiak · 06/29/12 11:25AM

Back in the day, Channing Tatum didn't only just play a stripper on TV commercials and in movies — he was an actual stripper. You know this. His former profession is why he's one of the producers of Magic Mike. It's also something that adds to his status as an American icon. Going from stripper to producer/star is the American dream in sum. Anyway, I've never seen this picture before. I had no idea of his dark, pierced past.

Magic Mike: Channing Tatum Is the Icon of New Masculinity

Rich Juzwiak · 06/29/12 09:57AM

Metrosexuality had to live and die for us to get to this new, at-ease, intimately homosocial era of masculinity, at least as it is depicted in pop culture. It's a time of bromance, of straight dudes getting drag-queen makeovers on reality TV, of straight soldiers lip-synching like drag queens on YouTube, of Chris Brown and Justin Bieber intimately duetting, of Drake and Justin Bieber intimately duetting, of rappers implicitly endorsing gay marriage. And no film has better encapsulated the new masculinity zeitgeist that values self security over rigid, external notions quite as definitively as Steven Soderbergh's male-stripper saga Magic Mike.
