The Evolution of Channing Tatum: His Life in Movies (So Far)

by at .  Updated at . Comments

With the arrival of that incredible Magic Mike XXL trailer, we’re reminded just how far Channing Tatum has come since he first debuted onscreen.

Some think that we first set our eyes on Tatum in Step Up. But, that would be wrong. He actually first stole scenes from Samuel L. Jackson the year before!

We look back at the man who has done so much, so quickly, since he debuted on the big screen in 2005. 

Tatum has succeeded in action, rom-coms, comedies, animation, riveting dramas and even love-dripping romances.

As we get psyched for his return to the role that was inspired by his early days, watch Magic Mike online to see that, we look back at the man who continues to impress us with each successive movie.

His ability to deliver the serious to the silly (like these 21 Jump Street quotes) is honestly amazing.
