Channing Tatum is no stranger to dancing, and we’re no stranger to watching him dance, all the while loving every second of it. You might remember his dance moves from the tiny, low budget movie Step Up. Or maybe you recall a move or two in both of the completely under-the-radar Magic Mike movies.
Either way, lucky for everyone, Tatum is back at it. He’s starring in the new Coen Brothers’ comedy, Hail Caesar! and there’s a wee bit of dancing involved, among other things.
In one scene of the movie, Tatum’s character gathers his shipmates to dance around on stools and tables in a pub. A bunch of sailors dancing around a pub? We’ll take it.
The six-minute tongue-in-cheek musical number was originally supposed to last “like five seconds,” Tatum said in an interview with New York Magazine. Since it lasted for exactly five minutes and 55 seconds longer than what he expected, it’s probably going to be one of the highlights of the movie.
And the best part of the whole story? Tatum doesn’t just dance around the pub, he also sings the song “No Dames!” Not surprisingly, he happens to have some experience in the singing department.
“I’ve sung to my daughter, and she cried every time,” Tatum said.
We’re assuming she cried happy tears knowing her dad is so fantastically talented, not because he sucked. Tatum verified that he, in fact, did not all the way suck. “If I’d sucked, they could have dubbed someone else’s voice in,” Tatum said about the movie’s soundtrack. But they didn’t, and he credits “the magical tools they have” in recording studios to him sounding great. Picturing Channing Tatum singing to his daughter is the best vision we’ve had all day. We’re sure it’s also a pretty good sight to see for Jenna Dewan Tatum. So, in honor of Channing Tatum and his sweet family, and simply because we want to, we’ll leave this right here:
