Channing Tatum was Almost Gambit in "X-Men 3"

Channing Tatum was Almost Gambit in "X-Men 3"Submit Comment
During the last week, Channing Tatum (GI Joe) has already mentioned that he wanted to be "Thor" and "Captain America" in the upcoming Marvel films. And now, he tells MTV News that he wanted to play Gambit in the upcoming "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" as well.

"Man, I was dying to play [Gambit]," said Tatum. "My dad's from Louisiana and I think I've always just gravitated towards Gambit in general. He's just cooler than anything to me."

Tatum almost got his chance when Brett Ratner was casting for "X-Men: The Last Stand." The character, however, was dropped at the last minute. "They didn't end up putting his character in because he's such a big character that they were waiting."

When it was decided that Gambit would make his big-screen debut in "Wolverine" instead, Tatum was immediately contacted about the role, but found that it would be impossible to work out in terms of schedule due to his commitments with "GI Joe."

The role ultimately went to Taylor Kitsch, a choice that Tatum endorses. "I'm really interested to see how the guy plays him because I have a pretty clear version of Gambit in my head," he said. "I'm sure the guy is going to be great, though."

He's wrong for Gambit, wrong for Thor, wrong for Captain America, he's wrong for Duke... hell, he's wrong for pretty much anything he's BEEN in. WHY does this guy keep getting roles???

Tatum and Ron Howard should get together to talk about all the movies that they didn't do. Maybe then we won't have to hear about it.

hahaha Amazing Bill, naw cause then WP would post it that they got together. I just cannot take this dude seriously. Maybe GI Joe will change it or maybe it will solidify it. Just put him and John Cena in a movie together as brothers nd call it D'uh.

Please put Channing Tatum in the reboot of Deliverance where he will take the role of Ned Beatty's character. Another red-neck with a SAG card. Jesus Christ.

for the love of god someone let him play something of a superhero! The guy they got for Gambit was perfect! Thor for him = f*ck no! and Captain America... yeah I could totally see it, a lot better than f*cking Matthew McConaughey or Will Smith

What's the deal with all these young f*cking people wanting to be Gambit!!!? There's nothing about him that looks or act remotely like Gambit. IF anything THE perfect person to play Gambit would be Josh Holloway from Lost.
