Channing Tatum did an interview recently with The Hollywood Reporter where he discussed Magic Mike 2 and his new movie White House Down.
Of Magic Mike 2, he said, "It will be a road-trip movie, and it will essentially be the movie that everyone thought the first one was going to be: crazy and fun and less slice-of-life than drama. The first one, we had to make not so cheesy and campy; this one we are going to swing for the fences."
He also discussed being an actor, saying he didn't plan on being in movies.
"I never planned on being an actor; I definitely never planned on being a model. You think about a lot of things - the military. I never really entertained going into the military, but when you are 18 and you decide to go to college, you definitely ask a lot of questions."
Tatum also plans on taking time off soon.
"I am definitely taking off soon, for sure. I gotta do 22 Jump Street, then after that I am just going to turn off the phone and enjoy my life for a while," he said.
