Channing Tatum, one of Hollywood’s most sought-after stars, was put to the truest of acting tests last night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The 35-year-old heartthrob showed up ready to perform a couple of skits from his hit stripper movie sequel Magic Mike XXL, but was caught off guard when Fallon naturally added a twist to the game.
Instead of performing the real scenes from the film, these scripts were written by elementary school kids, who had been given no information about the movie besides its title, and the outcome was absolutely hilarious. Watch what Fallon calls the “fun challenge,” above.
Momma Dee from Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta is taking advantage of every single second she has left as a single woman. The 51-year-old reality star got up close and personal with a pretty hunky stripper at her bachelorette party in Atlanta this week (to put it less eloquently, he was basically humping her face). Thank god for smart phone technology, ’cause we’ve got the whole lap dance on tape.
Novelist Chuck Palahniuk decided to broaden the Fight Club audience by releasing his newest version of the all-time classic, Fight Club For Kids. Palahniuk launched into a lively read of the classic bedtime picture book of “a boy who had no name,” a hilarious attempt to reach youngsters on YouTube. The move, to Palahniuk, seemed inevitable…after all, his current audience is “growing older… and having children and… dying.”
Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, is making yet another major career move as he takes on a part in Rampage, a live action feature set for a 2016 summer production start. Rampage is based on a classic Midway Arcade game that has had numerous incarnations on different gaming platforms.
New Line and producer Beau Flynn are keeping the plot on the DL, but we do know the game involves three giant monsters–a gorilla, a lizard and a wolf–that wreak havoc across North America. And of course, it’s The Rock’s job to save the day. What an original role for him… it’s always the best when actors try out something unfamiliar and new.
