Channing simply doesn't fit in any way whatsover.
Why not pick another skilled actor who looks the part instead of casting a goofy looking hunk who was hot in 2012.
I'd say most of those actually has to do with acting and writing, except slender and scruffy, but those can be fixed too.
But for me I'm not too tied down with Gambit having to be slender and scruffy to work. I want the spirit of Gambit captured, a literal translation is not a priority for me.
So the actor you want has to be both actual cajun and actual expert thief? Show me that actor.
