I don't get all the hate. He's not the first guy who pops to mind, but neither was Hugh Jackman. I've only really seen Magic Mike and 22 Jump Street, but I thought he was really good in both of those. Charismatic with good range. If he's into the character, that's a plus.

I am not a fan. I don't know what it is about him but he just rubs me all the wrong way.

I hope he's not the only option for Gambit they're meeting with. I don't care for the guy either.

He's wrong for Gambit. Not a physical resemblance and the general vibe isn't there. Not to sound like a broken record.

AGREED! He doesn't look like Gambit at all. He's way too buff and he doesn't have a Gambit face. Also his acting is horrible. He does ok in some of those cliche bluckbuster movies because those roles are all 1 dimensional. I seriously doubt Channing can pull off the Gambit persona. The elegance, the charm, the cunning, the swagger, the wit, the ruthlesness etc. I'm hoping for devine interventon at this point.

It's so hard, you know? Yes, I want t see Gambit again on the big screen but not with this guy. He'll ruin it.

I like Tatum, in several of the movies I have seen him in, Magic Mike, 21 Jump Street.I like this guy better as Gambit. Just do not see Tatum as that character, meathead.

The only redeeming thing about this movie.

isnt interesting that the only person from the studio to mention Channing is Lauren? lol To me its like the rest of the creative team has a different point of view
On other hand, if Channing gets the role, he will gets his own franchise, so Fox would have not only one, but two solo franchises, Wolverine and Gambit, and thats always a good thing

Lauren seems to be the only one rooting for him, but I remember Singer saying Gambit should have his own movie and let's face it, Channing is not a good actor but his recent movies are $$$ proof!

Taylor Kitsch came off too soft and metrosexual for Gambit.

Gambit should be charming and handsome but also rugged and somewhat sinister.

Fox doesn't want another box office bomb.

Because he's hot.

I didn't even notice he has a thick neck before you mentioned it.

You're overestimating Fox. They would rather get an actor who appeals to teenage girls so they don't have to focus on writing a good movie. Those girls will watch anything with a "hottie" in it. I'm suprised they didn't cast Edward or Jacob for Gambit.

I honestly didn't know Taylor Kitsch had fans of his Gambit I thought he was a highlight in a piss poor movie so I'm not sure why they don't get him back. Tatum isn't a horrible choice but I just don't see the point in switching actors. Like someone said how about we get good writers...
