Channing Tatum can be funny, he can be serious and he can certainly dance. But, thanks to Jimmy Fallon, we now know he can act out any script you give him on the fly, even if it’s written by a bunch of little kids.
Last night (June 23) on the Tonight Show, Tatum stopped by to plug his upcoming movie Magic Mike XXL and also got a chance to act out scenes from the original as written by a bunch of elementary kids in a skit Fallon likes to call “Kid Theater.”
Don’t worry, these little kids did not actually see Magic Mike they just imagined what a movie called Magic Mike would be like and wrote their own scenes. And thankfully, none of them are anything to do with male exotic dancers or Ginuwine’s “Pony.”
They mostly had to do with magical Mikes who are sometimes magical alien warriors or magical birds who don’t want to be magical birds. In one scene written by an 8-year-old named Steven from Dallas, Texas Channing was a Magic Mike who helped a kid named Josh fix his bike’s flat tire.
