Channing Tatum’s Wife to Approve Moves in Magic Mike XXL

Channing Tatum’s sat down and spoke to People Magazine about his upcoming sequel Magic Mike XXL and the sexy dance moves that come with it.

“Our two choreographers on the movie, they’re really, really good friends,” Tatum tells People Magazine. “So I work it out with them and then I go show Jenna for approval.”

“She actually loves Magic Mike, believe it or not,” Tatum said. “It’s an interesting thing that actors have to deal with. We’re 10 years into it now, so it’s kind of old hat. We’ve moved past it.”

“If I was just doing some movie about strippers, then she’d probably be like, ‘Why do you want to do that?’” Tatum said. “But it started off as a story that I really love, and it’s grown into something that I love even more because it’s a weird world that I experienced in my real life.”

He added, “It’s just a part of me telling some part of my life. And she understands that.”

ISIS Too Much For FX Series

The FX series Archer is undergoing another slight rebranding. A season after changing to Archer Vice, the animated series is dropping ISIS, the acronym for the show’s non-government approved spy agency.

“We won’t say ISIS anymore, and the only visual representation of it will be that sign rolling off the show,” executive producer Matt Thompson told The Daily Beast. “It’s just the most awful thing, and we didn’t want to have anything to do with it.”
