Channing Tatum Turns 41!: A Look At The Characters He’s Played Over The Years

today26 April 2021


Happy birthday, Channing!


Although he doesn’t look like it, this Hollywood star is turning 41 today! With an undeniable talent and chiselled good looks, he has acted in over 40 movies so far. *cue cash register sounds*


But that’s not all Channing has to offer. With over 20 years in the industry, he has had a pretty fascinating career. So let’s take a look at some of the most iconic characters he has ever played!


1. Duke Orsino from She’s The Man

Some of the best classics from the mid-2000s, ‘She’s the Man’ gave us Duke Orsino, the attractive jock. He completely steals the scene with his crazy antics and unexpected sensitive side. If you’re in the mood for something light-hearted, check this film out and watch Channing flex his comedic chops!


2. John Tyree from Dear John 

Okay, maybe this movie isn’t as light-hearted as ‘She’s the Man’. In fact, it’s the total opposite. This romantic war drama film features Channing as a soldier who falls in love with a college student. These two are forced apart after he is deployed to war but stay in touch by exchanging letters. 

Get a box of tissues ready. You’re gonna cry. 


3. Jenko from 21 Jump Street 

In this American buddy cop movie, Channing plays a cop with all the brawns but…lacking the brains.  

This movie will take you on a hilarious adventure as we see Channing play an undercover cop posing as high-school students. Together with his partner, played by Jonah Hill, they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks and notebook…and discover that high school is nothing like what they remembered.
