Chan Crawford, Channing Biography
Channing Tatum was born in April of 1980 in Cullman, Alabama. The family moved to Mississippi just before he started school. He grew up in a rural setting and spent a great deal of time on the bayous near the Mississippi river. He was a very athletic boy, playing every type of sport imaginable including soccer, baseball, and martial arts. He always had an eye out for the ladies. His parents wanted him to focus on school work and gave him the choice of military school or private school. Tatum chose Tampa Catholic High School, where he was voted most athletic. He received a football scholarship at Glenville State College in West Virginia, but dropped out and returned home.
Tatum worked odd jobs but soon found that he could make much more money as a male stripper in a local nightclub. He worked under the name “Chan Crawford” and soon wrote a screen play about his experiences. This would eventually lead to the movie Magic Mike, which Tatum would star in. First, however, Tatum did some modeling and worked as a dancer in Ricky Martin’s music video “She Bangs.” After modeling for big names such as Armani and Abercrombie and Fitch, he worked some television commercials. It was in 2008 that Tatum made his film debut in Stop-Loss, but it was his role in Step Up which gained him fame. He has since made numerous successful films including Dear John, War of the Worlds, She’s the Man, GI Joe, The Eagle, The Vow, 21 Jump Street, and, of course, Magic Mike, as well as the sequel, which he produced, Magic Mike XXL.
Tatum is married to fellow actor Jenna Dewan and the couple had a daughter in 2013. This power couple has their own production company, 33andOut Productions, as well as Iron Horse Entertainment. This talented young star has a current net worth of $60 million.
