Channing Tatum 'D**k Graze Is Very Stupid'
Star makes no apology for silly hip-hop video from 22 Jump Street set...
Shot on the set of 22 Jump Street, the clip features Tatum, co-star Jillian Bell and dance music maestro Diplo in a mock rap video about a new method of greeting.
Asked to comment on the viral clip by E! News, he replied: "It was just something fun for us to do.
"We were messing around on the set in Puerto Rico. It was just crazy.
"I don't really have anything to tell about it other than it's very stupid."
But Chan the man seems determined to break away from his beefcake image and has been linked to another serious project.
There's already been Oscar chat in relation to his forthcoming role in heavy drama Foxcatcher - and now he's tipped to produce and star in the movie adaptation of Struck By Genius.
The memoir by Jason Padgett tells how the author became a maths genius following a head injury in an assault, but also had to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder and other personality issues.
But don't worry Chan fans - he's still scheduled to start shooting Magic Mike XXL this autumn!
