STEP UP

CHANNING TATUM (Tyler) is a talented young actor who is sure to establish himself as a breakout star in 2006 with exceptional roles in two highly anticipated films. In addition to STEP UP, Tatum recently received critical praise in Sundance for his powerful role in the independent film "Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.” The film won the Special Jury Prize for best ensemble performance as well as the dramatic directing award for Dito Montiel at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. In an article recapping the Sundance Film Festival, Rolling Stone stated, "Keep your eyes on newcomer Channing Tatum as Dito's loose-cannon friend Antonio. Shirtless and oozing physical and sexual threat, Tatum stalks his turf like Brando in ‘Streetcar.'”

Tatum was also recently seen starring opposite Amanda Bynes in the DreamWorks film, "She's the Man,” directed by Andy Fickman and produced by Lauren Shuler Donner. Again, Tatum drew exceptional reviews including Daily Variety referring to the film as having a "bright and enthusiastic cast, centered on the swarthy and magnetic Channing Tatum as Duke.”

Channing Tatum was born in Alabama and grew up in Florida. At age 23, he starred in an international Pepsi commercial with director Tarsem and two highly popular national Mountain Dew commercials directed by Kinka Usher. His natural charisma and athleticism in these commercials brought him to the attention of both extreme sports fans and Hollywood industry executives. He was then signed by a talent agency and started taking acting classes with Harold Guskin and at the Dena Levy Acting Studio.

In 2004, he had his first guest appearance on a television show with a role on an episode of "CSI: Miami.” In 2005, he starred in "Havoc” opposite Anne Hathaway and Joseph Gordon Levitt and then in "Coach Carter” with Sam Jackson. That same year, he starred as motor-cross superstar Rowdy Sparks in the film "Supercross” and also shot the lead role in The WB pilot "The Prince” for director Gavin O'Connor.
