In August 2009, Tatum was seen in the box office hit, G.I. Joe, directed by Stephen Sommers. Tatum starred opposite Sienna Miller, Marlon Wayans, and Dennis Quaid.

In April 2009, he starred opposite Terrence Howard in Fighting, the second film Tatum and Montiel made together. Tatum starred as Sean Arthur, a young man struggling to survive on the streets of New York when he is discovered by a veteran street hustler (Howard) and lured into a dangerous world of underground street fighting.

In March 2006, Tatum starred in the searing drama, Stop/Loss for critically acclaimed director Kimberly Pierce (Boys Don't Cry) and producer Scott Rudin. Also, in 2006, he received an Independent Spirit nomination and a Gotham nomination for his powerful role in the independent film, A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, which won the Special Jury Prize for Best Ensemble Performance, as well as the dramatic directing award for Montiel, at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. The film was written and directed by Montiel, based on his 2003 memoir of the same title and was Tatum's and Montiel's first collaboration.

This powerful coming-of-age drama takes place in 1980s Astoria, Queens and follows Montiel's impoverished and violent life from his youth (portrayed by Shia LaBeouf) to adulthood (portrayed by Robert Downey, Jr.). His father is played by Chazz Palminteri and Tatum plays the role of Antonio, Dito's best friend. Newsday called Tatum's performance "charismatic,” with Daily Variety going on to say that "Tatum creates a powerful study of a self-destructive street guy trapped with no good options.” 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.” The Boston Herald referred to his performance as "Robert De Niro-esque” and The New York Times wrote "Mr. Tatum, who has the bullish physicality of a young Brando, is an electrifying actor, and I suspect we'll be seeing a lot more of him after this breakout performance.”

In March 2006, Tatum starred opposite Amanda Bynes in She's the Man, directed by Andy Flickman and produced by Lauren Shuler Donner. Later that year, Tatum starred in the box office hit, Step Up, directed by Anne Fletcher and produced by Adam Shankman. The film centers around Tyler Gage, played by Tatum, a street smart juvenile delinquent who gets sentenced to community service at a high school for the performing arts.

Tatum was born in Alabama and grew up in Florida.
