Uploaded on Monday 7 February 2011


When you think of Channing Tatum you don’t think of Roman soldiers and swords-and-sandals epic tales. You think of romance (“Dear John”), or action (“G.I. Joe”), or heck, even a dance movie like “Step Up.” But guess what?

*** Why he chose to make “The Eagle”
*** How director Kevin Macdonald’s films influence his decision in joining the cast
*** How he prepared for the role
*** The biggest challenge in making “The Eagle”
*** What went through his mind upon learning that the Roman soldiers would be played by American actors
