In his upcoming action-thriller White House Down, Channing Tatum is tasked with saving the U.S. President (portrayed by Jamie Foxx) from a paramilitary group, which requires some wild heroics.
On the set of White House Down, in theaters June 28, ET caught up with Tatum and discussed his action-packed role as police officer "John Cale" and the physical demand of the role's stunts.
"It's a dirty job," Tatum reveals. "...Your day wakes up when you start getting slammed and thrown around a kitchen and jumping around an elevator shaft, so it's fun."
Although he enjoyed the action-filled stunts, his big-screen rival, played by Jason Clarke, takes some serious battering, which was unfortunately not just experienced by Clarke's character.
"Channing was big and he was strong," Clarke said. "The reality of that is two broken ribs and a badly twisted ankle."
