Magic Mike's Channing Tatum has landed the role of Gambit in future X-Men movies. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed the news to Total Film (WATCH), saying of the star, "He's a rogue, he's a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau (Gambit). ...He can handle the action-- as we know -- and he's got a really good heart, 'cause I know him personally."
Donner added, "He'll be great for Gambit, and he's a southerner too ...he understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans."
