Channing Tatum is making history at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, as the first male to ever receive the Trailblazer award.

"Channing Tatum is the quintessential leading man for the MTV audience," said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV. "He proves that an action hero can have both a quick wit and a large heart. Whether he's baring his soul in The Vow, his chest in Magic Mike, or his humor in 21 Jump Street, Channing proves that by committing everything, you can accomplish anything."

Tatum remains one of Hollywood's most in-demand actors. This year he will reprise his role as Jenko in 22 Jump Street in addition to starring in Jupiter Ascending with Mila Kunis and Foxcatcher with Steve Carell.

Previous MTV Trailblazer winners include Emma Watson and Emma Stone.

The 2014 MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Conan O'Brien, airs Sunday, April 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT from Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre L.A. Live.
