Is Channing Tatum The Man From U.N.C.L.E.?

Another day, another The Man From U.N.C.L.E. rumor. Deadline is reporting that Channing Tatum is now apparently being eyed for the lead role of the Steven Soderbergh-helmed action-thriller. Tatum recently worked with Soderbergh on the highly anticipated male stripper beefcake-fest known as Magic Mike. George Clooney had to bow out of the U.N.C.L.E. role due to surgery, and since then everyone from Joel Kinnaman to Bradley Cooper has been rumored for the part of Napoleon Solo. No offer to Tatum has been made yet, but he's no stranger to TV-to-film adaptations.
