Channing Tatum

Though last month brought news that Jennifer Jason Leigh was taking the lead female role in Quentin Tarantino's forthcoming western The Hateful Eight, we're still waiting to see how the rest of the cast shakes out. While Samuel L. Jackson and Kurt Russell have pretty much been confirmed as reprising their roles from the live reading of the script from April, the rest of the names have yet to be officially added. And it sounds like all of them might not make the cut as Deadline reports Channing Tatum, who was not part of the live reading, is circling a major role in the project slated to start shooting in January of next year.

The source also names Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and Tim Roth as being in the cast, but I don't think they've been officially confirmed yet. As for the role Tatum would take, there's no indication as to what character it might be, but there's quite an ensemble here. Since the year is almost out, surely we'll be getting official word on the cast soon enough. Don't forget, the film will be shot on 65mm and will get the widest physical film release in more than 20 years, thanks to The Weinstein Company. With Gambit heating up, 23 Jump Street in the works and Magic Mike XXL shooting now, Tatum isn't slowing down anytime soon.

Hell Yeah. He would be very cool as a cowboy. Bad or good. This role should fit like a glove.

One word: why? 'Foxcatcher' looks promising, but it's a role that suits him. So far he hasn't proven to be a good actor, or did I miss something?
