If you guessed Channing Tatum, you are right!  The 32-year-old hunk, who will be stripping down alongside Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew Bomer and Joe Manganiello in a theater near you, grew up in Alabama and Mississippi, where he ended up swinging from poles for money.

After dropping out of college, he was discovered by a modeling scout in Miami and enjoyed a successful career as a male model and dancer before landing himself roles in movies such as Havoc, Coach Carter and Step Up.

Now married to his Step Up costar Jenna Dewan, the in-demand actor has his pick of movie roles – including paying homage to his stripping days.
