If Channing Tatum Is Named 'Sexiest Man Alive,' He HAS to Play Christian Grey

Channing TatumThe announcement isn't expected to be made until mid-November, but this morning, there are quite a few reports saying that Channing Tatum will be named People's Sexiest Man Alive 2012. (Man. That Jenna Dewan is one lucky woman.)

Whether you're a huge Channing Tatum fan or not is neither here nor there, because it's pretty hard to argue that he's one serious piece of eye candy who is more than deserving of People's highly coveted title.

And if the rumor is true and he does wind up in the top spot, then he just HAS to be cast as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie -- hands down.

I mean, how can anyone other than the "Sexiest Man Alive" be cast in the role of the sexiest man in adult fiction? Channing is one seriously gorgeous hunk of a man, which already gave him a leg up on the competition as far as landing the role goes. But with People deeming him the best of the best? Yeah -- that should pretty much seal the deal as far as making him one of the top contenders goes.

Of course, some might argue that while he has everything going for him in the looks department, he doesn't have quite as much acting experience to back him up as some other potential Christian Greys do, such as Alexander Skarsgard, Ryan Gosling, and Ian Somerhalder

But you have to admit, whatever he lacks as far as serious acting experience, he more than makes up for with those chiseled, sexy muscles of his. (Yum.)

Do you think Channing Tatum would make a good Christian Grey? And do you think he's worthy of the "Sexiest Man Alive" title?

    Channing might be sexi, but I'm not sure he possesses the mystery that is needed to play for Christian Grey...I'm still gonna go with Ian :)
