Channing Tatum’s Sexy Black Mask Makes Him the Perfect Christian Grey

OMG 13

Channing Tatum hot maskWhen it comes to finding the perfect candidate to play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, one quality trumps all: Sex appeal. For the record, sex appeal is SO much more than a hot guy. Sex appeal is the entire attitude, the persona, the whole package. Which is why, damn, I am convinced that Channing Tatum has got this gig in the bag.

I mean, take what he did this past weekend to exemplify his pure sexiness. The Magic Mike star threw a celeb-studded pre-Super Bowl party down in New Orleans on Saturday night at a risque little bar named Saints and Sinners. The party? Cool. The HOT factor? His mask. A black mask. One that's so TOTALLY straight out of Christian Grey's bag of tricks.

... and I'm drooling.

I mean, come ON! His whole being just spews hotness. With the mask or without it, I'm convinced that the man has everything it takes for the part. You've seen what he looks like in a suit, right? And we all know he earned People's big 2012 title of Sexiest Man Alive honor. We've watched Channing own some of the sexiest male roles of the past few years, a war veteran in Dear John, a devoted husband in The Vow -- both roles that showed his softer side, one that Christian himself has at times, too. The puzzle pieces, they all just fit together!

At the end of the day, we're still a ways away from finding out who will play Christian in the Fifty Shades movie. But one thing's for sure: I don't think a lot of women would object to seeing Channing strip down on the big screen.

Could you see Channing as Christian Grey? Who is your top pick?

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Channing and am trying not to drool as I BUT. I don't think he is the right man to play Christian. So far Ian is my pick but I could be persuaded to change my mind if someone who I think would fit the part better showed up into the CG casting mix...   I just wish they'd hurry up and pick already...

As long as he keeps the mask on so nobody has to see his face...

JoAnne Carter

No! He is hot but only Ian will do the job. Besides, he has a poochy belly, Christian does not have a poochy belly.
