Channing Tatum has signed on to play ‘Gambit’ in a new ‘X-Men’ movie spinoff. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner stated, “He’s a rogue, Channing. He’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau…and he can handle the action, we all know that. And he’s got a really good heart. … So I think he’ll be great for Gambit.”

Tatum expressed his interest in playing ‘Gambit’ before casting by saying, “There’s a lot of superheroes out there. I’d like to play Gambit…because I’m from New Orleans, around that area, and my dad’s from New Orleans, and I like to do the Cajun accent. He also stated, “Gambit was always like the woman-loving, cigarette-smoking, drinking — you know, he was the punk rock of all the superheroes.”
