The Wrap shares Channing’s thoughts on the popularity of his digital short.
The “Foxcatcher” star seems bewildered by the attention over the video
Doing press for his first serious Oscar contender movie “Foxcatcher,” Channing Tatum found himself answering questions about a far lighter topic.
Stopped on the red carpet, Tatum could only laugh when E! Online brought up that other buzzy movie getting attention — The Dick Graze. The digital short was released on Monday and has since racked up over a million views on YouTube.

“They had to let it come out today, which is great,” Tatum joked at the Toronto premiere of Bennett Miller‘s “Foxctacher,” a dark drama in which he stars opposite Steve Carell. The actors and the film are expected to be a major players this Oscar season.
“It was just something fun for us to do,” the 34-year-old star said of the serendipitously-timed “Dick Graze” comedy short that’s gone viral. “We were messing around on the ["22 Jump Street"] set in Puerto Rico. It was just crazy. I don’t really have anything intelligent to say about it other than it’s very stupid.”
“Foxcatcher” hits theaters on November 14, meanwhile “The Dick Graze” is currently trending strong on YouTube with over one million views.

MTV Shares this hilarious clip of Channing on the Ellen show!
Wanna take on Channing Tatum and win? Bring porcelain dolls.
No, seriously. The star of “Magic Mike XXL” popped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where, among other things, he revealed that he’s absolutely terrified of those creepy figurines. “They’re really super freaky,” he told the host — which, agreed.
The good samaritan that she is, Ellen set out to help the noted “dick graze” enthusiast conquer his fears the best way she knew how: by shoving two extra-terrifying, gothy-looking porcelain dolls in his face.
C’mon, Ellen, why you gotta do the Chan Man like that?
I thought this was a fun article by BuzzFeed … Which scene did Nicholas Sparks pick as his favorite from Dear John?
Soldiers have been protagonists in more than one of Sparks’ books. Here, Channing Tatum played John, a soldier carrying on a long-distance relationship with Amanda Seyfried’s Savannah, in the Lasse Hallström-directed hit.
“I have to go with the scene of Channing reading these letters with Amanda’s voiceover, as she writes them,” he said. “To me, that’s a wonderful scene because the art of writing is going away. Everyone is emailing now. It was really and truly the last time in which the U.S. Postal Service was this important to people, because now you Skype people. It’s different now for soldiers. For me, it was a last chance to look at the power of the written word.”
To see what other scenes Nicholas picked from his other films go here.
Another press conference for Foxcatcher was held on Monday in Toronto!

Entertainment Weekly shares that Sony is going to go with another Jump Street film!
22 Jump Street is the tenth-highest-grossing movie of the year at the domestic box office–and the highest-grossing movie of the year to feature no superheroes, transformers, monsters, apes, LEGOs, or Maleficents. Unsurprisingly, Deadline reports that Sony is working on a Jump Street threequel (a possibility that 22 Jump Street teasingly joked about.)
The studio has hired writer Rodney Rothman, who was one of the four credited writers on 22 Jump Street. It’s unclear at this point whether directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will helm the threequel, but they are already onboard as producers.
