The 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' actor tries to prove his dancing skill by reenacting a scene from 'Dirty Dancing' and lifting Fred Armisen.
Gearing up for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig, Channing Tatum is giving a taste of his comedic chops in a promo for the upcoming episode of the variety show. The Jenko of "21 Jump Street" teams up with Fred Armisen in some sketches, including the one which sees him getting trouble pronouncing his name.
In another sketch, Tatum and Armisen reenact an iconic move from "Dirty Dancing". "Hey, I heard you're a really good dancer, but are you a good dirty dancer?" the "SNL" regular asks before testing the "Magic Mike" actor's dancing skill.
"No one puts baby in the corner!" Armisen shouts while he is running into Tatum. The husband of Jenna Dewan tells the comedian, "Wrong movie, dude. Wrong movie!" but lifts him up anyway.
"SNL" featuring Tatum as the host will air this Saturday, February 4 at 11:30 P.M. ET on NBC. Tapped as the musical performer is Bon Iver.
