AceShowbiz - %cJames Corden% is a male stripper wannabe in a funny sketch that was played on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" on Wednesday night, September 27. The comedian shows up to audition for "Magic Mike Live", but %cChanning Tatum% doesn't think he has got what it takes to be Magic Mike at first.
Tatum dismisses Corden before he changes his mind and decides to give the host a chance. The British funnyman can barely take off his pants and keeps showing awkward moves during the rehearsal. He accidentally chest bumps another dancer too hard that the man gets pushed back and falls.
He "threw [his] back out]" when trying to copy another dancer's move, but he doesn't give up. His hard work is paid off as Tatum eventually declares he's good enough to perform in front of a live audience.
But that is not the end of the test, since Corden still has to overcome his nervousness. Tatum gives him a pep talk backstage and Corden imitates a "Dirty Dancing" moment. Corden eventually gets his confidence after Tatum gives him a pair of pants with the words "Magic James" printed on them.
Corden manages to pull a show stopping routine with some sexy male strippers, putting the female audience's doubt to rest. Now cocky and full of confidence, Corden decides to ditch the group and dance solo.
Tatum also sat down for an interview with Corden on the show, joined by %cDiego Luna% and %cAdam Scott% as other guests. They talked about their acting roles that required them to dance, prompting Corden to challenge Tatum to a dancing battle. Initially reluctant, the "Logan Lucky" star showed the move that he usually performed at clubs when people asked him to do a dancing battle.
Tatum's new movie "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" has hit theaters across the nation since September 22. The sequel to "Kingsman: The Secret Service" is once again directed by Matthew Vaughn and has the likes of %cColin Firth%, %cTaron Egerton% and %cMark Strong% back in the cast.
