Ha! This one has to sting. New York Post:
The author of a best seller about vicious Mafia hit man Richard Kuklinski has pulled the plug on a deal with Hollywood producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who had optioned the rights, because he says he couldn’t stomach the idea of Channing Tatum in the title role.
Ouch. MORE LIKE CHANZING TATUM, AM I RIGHT? (Lazy. Friday.) Still though, haha. Phil Carlo, the author, is a man who has dedicated his life to writing about some of the worst people in the world (I’m talking about the individual subjects he chooses, of course, I’m sure the Mafia is mostly made up of super nice people, please don’t put a car bomb on my bike!) and spends his entire day looking into the black soul of humanity, but when it comes to Channing Tatum in the title role of a shitty Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers 2, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) adaptation of his book, THAT is what he can’t stomach? Right. Blech!
In Mr. Carlo’s defense, it is true that Channing Tatum is not a very good actor.
