Channing Tatum might have starred in a “Fast and Furious” film … if he hadn’t bombed the audition.
The “Magic Mike” star revealed his worst audition of all time on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday night.
“That was “Fast and Furious 3: Tokyo Drift,” Tatum said when asked about his worst audition experience. “I wanted to go to Tokyo very badly. I wanted to drift Tokyo.”
Jimmy Kimmel then asked the actor, who was on the show promoting his new Coen brothers film “Hail, Caesar!,” if it was a good idea to pick movie roles based on where he wanted to vacation. Tatum said the audition grew so bad that he stopped and walked out before it even ended.
“I stopped in the middle of the audition. I was like ‘I think we’re done, right? This is terrible,'” he said. “I don’t even know if it was — I blocked it out, mainly so I don’t remember the specifics. I think it was a combination of me being just bad, not remembering the lines, totally freaking out, I was probably sweating a lot.”
The late night host joked that he liked the message that Tatum was sending to the kids, saying, “People say ‘keep fighting.’ No, just cut bait and give up!”
