James Corden Lives Out His 'Magic Mike' Dreams With The Help Of Channing Tatum

Introducing "Magic James."

James Corden is always willing to try new things with his celebrity guests, and this week he teamed up with Channing Tatum to train for his Las Vegas show Magic Mike Live.

Corden, who previously danced on the Late Late Show with Tatum's wife Jenna Dewan Tatum, showed up for the show's auditions and received a skeptical welcome from the star. "I don't know if you're exactly Magic Mike material," he said.


Of course, Corden was determined to prove him wrong, and Tatum was, fortunately, willing to train him. The first move on the agenda was pants removal, which Corden had just a little bit of trouble nailing. His gyrating was also slightly clumsy, and he had more than a little difficulty getting up off the floor.

Eventually, after a lot of hard work, "Magic James" was finally ready to make his stage debut, complete with the sequined briefs to match.

It's safe to say Corden proved his doubters wrong. He was so good, in fact, that Tatum offered him a job. "You gotta come out on the road," he said after the performance.

Corden, however, had other plans. Don't be surprised if you see a solo "Magic James" show in the future.
