In “GI Joe: Revenge” Channing Tatum begged for his character to be killed.
The news broke during a lie detector test for Vanity Fair, when the “Step Up” star was asked if he’d only requested to make a brief appearance as Duke in the 2013 film, inspired by the toy line. GI Joe.
Then, Channing confirmed that he didn’t want to appear in the sequel to «GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra», also starring Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis.
«In the first film I passed out seven times, but I had a contract and I had to finish. I didn’t even think about participating in the second episode,” commented Channing Tatum.
Elsewhere in the test, the actor was asked if he was “angry” at Steven Soderbergh, who he collaborated with on the “Magic Mike” films, for not casting him in the “Ocean’s 11” franchise.
“No, I didn’t know Steven then. If they did more episodes now and he didn’t consider me, then yes, I would be angry,” said the 42-year-old.
