Channing Tatum's recent impression of his fellow actor has got talk show host David Letterman begging him to stop.
David Letterman didn't know what he was getting himself into when he asked for Channing Tatum's impression of Mathew McConaughey, but once the actor began Letterman wasn't afraid of asking the actor to stop.
During his chat with Tatum on Wednesday night, Letterman insisted that Tatum offer up his impression of Mathew McConaughey, whom the actor recently co-starred alongside in the new film "Magic Mike." Letterman argued that Matt Damon was willing to impersonate McConaughey and therefore he should as well.
"Oh uh, I don't think I'm in the pantheon of Matt Damon," a hesitant Tatum said at first before he cut right in to a genuine sounding, "Alright alright. I see a lot of lovely ladies in the house tonight. I like that."
The audiences reaction was immediate, as Tatum most accurately nailed McConaughey's Texas slang.
"How you doin' Mr. Lettermen. You doin' alright tonight?" Tatum continued to a hysterical Letterman, who was quick to begin squirming in his seat.
"Yah I'm doing just fine," Letterman responded to Tatum in an uneasy voice.
Tatum is ready to continue with the entertainment but Letterman is forced to stop the actor, saying it was just getting too "creepy."
Both Tatum and McConaughey are set to star in the upcoming film "Magic Mike," a film about a veteran stripper, Tatum, teaching a novice the ropes. The film takes place at a club owned by Dallas, who is played by McConaughey.
McConaughey made headlines for the film during an interview in which he stated that he decided to strip at the end of the film despite the fact that it was not in the script.
"It wasn't in the script, but [director Steven Soderbergh] said in the beginning that if it felt right, I could strip at the end of the movie," McConaughey told The Advocate. "I would regret it for the rest of my life if I was in a male stripper movie and didn't get up there and strip myself."
