Channing Tatum 'had too much to drink' when he agreed to embarrassing scene in Seth Rogen's This Is The End

Channing Tatum 'had too much to drink' when he agreed to embarrassing scene in Seth Rogen's This Is The End

You could say he regrets the role...

Channing Tatum has admitted he probably 'had too much to drink' when he agreed to make a shocking cameo appearance in Seth Rogen's film This Is The End.

The Magic Mike star was one of many celebrity guests to appear in the comedy apocalypse movie, but his role was without a doubt the most embarrassing.

In case you need a little refresher, This Is The End told the story of six friends who get trapped inside a house - James Franco's house, to be specific - when an unholy apocalypse erupts, causing all sorts of carnage.

Channing was pretty embarrassed talking about the role.

Things get out of hand pretty quickly, which is the only explanation necessary for how Danny McBride ends up becoming the leader of a gang of cannibals with his very own gimp on a leash.

In probably the most shocking moment of the whole movie, that gimp takes off his mask to reveal himself as none other than Channing Tatum.

For the role, Channing wore a Mexican wrestling mask and a bizarre Mad Max-style outfit with his butt fully exposed. Oh, and he's on a dog leash too.

Before this film, Channing was mostly known for dance films like Magic Mike and Step Up and romances like Dear John and The Vow.

So, this was definitely a major jump for the actor.

"I probably had too much to drink the night that I got this email at like three in the morning, I think they were already filming," Channing said in an interview with Conan O'Brien.

"I don't know why I even picked [the phone] up. I read the email, it was from Seth Rogen, he doesn't email me!

"He was like, 'Hey, I hope this isn't insulting but we had this idea on the set for a cameo and it involves you, Danny McBride, a Mexican wrestling mask, and a leash."

Channing continued, regret in his voice: "I was just like, 'Yeah, I'll do it, no problem.' And ultimately I had to actually go and do it.

"But that was a terrible idea, probably."

He wasn't really able to say that much about the part, because he's pretty much mentally blocked it out.

"It was an out-of-body experience," he shared.

"As soon as that mask went on, the gimp just came out of me and I don't really remember it."

That's a pretty valid response.

Jonah Hill, who was sitting beside Channing during that interview, admitted it was him who gave Seth Rogen Channing's email address in the first place.

"I was like, he's gonna love this! What do you mean? He's been wanting to stretch and play a different kind of character!"

Funnily enough, that has been Channing's last gimp role - for now.
