Actor Channing Tatum is clearly a man of many talents. In recent years, he has proved just how great at dancing and stripping he is in Magic Mike and its sequel Magic Mike XXL. Those are some talents (and abs) anyone would kill to have. Tatum's commitment to dance was tested on Lip Sync Battle though.
