June 26, 2015:Â Actor Channing Tatum gave his father a cameo role in one of his films after growing tired of his dadâ€™s unsolicited acting advice.
Channing Tatum, the Magic MikeÂ star said that his parents are very supportive of his career, but he has an annoying instinct of reminding him that he’ll never be a movie legend Steve McQueen, according to a report by Contact music.
” He’d say”,”Don’t blink son,Â SteveÂ McQueen,Â he didn’tÂ blink”,Â Tatum said.
Tatum took an effort to show his father that acting isn’t as easy he seemed to think it was, cast his father in an unnamed film, adding, “I was finally tired of hearing about it, I just put him in a movie.”
“I was like, ‘You’re going to do this part and I’m going to see if you don’t blink’. He had a straight-up meltdown. He couldn’t say the words.
“The first take he walks up and he has pretty much two lines and that’s something I knew he could handle and he just (freezes) and I was like, ‘Roll it back, roll it back’, and I started panicking for him and thinking, ‘Oh my God, maybe this was just a really terrible idea putting my dad on the screen’,” the Tatum said.
