Eye Candy: Channing Tatum in The Eagle

6'1" Channing Matthew Tatum was born April 26, 1980 in Alabama.

Tatum's first "big break" was being cast as a dancer in Ricky Martin's "She Bangs" music video.  From there, he went on to work as a model and an actor in commercials.

These images are of Tatum as Marcus Flavius Aquila in The Eagle.  His impressive physique and experience as a dancer make him a perfect choice for sword and sandal films.  I hope he'll be able to do more of them.

Yet More Spartacus Auctions!

VIP Fan Clubs continues to list more and more awesome props and costumes from Spartacus for auction!

Here are two stunning gowns worn by Lucy Lawless as Lucretia and Viva Bianca as Ilythia.

This is a full set of Roman armour worn by Jared Turner as Furius.  There is also a separate auction for some stunt elements of the costume.

Here is a Roman helmet worn by Craig Parker as Glaber.  I love the detail of the spider!

Here is an iconic mask used in Gods of the Arena.

I really like these unique props.  The wax tablet was used by Simon Merrells as Crassus and the vexilla regis (banner) was made for John Wraight as Cossinius.

This is a costume worn by Nick Tarabay as Ashur.

Here is an amazingly detailed costume worn by Daniel Feuerriegel as Agron.  The costumers must have had a lot of fun putting together the various textures and pieces.

Here's another incredibly detailed ensemble worn by Dustin Clare as Gannicus.  The little splashes of colour are terrific.  They really make the costume "pop" on screen.

Finally, here's a great costume worn by Manu Bennett as Crixus.
