The cast for Ron Howard’s comedy Cheaters (although that name is likely to change) is growing ever larger. We already knew Vince Vaughan would play a man torn over whether to tell his best friend (Kevin James), that his wife (Winona Ryder) is cheating on him, and that Jenniffer Connelly would also be in the movie. Now it appears Channing Tatum has signed up too.
THR reports that Tatum has joined the movie, although they have no news on what role he might play. However the actor spoke to MTV, saying “I’m going to shoot a Ron Howard comedy. Ron Howard, Vince Vaughn producing. I just came on kind of late so I don’t exactly even know the whole cast… I haven’t done comedy really. I did it really young in She’s the Man, but I wasn’t really doing the comedy. Amanda Bynes was doing the heavy lifting on that. And I’m hoping Vince Vaughn does the heavy lifting on this one. I’m honored to get to work with the guy.”
Again he doesn’t say what role he’s scored, just teasing that “Most of my scenes are with Vince.I don’t know if I want to [say anything else]. I might want it to be a surprise. [My character is] definitely going to be crazy, that’s for sure.”
