These days, it seems that Channing Tatum has got his fingers in all the pies. That's why the following piece of information about Hollywood's golden boy is all the more surprising!

On Wednesday, Channing appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and revealed that back in the mid-2000s, he auditioned for a role in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and completely failed to land it. Need a reminder? Here's the trailer:

Chatting to Jimmy, he relayed what went so wrong:

“I stopped in the middle of the audition, like, ‘I think we’re done, right?’ I blocked it out so I don’t remember the specifics, but it was a combination of me being just bad, not remembering the lines, totally freaked out. I was probably sweating a lot. They didn’t even try to stop me.”

Although he admitted that it would have been great to get the role, Tatum also said that the main reason he auditioned in the first place was so he would get the chance to drift around Tokyo. To this, Jimmy hilariously replied:

“Is that a good sign when you’re picking a film based on where you’d like to vacation?”
