Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx have been all over town this past week promoting their summer action thriller, White Ho use Down.
Not that theres anything wrong with that.
Foxx even made headlines for stepping out with ex-Miami Housewife Cristy Rice, as per her Instagram account, which had a picture of the two cuddling, with the caption, Its not every day you get kisses from the President.
She was referring to Foxxs role in the Roland Emmerich explosive shoot em up about homegrown terrorists taking over the White House. Tatum, as John Cale, happens to be on the premises for a job interview to be on President Sawyers detail. And good thing he is, because Cale not only saves the day, but the world.
You could tell the two guys had fun filming, even though there were some painful stunts involved.
I got a deep butt-cheek bruise when I get flipped over on the roof onto my back, Tatum said from the Soho Beach House. I fell on my butt from about nine feet, and it didnt go away for about a month and a half. It was deep.
OK, we werent going to inquire if the injury was on the left or right side, because the Magic Mike hunk seemed in perfectly fine shape.
The chemistry between Foxx and Tatum was so good, they wouldnt mind going for round two.
It was too much fun, said Tatum, who just had a baby girl with wife Jenna Dewan. We got some outtakes that I want to release just because I need someone to see them. Theyre absolutely hilarious. I hope we get to do it again.
Whats great about him is hes not too guarded, said the Oscar winner ( Ray) about his costar. You know some celebrities are very, very guarded? He loves to give it to the people and let them enjoy it. Thats what I appreciated, and thats why we click.
The men are no strangers to South Florida. Tatum, 33, got his start here as a model.
I lived right on Collins between 11th and 12th, he recounted. We passed by it. They made it a little nicer looking, but Im sure its still a little s---hole inside. I had my bed and my sofa right next to each other and from there I could reach into the kitchen sink.
Foxx, 45, filmed such movies as Any Given Sunday as well as Miami Vice here.
I love it; theres nothing like this spot.
So we had to ask: Would President Barack Obama approve of this movie? They arent sure, but they said he was definitely invited to the premiere. Hes got a little on his plate right now, said Tatum, but we sent a copy of the movie over to him.
Foxx, who studied past political speeches to get the tone right, is hoping a few perks come from the role. A presidential pardon, maybe?
That would be nice, he said, laughing.
Adds Tatum: If thats the case, there are a few things I could talk to him about.
