It was announced Wednesday that actor and producer Channing Tatum will receive the Trailerblazer Award at this year’s MTV Movie Awards ceremony.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the honorary award for career achievement will be presented to Tatum by Jupiter Ascending co-star Mila Kunis. The 33-year-old star is the first male recipient following Emma Stone in 2012 and Emma Watson in 2013.
MTV President Stephen Friedman released in a statement, “Channing Tatum is the quintessential leading man for the MTV audience. He proves that an action hero can have both a quick wit and a large heart. Whether he's baring his soul in 'The Vow,' his chest in 'Magic Mike,' or his humor in '21 Jump Street,' Channing proves that by committing everything, you can accomplish anything."
CBS News notes that Tatum certainly has earned this distinguishable prize with several projects in the works this year, including 22 Jump Street, Foxcatcher and The Book of Life. Production on a sequel to Magic Mike is expected to take place soon as well.
Conan O’Brien will host The MTV Movie Awards airing at 9pm ET on MTV, April 19.
