Channing Tatum will be receiving the trailblazer award at the upcoming MTV Movie Awards. Tatum is known for his work on films such as, Step Up, Magic Mike and the upcoming Jupiter Ascending. Mila Kunis will be presenting the award to her Ascending co-star.
The Hollywood Reporter added that Tatum will be the third actor to receive this award. Previous honorees include Emma Watson and Emma Stone.
Stephen Friedman, president of MTV, spoke about why Tatum was the perfect fit for this high honor. "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," said Friedman.
The MTV Movie Awards will be hosted by Conan O'Brien and will air on MTV on Sunday April 13th starting at 9 p.m.
CBS reported that Tatum has a busy filming scheduling coming up. His schedule includes reprising his role in 21 Jump Street for 22 Jump Street and starring in the upcoming Magic Mike 2.
