You might just want to have an oscillating fan at the ready,dDespite the December weather, because we're about to make you sweat. Or, more accurately, our carefully curated collection of Channing Tatum's best moments from 2012 may cause you to spike a fever, seeing as the Chan Man's year was hot hot HOT. From nearly a half dozen films to ascending the Sexiest Man Alive throne, the 32-year-old was everywhere—and looking damn fine doing it. But what was his crowning achievement this calendar year? You tell us by voting in our poll after the jump!
And the nominees are:
Taking "The Vow"
Channing started off the year by laying bare his soft side (and his bottom!) in this drama about a woman suffering from amnesia and the husband she can't seem to remember. (We, for one, will never forget that butt shot!)
In February, the actor took to the Studio 8H stage to give us a preview of his "Magic Mike" moves, shimmying and shaking during an eye-popping monologue. We liked it.
"Magic Mike" Manmeat
It had been six years since Channing first broke onto the scene busting moves in the dance classic "Step Up," and we nearly forgot how limber he is. What a pleasant, pleasant reminder this striptastic tale was.
People's Sexiest Man Alive
Following in the footsteps of Bradley Cooper, George Clooney and Brad Pitt, Channing was named the tastiest eye candy of 2012. Mmm, mmm good.
Whether you're naughty or nice, there'll be a table for you at Mr. Tatum's new Big Easy restaurant Saints & Sinners, which opened its doors (and flipped on its red light) in November.
