Actor Channing Tatum is ready to show his mutant side.
The “White House Down” star will be playing the card-throwing Cajun mutant Remy LeBeau aka Gambit in an upcoming “X-Men” flick.
She added, “And he's a Southerner too … he understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans."
No word yet if Gambit will join the "X-Men" ensemble "X-Men: Apocalypse" (in theaters 2016) or appear in a stand-alone film.
Tatum will next be seen in the comedy sequel “22 Jump Street” and the sci-fi thriller “Jupiter Ascending.”
