Last summer, the Sexiest Man of the Year said he'd be down to suit up as Christian Grey. Asked by the U.K. edition of Glamour magazine if he'd star in the big screen version of E.L.

Things might have changed now that Tatum and his wife, actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum, are expecting their first child. In December, Tatum also said that he's shifting his focus from acting to directing, at least for a little while. "I love the steps that I've taken acting-wise. That has been a wild sort of exploration," he told Entertainment Weekly. "But I don't want to just keep putting [directing] off for these fun and incredible opportunities."
