Channing Tatum Gives Us a Taste of His Tap Dancing Skills

It's official: Channing Tatum can do it all. This was confirmed when we found out that our favorite dancer/dad/dreamboat is playing a tap-dancing sailor in Hail, Caesar!, the latest film to be corrected by the Coen Brothers, Joel and Ethan. The trailer offers a tiny glimpse of Tatum, clad in a very Fancy Free-esque sailor uniform, hoofing like a pro.

Sliiiiiiding into my heart.

You're perfect, we get it.

But those five seconds of glory aren't nearly enough. So, after a little digging around the Internet, the dance gods #blessed us with this behind-the-scenes video of Tatum rehearsing his tap scenes. Happy weekend, indeed! Check out the full videos below.
