With Native American, Irish, and French heritage it’s no wonder that handsome Tatum was discovered on the streets of Miami. He signed with a modeling agency that got him in ads for the biggest brands such as Nautica, Gap, American Eagle Outfitters and Abercrombie & Fitch. His first video role was dancing in Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs” music video. Tatum also starred in a few TV commercials for Pepsi and Mountain Dew. But until he was able to actually make a living from acting so he worked as a bricklayer, broker, and stripper. He has earned several belts in Kung Fu and Gor-Chor Kung Fu.
