He's good. Funny and relaxed. Smiles at his own jokes, which deflates them of any real harm. Loved the Ron Jeremy reference, laughed at the Rihanna/Chris Brown joke, like the crack about Meryl not being nominated.

You will so thank me for these. And I have to thank datalounge.com for the tip. Here's one shot of Channing Tatum's perfectly delightful raw behind in The Vow.
SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! At one crucial point in the new action comedy--based on the old TV show--a guy gets shot in the crotch, his noodle falls off, and he picks it up in his mouth! It's straight out of John Waters. And there's plenty of genital stuff before that too.
Magic Mike is the upcoming, eagerly awaited Soderbergh film based on Channing Tatum's time spent as a male ecdysiast. Tatum plays a mentor to the character based on himself, played by Alex Pettyfer. Matthew McConaughey (above) is the stripper-turned-shirtless-club owner. And here are some leaked, ... More >>

...she'd be Queen Bee! Yes, it's time for THAT fun little parlor game again, the one where you marry off two celebs that would make for a felicitously wacky new name. And so--with respects to my colleague Cindy Adams, who's perfected this sort of thing:
