Channing Tatum along with James Corden have plans for a fresh take on the “Carpool Karaoke” formula which might just shake things up.
The stars sat down with ET’s Nischelle Turner while promoting their upcoming animated family comedy, Smallfoot, along with jokingly dished on the unique take on the well-known Late Late Show segment they’d like to bring to the table.
“I wanna do the first carpool dance,” Tatum said.
“‘Dance-pool Karaoke,'” Corden said, riffing on possible names for the fresh variation of the sketch.
“I wanna tip the automobile over, I’m dancing so hard,” Tatum added.
The actor has long been known for his love of dance. Kicking off with his breakthrough role in 2006’s Step Up, the 38-year-old star has displayed his talent for fancy footwork numerous times in movies like Magic Mike along with Hail, Caesar!
Given which, Corden said he only saw one problem with the “Dance-Pool Karaoke” plan — despite his extensive background in musical theater, he might have trouble keeping up.
“I can’t dance like This kind of guy,” Corden explained.
Here’s hoping Tatum along with Corden manage to take a ride together from the Carpool Karaoke SUV one way or another.
from the meantime, the pair are currently starring in Smallfoot, an animated family comedy which tells the story of a Yeti named Migo (Tatum), who discovers which the illusive creature known as the “smallfoot” – a.k.a. a human – might be more than just a myth.
Tatum — who has previously done some great voice acting work in films like The Book of Life along with The LEGO Movie — said his 5-year-old daughter, Everly, truly connected with his character because of how much of himself Tatum brought to the role.
“I’m very silly in This kind of movie along with which’s basically how I am with her, so she truly, truly identified with the idea,” explained the actor, who said his little girl recognized his voice from the movie right away.
However, which doesn’t mean she was necessarily impressed by her dad being on the big screen. In fact, Tatum — who shares his little girl with ex Jenna Dewan — said his daughter “just doesn’t like any of my movies at all.”
“She doesn’t think they’re real movies,” he added using a laugh.
As for Corden — who shares three children with wife Julia Carey: 7-year-old son Max, 3-year-old daughter Carey, along with 3-month-old daughter Charlotte — he said his children “truly enjoyed” the film along with its message of not judging a book by its cover along with embracing people for their differences.
“They absolutely loved the idea,” Corden shared. “My son, who’s seven, was truly taken with the idea along with had lots of questions afterwards along with they were Great questions, they’re the right questions which you want kids to ask after the film.”
Smallfoot — which also features the vocal talents of Zendaya, Gina Rodriguez, Danny DeVito, Common, LeBron James along with Yara Shahidi — hits theaters Sept 28.
