From the production notes of Fighting:
Channing Tatum was born in Alabama and grew up in Florida. He began modeling at age 21 and, at age 23, he starred in an international Pepsi commercial directed by Tarsem Singh, and two highly popular national Mountain Dew commercials directed by Kinka Usher. His natural charisma and athleticism in these commercials brought him to the attention of both extreme-sports fans and Hollywood industry executives.
