Channing Tatum is going from action hero to romantic leading man. After taking on the enemy in last summer’s G.I. Joe, the sexy star is pairing up with Mamma Mia’s Amanda Seyfried in Nicholas Sparks’s love story Dear John.
In real-life, Tatum is happily married to his Step Up co-star Jenna Dewan. Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf found out that Tatum was ready for some emotional intensity.
“I already knew that Nicholas Sparks could push all the buttons after seeing the film they did on his first novel, The Notebook. My wife and I watch the DVD and she looks up at me at the exact same moment…”
Julianna Margulies’s Emmy-winning role on ER was a hard act to follow, but the 43-year-old actress has made a triumphant return to primetime with The Good Wife.
The hit CBS series, which helped earn the actress a Golden Globe and SAG Award, has Margulies playing a wife and mom who goes back to work as an attorney after her husband goes to jail in the midst of a very public sex and corruption scandal. Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf found out that it’s not just the accolades driving her to do good work.

“For me, personal health is very much a personal matter. I had every intention of keeping the fact that I had cancer quiet, but because the award shows were imminent, I figured I’d better make a statement. Lucky for me, I’m able to assure everyone that I’m really on the road to recovery. I’ve had a lot of people reach out to me who I wouldn’t have heard from…”
Josh Duhamel didn’t find romance in last summer’s action blockbuster Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, but he’s making up for it in When in Rome, sharing some serious lip-locking with Kristen Bell.

“The joke in When in Rome is that all these guys are stalking Kristen Bell’s character because she grabbed the coins they threw into a fountain in Rome. I could relate. That’s how I got my wife. I literally stalked her…”
Mel Gibson is returning to theaters after a seven-year absence. In Edge of Darkness, Gibson stars as a tough Boston detective whose life falls apart after his only daughter is brutally murdered under mysterious circumstances.
Has Gibson fallen from grace, or will audiences welcome his undeniably explosive presence in a suspenseful thriller? Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf found out why he’s willing to take the chance.
“I just got the itch. I walked away after Signs because I just felt I was a bit stale and acting wasn’t ringing my bells. So I focused on directing, writing and producing. I got the bug again because I felt like, all of a sudden, after all these years…”
