After People magazine incurred the wrath of Ryan Gosling fans everywhere by denying him the title of Sexiest Man Alive 2011, it looks like the publication's headed in a wiser direction.
We can see why he'd be one of the names in the running, as the 32-year-old has had a pretty hot year. He's romanced audiences in "The Vow," made them laugh in "21 Jump Street" and given them a striptease in this summer's guilty pleasure, "Magic Mike."
People, of course, is staying mum on whether this year's Sexiest Man is in fact Tatum - or perhaps Gosling, getting his rightful due - until the issue arrives next week. In the meantime, let's discuss: do you think Tatum would be the best choice?
For "Modern Family's" Julie Bowen, at least, there's one man who can do it better.
"Stephen Colbert!" she told People. "Other than my husband, it's Stephen Colbert. My hall pass. He's just so funny."
