Duck Dynasty may be getting some pretty good-looking company on A&E.

Channing Tatum is putting on his producer's cap and developing an hour-long reality pilot for the cable network that will focus on the restaurant-bar Saints & Sinners on Bourbon Street in New Orleans.

Tatum's interest in the place – which is fashioned after a red-light-district bordello during the riverfront city's Storyville era – is because he and his business-partner friend Keith Kurtz opened it last fall, reports EW.com.

First time dad-to-be Channing Tatum is already in baby mode – studying books and watching documentaries.

But there's one thing he's still lacking: mastering the art of diapering.

"I have never changed a diaper before, so I may need some help learning," Tatum, 32, told PEOPLE at Thursday's New York premiere of his new movie Side Effects, presented by the Cinema Society and Michael Kors.

"I don't have friends who have kids, so it's going to be an interesting experience to learn how to change a diaper. I hope I don't have any problems where the diaper falls off and the baby [poops] on the ground," said PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive, whose baby with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum, 32, is due this summer.

"I feel fine. I really do," McConaughey, 43, tells The Daily Beast in a new interview, noting that his regime to lose nearly 40 lbs. from his 183-lb. frame was healthy, disciplined and well thought-out.

Channing Tatum's male stripper film, Magic Mike, may not open until Friday – but some lucky fans in New York City got an early preview of the actor's moves Wednesday.

During an appearance on NBC's Today show to promote the movie, Tatum, 32, participated in a flash mob with a slew of backup dancers in Rockefeller Plaza, doing a choreographed routine to a slowed-down version of "It's Raining Men." (Watch video below!)

The impromptu performance seemingly forced hosts Ann Curry and Al Roker to quickly get out of the way of the troupe.

Matthew McConaughey Didn't Use a 'Stunt A––' in Magic Mike

Originally posted 05/17/2012 08:50AM

When Matthew McConaughey gets cheeky in his new movie, Magic Mike, rest assured, it's definitely him.

"That's all me up there," the actor tells the Advocate in a new interview of (mostly) baring it all in his striptease scene. "I don't need a stunt a––."

As for the exposure, the actor says he just wanted to go for it.

"I said, 'I gotta dance, man.' I would regret it for the rest of my life if I was in a male stripper movie and didn't get up there and strip myself," he says, noting that his big scene wasn't initially in the script. "At first it was scary as hell, but then it became like a drug and I couldn't wait to do it again."
