The 35-year-old "Magic Mike XXL" stars Says he was praying that the 'Kill Bill' maker does not cast anyone else in the role, said The Hollywood Reporter.

"I basically sent about an email a day for about a month just threatening any other actors that might be up for the role. I was just praying that no one really tough was up for the role. I'm so happy that he didn't say, 'Well Mike Tyson is up for this role'," Tatum said.

He also remembered his first table read with the film's stars, when he "almost killed one of the best actors of our time."

Tatum said that during the table read, he and Dern had to shake hands for a scene from the film.

"I made this really dumb, over-zealous decision and I pull him in really close, and this is at a table read, and I almost pull Bruce Dern out of his chair and he's like, 'You jerk! You almost pulled by arm out of the socket!'"

"I'm like, 'Oh my god. I just almost killed one of the best actors of our time.' And I'm mortified," he added. The film also stars Samuel L Jackson, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen.
