Channing Tatum's intense role in The Son of No One

January 21st, 2011

Channing Tatum's new movie 'The Son of No One' is "intense".

The 'Dilemma' actor stars in the film - directed by his three time collaborator Dito Montiel - which will close this week's Sundance Film Festival - and Channing warned the action thriller about two men forced to relive two murders they committed during their youth will shock viewers and surprise fans of co-star Tracy Morgan.

He said: "It's an intense movie. I think Tracy Morgan is going to shock the world. Nobody has ever seen him do drama or anything like that."

Tracy added he was excited at playing a different type of role and said he was happy to branch out from his usual comedy.

He explained to MTV News: "I feel it's an opportunity that I want to really take advantage of. I want to grow as an artist, as a person, and I understand my limitations. Comedy is a comfort zone for me and I don't mind coming out of my comfort zone."

Channing stars in the movie as young cop Jonathan White, nicknamed 'Milk' whose life is turned upside down when he is assigned to a precinct in the working class neighbourhood he grew up and where the murders occurred.

Tracy- who plays his friend Vinnie - explained: "There's a real bond between these guys. One's life went in one direction, which is very successful, and the other friend, which is my character, went in a really messed-up direction."

The movie also stars Katie Holmes, Al Pacino and Juliette Binoche.
