Hollywood actresses often go blond, but it's rarer for men to bleach out their locks. Channing Tatum is the exception. For a role in the upcoming film "Jupiter Ascending," the brunette star of "Magic Mike" and "21 Jump Street" sports blond locks, a goatee, and perhaps strangest of all, prosthetic pointy Spock ears.
Channing Tatum shooting a scene from "Jupiter Ascending" in Joliet, Ill. His fake ears and blond hair are a new look for the actor.
Tatum plays Caine, a half-albino warrior with wolf DNA (probably explaining the pointy ears). He stars in the sci-fi film along with Mila Kunis, who plays a janitor who learns she has a genetic destiny to fulfill. The film is being directed by Lana and Andy Wachowski, best known for "The Matrix" movies.
Some photos show co-star Kunis laughing at Tatum's pointy ear add-ons. And Britain's Daily Mail said the ears gave Tatum a "slightly elvish" appearance.
"Jupiter Ascending" is set for a July 2014 release.
