Stripper in the House: Who else would you want to play a secret service agent (who must save the President) than a former stripper? Channing Tatum has already starred in romantic drama The Vow and comedy 21 Jump Street (above, with Jonah Hill) this year, with a role as a stripper in Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike and a soldier in G.I. Joe: Retaliation forthcoming. Now he’s in “advanced talks” to lead Roland Emmerich’s action thriller White House Down, which is still looking for a Commander in Chief and secret service head. Any takers, ladies? [Showblitz]

Tweet for a Tease: As an incentive to go see The Dictator as soon as possible, “Ron Burgundy” tweeted that a teaser trailer for Anchorman 2 will be screening before the feature, starting at midnight tonight. Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, and Paul Rudd are all returning for the sequel to Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, along with director and co-writer Adam McKay. [Via press release]

Delay, Delay: We’ve been anticipating Gravity, director Alfonso Cuarón’s follow-up to the great Children of Men, for quite a long time, but the release date of November 21 has been postponed until sometime in 2013. The sci-fi film stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as two astronauts lost in space; the culprit is evidently concern about a lack of available 3D IMAX screens later in the year. [Entertainment Weekly]

Behind the Scenes: Set to open the Cannes Film Festival tomorrow, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom stars Edward Norton, Bill Murray, and Bruce Willis in a tale somehow related to young love. Bob Balaban, who serves as narrator in the film, explains what’s going on, kinda, in the clip below that highlights Murray's character. [The Playlist]
