Watch out, James Franco.

Another Hollywood hunk has donned Marilyn Monroe drag, and this one felt comfortable in it.

It's for a "goof-off scene" in Magic Mike, based on Tatum's real-life stripping adventures.

The actor dresses like Marilyn and tries to charm the sister of his new stripping protege (played by Alex Pettyfer).

And Tatum says this was nothing new for him; he did Marilyn drag in real life once too, in order to goof on somebody.

He bum-rushed his friend's table at Denny's to help the guy celebrate his birthday. The friend was mortified.

But Tatum laughingly adds that humping Jonah Hill in 21 Jump Street was an even gayer experience.

OK, Tatum, I've got a proposition for you.

I'll do Marilyn. You do the humping.

I think "Magic Mike" will do better on DVD than in the theaters - just how many bridal showers are help at movie theaters anyway? Be interesting to see the numbers after the opening weekend.

Yes, they should leave Marilyn to you !!   They really are flogging this thing in the gay press, but nobody's seen it.  Hmmmmm.  I'll pay to see it.

Hmm he's losing his hotness. I dunno he just doesn't have that um\mph factor for me anymore. Its not the drag that did it.

This is just one scene in a movie where they all play strippers. How is that like To Wong Foo?

But Marilyn Monroe wore Carol Channing drag in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. This is getting confusing.
