Tatum: 'Come back and act, LaBeouf'

Channing Tatum has issued a plea to Shia LaBeouf to return to the big screen.

The 22 Jump Street star, who appeared with the Transformers actor on A Guide To Recognising Your Saints in 2006, admitted they have yet to reunite since that film.

"I've never seen him since then. The kid's an incredible actor," he told US GQ, adding: "I just wish that he would just act. Just act, man!"

Channing revealed how the pair acted like "hoodlums" on a drunken night out in New York as they tried to bond.

"We were drinking. And I think our initial thing was 'Alright, let's go out and try and get in a fight!' This was just young dumb idiot actors thinking that that's going to bond us. Because we'll shed blood together," he recalled.

The 34-year-old continued: "I definitely kicked in a window that night. We were just running and being hoodlums and throwing trash bags down streets and just being stupid. We were trying to be like 80s hoodlums. And I think as we were running I kicked this thing, not thinking it would ever shatter. And everything just went raining down.

"I think Shia even punched a cop car - we weren't even sure if the cop was in the car, he punched the window of a cop car. It was pandemonium. It was just one of those nights that the volume just keeps getting turned up, turned up. And we all split up. We all just ran in opposite directions."

Channing added: "In hindsight it's the funniest thing in the world - just typical actors trying too hard. It's only fun because we didn't get caught... that I can have perspective on it now and know it was stupid. I don't think we were thinking."
