Donald Sutherland on younger co-star Channing Tatum in The Eagle

One day, we were sitting around the Coliseum set. I noticed that he (Channing Tatum) had headphones on. I thought, ‘Oh he’s listening to some on-the-edge band I’ve never heard of.’ But I asked him, and – turns out it was a book he was listening to. He downloaded books on Ancient Rome, philosophy, politics … the dedication that this young actor has is a wonder.
