Terrence "YAHOO!" Howard and Channing Tatum are shooting Fighting this week in New York City, along with the incomparable Luis Guzman, who seems like kind of a dick in the above clip from the set of WaitingHe also gives us the straight dope about sex. Creepy. 

Tatum stars as Sean Arthur, a young man who scrapes up a living hustling counterfeit merchandise in NYC. With family tragedy in his past and his father keeping him at a distance, this outsider has little to motivate him. A chance encounter with veteran street-fighting coach Harvey Boarden (Howard) leads to a whole new career for Sean.  

Eh, at least Tim Dick Allen's not in it. Guzman will play a fight promoter, and America-born Vietnamese ass kicker Cung Le will also appear, as "Sean's fearsome Korean foe in the ring."  Which makes me wonder, why not just re-write the character as Vietnamese?  Are Koreans inherently more villainous?

UPDATE: Apparently, the Luis Guzman video is a fake. Meh. So are Alyssa Milano's tits, I still wanna squeeze 'em.
