Channing Tatum, the 32-year old actor with many shirtless film roles under his belt, has been named People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2012.

Tatum is certainly a good candidate for the title. The former model/exotic dancer has shown us his moves in "Step Up" and "Step Up 2: The Streets"; he's shown us his soft side in films like "Dear John" and "The Vow"; and finally, he showed us just about everything else in "Magic Mike."

Let's sneak a peek at 2012's "Sexiest Man Alive." Check out the photos below.
