Coach Carter, 15 years later: that the cast is up to now

Happy birthday, Channing Tatum!

OK, so it’s not really the superstar’s birthday (it would be April 26 and the big 4-0 is shooting!), But on January 14 marks the official debut in the acting of Tatum, who made his first appearance on the big screen in 2005 by Coach Carter.

The inspiring and true story starred Samuel L. Jackson as new coach of his old high school basketball team, with superstar playing Ken Carter, the real-life figure who made headlines in 1999 when he suspended some of his team’s biggest stars because of their poor academic performance .

With Jackson as a draw, the sports film, which was co-written by One Tree Hill Creator Mark Schwahn, went on to become a box office hit, making its debut at no. 1 and making nearly $ 80 million. Oh, and we already said that it introduced the audience to Channing Tatum, as well as being the film debut of Ashanti?

Just before the big 15th anniversary, Coach Carter finally made its debut on Netflix, with the new audience having discovered the drama of pleasant basketball.

What have Oilers players done since they stopped shooting circles, doing push-ups and committing suicide?
