Channing Tatum says he was a huge fan of the original "21 Jump Street" show and that the movie "isn't a complete departure" from it.
The 31-year-old actor stars in the new film adaptation alongside Jonah Hill. "21 Jump Street" is based on a 1980s cop series starring Johnny Depp and hit theaters on Friday, March 16. Tatum was about seven years old when the original series premiered in 1987. It ended its run in 1991.
Jonah Hill marked his second time as host of "Saturday Night Live" on March 10 and got a little help from a guest to kick off his opening monologue.
Hill spoofed the fact that he was a recent Oscar nominee and was shown in a clip speaking down to members of the cast. Tom Hanks, a two-time Academy Award-winner, popped up on stage and teased Hill with his own Oscar.
Jonah Hill is set to host the March 10 episode of NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and revealed his plans for the episode, which will be his second time hosting the comedy sketch show.
"You just try not to fall on your face," Jonah told Access Hollywood. "I think I did pretty well the first time, but now it's [the] sophomore slump. [I've] got to get over the sophomore slump."
Jonah Hill has reportedly moved on from his break-up with longtime girlfriend Jordan Klein.
The 27-year-old "Moneyball" and "Super Bad" star is dating Dustin Hoffman's daughter Ali, according to the New York Post. Ali, born Alexandra, is 24. The newspaper quotes an unnamed source who claims that the two were friends growing up and that Hill is friends with her brother Jake.
Hoffman reportedly discovered Jonah while he was in high school and Hill got his first acting break in 2004 with "I Heart Huckabees" starring Hoffman.
Jonah Hill is another celebrity who is not pleased with the popularity of the Kardashians and said he finds the success of their shows "disgusting."
"I have friends who work in TV and the Kardashians get higher ratings than their TV shows," Hill told The Huffington Post in an interview posted on December 13. "Shows that people actually work hard on -- writing and creating and trying to tell stories. The fact that the Kardashians could be more popular than a show like 'Mad Men' is disgusting."
Jonah Hill has worked opposite some of the funniest people in Hollywood, but after filming "The Sitter," it appears that the actor has a soft spot for working with kids.
"Max [Records] and Kevin [Hernandez] and Landry [Bender] were awesome, they were so cool and fun to work with," Hill said of his young co-stars, in an interview provided by Twentieth Century Fox Films. "I like improvising a lot and kids are very unexpected in their choices and their comments, so David [Gordon Green] just kind of let them run loose and I would just kind of have to react. It adds a whole 'nother level of spontaneity because their brains are so ADD and crazy that they just go to really strange and cool places. It's really fun to act with them."
