Jonah Hill: Channing Tatum is ‘From Planet Hot and I’m From Planet Jew’ (VIDEO)
In a raw moment late last week on the talk show Late Night with Seth Meyers, Jewish actor Jonah Hill commented on his great chemistry with his 22 Jump Street costar Channing Tatum, despite the two coming from such different backgrounds.
“We literally look and act like we’re from different planets,” Hill said on Thursday. “He’s from Planet Hot, and I’m from Planet Jew.”
Hill also revealed that before working with Tatum on 2012’s 21 Jump Street, the pair had never met.
“You just get lucky sometimes,” he said of his co-star. “You just go, oh wow, I really click with this person, or, there’s something really weird and funny about how different we are.”
Hill then told Meyers that following the success of 21 Jump Street, he has figured out “the perfect formula for filmmaking.”
“We do it with the Jump Street movies. These movies should be so bad, that the fact that they’re decent makes them look really good,” he said. “They should be the worst movies ever made.”
22 Jump Street opens in theaters Friday, June 15.
