In 2012, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill teamed up to reboot the classic TV cop drama 21 Jump Street, and the chemistry between the two actors was an instant hit with fans. Now, they're back for 22 Jump Street, and have graduated from going undercover in high school to going undercover in college.
The comedy magic found in the perfect potion of combining Hill's over-the-top physicality with Tatum's subtle strangeness and timing led to 21 Jump Street earning over $200 million at the box office. ET had to find out what made Hill and Tatum the perfect buddy-cop duo.
"[Hill] is just one of these guys that I grew up with almost," Tatum told ET at the film's New York City premiere on Wednesday night. "We got along really easy and fast… as soon as we got on set it was just two guys sort of making fun of things, and each other, and that's really it."
If 22 Jump Street is a smash hit, will Hill, 31, and Tatum, 34, going undercover again? If so, where? Jump Street star Ice Cube had some suggestions on a possible sequel. "We're thinking about preschool maybe. Maybe nursing school. Veterinarian school. You never know."
