21 Jump Street actors Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum have revealed to The Score Card Review how they developed a very strong bond during the making of the movie. Jonah admitted that you have to care about your co star in a buddy movie, while Channing praised Jonah for being so caring.
Hill explained, "Movies like this live or die on whether you believe these two people care about one another. All of the great cop movies feel like the partners want the best for the other one. Our friendship in the film is really tested and put back together. I think that exists because we get along really well in real life, and we're good actors. I like to let it speak for itself."
Tatum then added, "I really respect Jonah. You have to respect somebody you really get along with. He's one of the most creative people, and one of the smartest, that I've ever been around. He just cares.”
He continued, "There are a lot of people who are driven, and only worry about success. That's not Jonah. He is successful because he cares. He cares about what he's doing and the people around him. He's one of the coolest people I've ever met."
21 Jump Street is out now in both the US and the UK.
