Pitt and Hill appear on the cover of a August 2011 issue of New York magazine. Pitt talks about why he became obsessed with the story and working with Hill.
Jonah’s a revelation in this thing – he’s a study in reserve. I think the most interesting work that’s been going on in the last couple of years is what the comedy guys have been doing. Guys like Jonah and Russell Brand and [Seth] Rogen and a few others … they picked up on an irreverence that started with Adam Sandler and continued with Will Ferrell, but they’ve been grounding it in a kind of pathos and humanity. I find it really strong work.
Seacrest interviews Hill during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his weight loss.
I take it very seriously, I didn’t treat it like a diet. I really wanted to change the way I was living. I’m shooting a movie with Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn out in Atalanta, and everyone is really healthy on the set. We are joking about how much people would expect us to be crazy together, but all we do is talk about (healthy) shakes!

I am so humbled, appreciative and in shock about this incredible honor.
Seacrest interviews Hill during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and about his role in the film 21 Jump Street’ Sequel.
Yeah I wrote that with my buddy Mike Bacall and I produced it with Channing. I mean I was the originator of the project. It was a TV show obviously and then they asked if I wanted to adapt it into a film and I was the one who was originally was adapting it into a film. It took me five years from where I started writing to when it came out. Exactly. So that’s why I was so excited that people dig it, you know? Cause it’s like, I never know if it was ever going to actually be a movie, let alone come out and have people really like it.
Elle Magazine interviews Hill about an interview where he was quoted telling a rude reporter “Being in a funny movie doesn’t make me have to answer dumb questions.”
I read that interview and was mortified. Not to make an excuse, but I had been going through some stuff that was hard on me. And I would say that the gentleman who did the interview was not a nice person. But I acted like not a nice person in return.
Hill is nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 86th Academy Awards for portraying Donnie Azoff in The Wolf of Wall Street.
I am in complete and total shock. I honestly was not expecting this, on a level you can’t even imagine. Again, I’m clearly in shock. I didn’t have a plan for celebrating today because I truly did not expect any of this!

Tatum and Hill guest on Conan to promote 22 Jump Street. They also talk about Tatum’s incessant physical bullying of Hill and their strange bet involving the movie’s opening sales figures and kissing a private body part. Tatum:
All right, in a movie opening weekend, if your movie breaks $30 million, you had a very, very good weekend. Jonah thought that it would just break 30. I thought it was going to break 35. He said if it breaks 35, I will kiss the tip of your [beep].
