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].
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.
