Even in an interview, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill kind of have the buddy cop thing going for them, Yeah, part of it is the fact that they're wearing bike cop uniforms, but they've got a nice balance between them, and not the one you would expect. Hill is a lot more subdued than you might expect from the brash characters he's played onscreen, while Tatum is talkative and very much a gentlemen-- when he complimented me on the strength of my handshake before the interview began, it was quite a moment for me.

The vibe between Hill and Tatum is pretty much the best part of 21 Jump Street, and in the interview below they talk about how they balanced their roles as co-stars, Tatum volunteering to do every stunt while Hill sat back and watched, Hill bringing Tatum in as a star and producer, and Hill complimenting Tatum on his strongest scene of physical comedy, in which he's high on drugs and pretty much demolishes a band room. Check out our conversation below, and see all the madness for yourself in 21 Jump Street this weekend.
