Even in the undeniably stilted setup of an on-camera interview, Rob Riggle seems like a guy you could easily know, like the friendly jock from high school who somehow wound up with a movie career, but can't believe it either. I could have walked into the room and said "Dude, you're in a movie with Channing Tatum!" and he would have gone, "I know, crazy, right??" Of course, I didn't do that, and of course, Rob Riggle has worked with virtually everyone you can imagine popping up in most of the best comedy of the last decade, from Arrested Development and The Daily Show to The Hangover and Step Brothers.

This weekend he's once again part of a killer comedy ensemble in 21 Jump Street, playing the high school teacher and coach Mr. Walters, who winds up with Jonah Hill's undercover cop character on his track team and gets further enmeshed in the movie's silly adventures. He also shares an unforgettable scene with Hill and Channing Tatum when the two undercover cops are forced to take drugs at school. I talked to Riggle about the comedy that makes him laugh, how his own high school experience compares to what we see in the movie, and what the ability to improv adds to a movie like this. Check out the interview below, and see 21 Jump Street in theaters this weekend.
