Tag: Jonah Hill (1-10 of 30)

The setting was the star of Spike Jonze and Jonah Hill's Fashion Week play

The most impressive part of the one-act play Spike Jonze directed and co-wrote with Jonah Hill for Opening Ceremony’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection: the setting.

That’s not to knock the clothes, which were ostensibly the focal point of the piece—after all, the play was composed for Fashion Week. Nor is it to say that there weren’t good actors on stage. The cast consisted of stars like John Cameron Mitchell, Bobby Cannavale, Catherine Keener, Rashida Jones, and Elle Fanning.

But when the curtains opened to reveal that the audience was actually sitting in the back of the Metropolitan Opera House, looking out on its plush red seats and famous chandeliers, everything else became almost secondary. Seeing one of New York’s great institutions from such a rare perspective elevated the evening’s proceedings.


Spike Jonze, Jonah Hill to write one-act play for New York Fashion Week

What do you get when you combine the man behind a touching love story about a guy falling in love with his computer, the star of 22 Jump Street, and fashion? No seriously, someone tell us.

EW has confirmed that Spike Jonze and Jonah Hill have signed up to co-write a one-act play for Opening Ceremony in lieu of the designers’ traditional New York Fashion Week runway show. The details of the plot aren’t released, but Jonze also has plans to direct, while Hill will not appear in the show. Women‘s Wear Daily first reported the news.


'22 Jump Street': 10 pop-culture references you might have missed (and three you wish you had)

No doubt fans of 21 Jump Street recognized plenty of callbacks and self-deprecating cracks made by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in the über-meta sequel 22 Jump Street. From a running gag about how sequels are more expensive versions of the exact same thing (including undercover partners Schmidt and Jenko’s high-tech new HQ, which Jenko describes as cool “as a Cube of Ice”) to the line “F— you, doves!” (surely a throwback to the first installment’s fan-favorite line “F— you, science!”), the movie was chockablock with them.

That said, judging from some conspicuous moments of silence during gags at the screening I attended on Friday night, some of the deeper-cut references went over viewers’ heads. Hill is a real comedy geek and co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s The LEGO Movie was bursting at the seams with pop-culture riffs, so it’s only fair that more of their flourishes get full credit.

Below, we list a few of 22 Jump Street‘s loving homages to comedy greats, cameos, and gangsta rap. (SPOILERS!) READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon has one question for Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and Ice Cube: 'Sup'? -- VIDEO


22 Jump Street stars Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and Ice Cube surely had plenty to say about their new film when they stopped by The Tonight Show on Friday. But host Jimmy Fallon had just one question for the stars: “Sup?”

It’s a simple question that the pals made unnecessarily complicated, answering the greeting in the most ridiculous ways possible. Sup-sounding replies included: soap, lentil soup, sippy cup and… Patrick Duffy?

Tatum and Hill bro out in the new comedy, going undercover as college kids, so we get the joke. But the bit comes this-close to bringing on flashbacks of those “Wassup!” Budweiser commercials, a piece of nostalgia no one needed.

What Channing Tatum wishes he had never told a journalist -- LISTEN


Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are heading back to school (college this time) on Friday in 22 Jump Street. Our cover men took a break from the books (and partying) to chat with Entertainment Weekly editor Matt Bean for a Town Hall on EW Radio SiriusXM 105 that premieres Friday, at 7 p.m. ET.

During the chat, Bean asked Tatum about a supposed bet he and Hill made about how much 21 Jump Street would make opening weekend. “I should have never uttered this to a journalist as a joke,” Tatum said, kicking himself. “It caught fire like we actually made this real bet.” Hill predicted $30 million, Tatum predicted $35 million; the film made around $36 million. “If he ever pisses me off, I’m definitely collecting,” Tatum quipped.

The duo also discussed working with Ice Cube and performing (and evading) their own stunts, and played “Who Said It,” in which they listened to lines from each other’s movies and had to guess which movies the lines were from. Tatum beat Hill three to two-and-a-half. (Hill got half a point for knowing a director but not the film — curse you Side Effects!)

For a sneak peek of the Town Hall, check out the clips below, and find the whole show On Demand at SiriusXM.com immediately after it airs. Now, back to the books, boys. READ FULL STORY

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill reveal their first celebrity crushes (and their love of 'The Goonies') -- VIDEO


Sure, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill both star in the upcoming 22 Jump Street – but when we sat down with the actors for our latest cover shoot, EW discovered that they share more than just a movie screen. Not only do both actors love The Goonies equally — they also share a certain celebrity crush.

This week's cover: Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum get bromantic for '22 Jump Street'


Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are perfect for each other — anyone can see that. The stars of 22 Jump Street may be going back to school this Friday, but they have a kind of chemistry that can’t be taught. “If I wasn’t with my wife and Jonah had lady parts,” says Tatum, “I would probably ask him out.”

In this week’s Entertainment Weekly, Hill and Tatum discuss their new movie, a sequel so self-aware it’s practically sentient, and  trade jokes, compliments, and insults like one of those couples who finish each other’s sentences and french fries. “We are a quote-unquote odd couple,” says Hill. “That dynamic is true of our relationship on screen and off screen. We are incredibly different, we come from incredibly different worlds, and it is a yin and yang thing.” READ FULL STORY

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill made an X-rated '21 Jump Street' bet

If you ever gamble with Channing Tatum, you should know what he means by going “all in.”

Monday on Conan, the 22 Jump Street star revealed the terms of a bet he made with his co-star, Jonah Hill, back when 21 Jump Street was released. If a movie breaks $30 million in its first weekend, Tatum explained, then it’s done very well for itself. But when 21 Jump Street premiered, Tatum was feeling even more confident, telling Hill the film would do over $35 million. Hill said that if it did, he would kiss the tip of Tatum’s penis — “over the boxers,” he specified. “I’d say that’s a key piece of fabric for the story.”


Jonah Hill apologizes for gay slur again on 'Tonight'
