Jonah Hill might want to work on his betting skills because he doesn't appear to understand the mechanics of it. The '22 Jump Street' star hit 'Conan' last night, alongside the other half of the burgeoning franchise's all-star comedic duo, Channing Tatum, to share some very weird (and very x-rated) tidbits about a bet the pair made quite awhile ago.
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, 'Doctor Strange' and 'Ant-Man' get directors, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' continues its marketing surge, and Channing Tatum promises big things with 'Gambit.'
Jonah Hill (‘Evan Almighty’) and Channing Tatum (‘G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra’) are back as Schmidt and Jenko in the sequel to '21 Jump Street,' titled '22 Jump Street.' Is '22 Jump Street' as funny as the first movie? As a service to you – yes, you – we answer every question that you could possibly have about '22 Jump Street.'
We've been talking about Channing Tatum starring as Gambit, the popular X-Men character, for years and years now. Tatum even auditioned for the part in 'X-Men: The Last Stand' before the character was eventually cut from the film. But, after all that talk, it's finally confirmed: Channing Tatum will star as Gambit in an upcoming 'X-Men' spinoff movie.
Gambit has been a fan favorite 'X-Men' character ever since his first full appearance in "Uncanny X-Men #266" back in 1990. You would think that would lead to fast track to the big screen, but Gambit's road to cinematic stardom has been shaky at best. The character made a brief appearance in the horrible 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' (played by Taylor Kitsch), but has since not been re-introduced to movie audiences. That could all change as Channing Tatum admits he's met with the 'X-Men' producers about the part.
After getting the delightful news that 'Magic Mike 2,' starring, co-written and co-produced by Channing Tatum, will be titled 'Magic Mike XXL,' Tatum lovers everywhere will no doubt release a collective sigh to hear that the film is coming sooner than we think! Warner Bros. dated 'Magic Mike 2' for release in 2015, and what's even better, Tatum says that nearly the entire cast is expected to return.
Guillermo may be Jimmy Kimmel's "security guard" and "driver" and "friend," but he also has some big dreams, like usurping the late-night throne from his own boss and host of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.' If that involves stealing his jokes, so be it. If that means just taking over the late-night show's air time, fine. If he needs to text high-profile guests to get them on the show, consider it done.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller may have passed up on 'Ghostbusters 3,' but that's completely fine with us if they keep making movies that look as funny as '22 Jump Street'. Today, the final red-band trailer has arrived and, in the rare case of the comedy sequel, it looks just as funny as the first.
