Channing Tatum Brags About His Diaper Changing Skills


Channing Tatum Jonah Hill

Channing Tatum has made a pretty bold claim when it comes to his parenting skills. “I’m solid at diaper changing!” the Magic Mike actor revealed in an interview. He added: “If a guy isn’t good at changing a diaper I don’t know what he’s there for really, because for the first seven months or so, the mom is the end-all, be-all of everything.”

Channing and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum met on set of their 2006 movie Step Up and began dating soon after. They married in 2009 and on May 31 2013 their daughter Everly was born in London. “[Everly] does not like sitting still but I can [change the diaper] even when she’s crawling, standing up, doing the whole thing.”

The Good News? '22 Jump Street' Is Very, Very Good


Jonah Hill Channing Tatum

'21 Jump Street' was an unexpected delighted in 2012 for olumbia with the seemingly mismatched team of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill proving they had the comedy clout to not only pull off the movie adaptation of the teen series - but make it good. In the sequel - 22 Jump Street - the pair make the case for being considered one of the best new comedy duos around.

'22 Jump Street': How Hollywood Sequels Can Learn From James Bond


Channing Tatum Jonah Hill

The central joke of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum's follow-up 22 Jump Street is that sequels are by definition bigger and more complicated, but never quite as good as the original. Indeed, at every point the filmmakers one-up 2012's 21 Jump Street, from the fact that every crashed car explodes into a ball of flame to the new glass-and-steel headquarters for the undercover squad, just across the street from the old one.

22 Jump StreetJonah Hill [L] and Channing Tatum [R] in '22 Jump Street'

Clearly this is a theory that's been adopted by Marvel for their Avengers family of movies, as the stakes keep getting higher and higher. But once you've saved Los Angeles, New York, London and the entire planet, where do you go? So now we have Thor's inter-realm shenanigans. And they're pushing it into a new level with this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy.

22 Jump Street Review


Very Good

A consistently hilarious stream of in-jokes keeps the audience in fits of laughter even if there's virtually no plot to this follow-up to the 2012 hit 21 Jump Street. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum revive their amusing double-act to poke fun at sequels and franchises amid silly set-pieces and starry cameos. And it gives filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller their second terrific comedy of the year, after The Lego Movie.

Following their successful bust of a high school drug ring, undercover officers Schmidt and Jenko (Hill and Tatum) are assigned by their grumpy captain (Ice Cube) to infiltrate a university and track down who's dealing the new drug whyphy. But both get distracted by life on campus: Schmidt begins a romance with Maya (Amber Stevens), while Jenko finds his meathead soul-mate in football teammate Zook (Wyatt Russell). With their partnership in jeopardy, Schmidt and Jenko must refocus on a spring break trip to Mexico, where they discover an old nemesis (Peter Stormare) on the loose.

Using a non-stop series of gags about how follow-up movies are more expensive and less original, the filmmakers go about proving this hypothesis with amusingly overwrought sets and a chaotic, derivative narrative that has very little momentum. Meanwhile, they pack every moment of the film with witty humour that's played expertly by Hill and Tatum, who rekindle their chemistry with a steady barrage of gay double entendre that reveals the movie's true nature as a brom-com. On the other hand, neither the actors nor the filmmakers are willing to push things too far, so they settle for silly vulgarity instead of any black comedy or edgy humour.

Jonah Hill Delivers Emotional Apology For Anti-Gay Slur On 'Tonight Show'


Jonah Hill

Jonah Hill is very sorry for the remarks he made this past weekend to a photographer.

The 30 year-old actor caused controversy when he was caught on camera delivering a homophobic slur to a member of the paparazzi, who was disrupting his day.

In a 40-second clip released by TMZ, Hill told this certain individual, "Suck my d***, you f*****!"

Jonah Hill Offers Up Numerous Apologies For Homophobic Slur


Jonah Hill Channing Tatum

Jonah Hill landed himself in a bit of trouble recently when he told a paparazzi to “suck his d*ck” and called him a “f**ggot”. Having been a staunch supporter of LGBT rights for his whole life, the scandal did seem like a surprise, and Hill has offered up numerous heartfelt apologies on both The Howard Stern Show and The Tonight Show. 

22 Jump StreetJonah Hill and Channing Tatum in '22 Jump Street'

“This person had been following me around all day, had been saying hurtful things about my family, really hurtful things about me personally,” Hill explained. “And I played into exactly what he wanted and lost my cool. And in that moment, I said a disgusting word that does not at all reflect how I feel about any group of people… I’m not at all defending my choice of words, but I’m happy to be the poster boy for thinking about what you say and how those words — even if you don’t intend them — and how they’re rooted in hate and that’s bullshit and I shouldn’t have said that.”

Jonah Hill And The Art Of Apologizing Like An Alright Human Being


Jonah Hill Howard Stern

Well, at least Jonah Hill knows how to apologize like a grownup. The 22 Jump Street star had a run-in with a pap over the weekend and he lashed out, yelling at the man: “"Suck my d***, you f*****!”

Jonah Hill
It looks like Hill is aware of why and how his words were hurtful and inappropriate.

It wasn’t his highest point, to be sure, especially considering that Hill is an outspoken LGBT+ supporter and has worked with the Human Rights Campaign to spread awareness before. To his credit, however, when Hill went on Howard Stern yesterday, there were no excuses or non-apologies of the “I’m sorry you were offended” variety. Despite Stern giving him the opportunity to deny it, saying that he couldn’t really hear what the actor was saying, Hill faced his gaffe head on. His exact words (via TMZ) were: “What I said in that moment was disgusting ... I shouldn't have said that.”

Jonah Hill Explains Strange Bet With Channing Tatum And Losing Second Oscar Nod


Jonah Hill

The focus of Jonah Hill's recent interview on 'The Howard Stern Show' has been his apology for using an anti-gay slur towards a photographer.

But the rest of the 30 year-old's discussion with Stern is definitely worth a listen, he talks about losing an Oscar to Jared Leto and Channing Tatum's private parts.

Before long, the controversial radio DJ began talking about a bet Hill made with Tatum regarding how well '21 Jump Street' (2012) would do on opening weekend.

Will Jonah Hill's Homophobic Slur Damage His Pristine Reputation?


Jonah Hill Howard Stern

Uh oh, Jonah Hill’s really put his foot in it. Lately he’s been riding high off his superb performance in The Wolf of Wall Street and is widely considered to be an “all round nice guy.” This perception of him is even parodied in the film This is the End, in which the actors all play exaggerated versions of themselves.

The buddy cop movie is back, and officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) have to go back to college as undercover agents trying to get to the root of a drug doing the rounds on campus in '22 Jump Street'. Of course, the mission doesn’t go exactly to plan via a concoction of college memories and nasty gangsters.

Jonah Hill's Gay Slur Comes At Wrong Time For Sony


Jonah Hill Channing Tatum

Just as Sony was stepping up its promotion for 22 Jump Street - one of its big hitters for this summer - Jonah Hill has dropped a homophobic sized bombshell on proceedings. The 30-year-old has a pretty clean reputation in Hollywood and is generally considered one of the nice guys of comedy, though, under pressure from a persistent paparazzo, the actor used a homophobic slur in a video obtained by TMZ.com.

22 Jump Street - International Trailer


Schmidt and Jenko are two young cops who thought they'd seen the last of student culture after successfully arresting the supplier behind a high school narcotic in special division 21 Jump Street. However, given that they did such a good job at acting ten years younger, they've been enlisted to return to college to get to the bottom of a new drug that is going around high school graduates called Whyphy. This time they've been moved to 22 Jump Street, and the kids they have to deal with are much smarter - and way more dangerous. When Spring Break comes around, it feels like a perfect opportunity to nab the new suppliers but in order to do so, they need a little help. After visiting an old perp in jail, they begin to weave their way through the social circles of college - but that's easier said than done when their own relationship is struggling.

Just days after Lindsay Lohan allegedly released a list of her famous bedroom partners, Seth Rogen has revealed all the Hollywood stars that have joined him for a premium pot-smoking session. Rogen - the star of Knocked Up, Pineapple Express and Neighbors - has made no secret of his penchant for a smoke, and now we know who he's lighting up with.

Seth RogenSeth Rogen Smokes Weed, A Lot

During an interview with Watch What Happens Live, Rogen said: "This is really depressing for me to say ... I've never smoked weed with James Franco because he doesn't smoke weed. That's why he's such a good actor! It's really sad, actually." The friends starred together in the stoner comedy Pineapple Express.

New "22 Jump Street Trailer" Is Familiar, But Still Funny


Channing Tatum Jonah Hill

There’s a new trailer out for the upcoming Channing Tatum starrer 22 Jump Street. There were previously two trailers – the red band and the green band. This one is the green band trailer, except it has a new scene attached to the end. It’s pretty funny, if ever so slightly… well, you’ll see.

Check out the trailer below, courtesy of Sony.

22 Jump Street is the sequel to the 2012 hit 21 Jump Street (Sony didn’t get too creative with the titles) in which two deadbeat cops get sent to a high school to go undercover and bust a synthetic drug ring. In the new one, it looks like Jenko (Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill) are up to their old tricks. Only they’ve now graduated from high school (in more ways than one) and are investigating a new case at a local college. Like 21, the sequel is directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from a story by Michael Bacall.

Lawyer Suing Over 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' "Rugrat" Character Likeness


Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese P.J. Byrne Jonah Hill

A lawyer has launched a lawsuit against Martin Scorsese's movie The Wolf of Wall Street, alleging that he has been defamed by the character Nicky "Rugrat" Roskoff. Andrew Greene's suit that it was "readily apparent" the character, known in the movie as "Rugrat," was based on him.

Actor P.J. Byrne Plays Nicky Roskoff, The Character Who Greene Alleges Is Based On Him.

Actor P.J. Byrne plays the character in the Oscar-nominated stockbroker drama who earns his nickname because of his toupee and willingness to launder money. Greene alleges that the movie has "permanently damaged" his professional and personal reputation by portraying him as "a criminal and drug user with misogynistic tendencies," according to CNN.

The Lego Movie Review


Excellent

Inventive visuals and a seriously deranged script make this animated adventure far more enjoyable than we expect, especially as it brings out the childish creativity in everyone watching. Filmmakers Lord and Miller are experts at finding offbeat comedy in the most surprising places (see Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs or 21 Jump Street). And this movie is often jaw-droppingly entertaining.

It's set in a Lego city where construction worker Emmet (voiced by Pratt) follows instructions to the letter. Like everyone else, he has been lulled into complacency by President Business (Ferrell), whose inanely catchy pop songs (the insanely hummable Everything Is Awesome!) and mindless TV shows (Where Are My Pants?) keep people from thinking creatively. He's also concocting an insidious plan involving a secret weapon called the Kragle. Then Emmet inadvertently discovers the Piece of Resistance and is declared "The Special" by the underground rebel alliance led by Wyldstyle (Banks) and Vitruvius (Freeman). With help from Batman (Arnett), a patched-up pirate (Offerman) and a groovy kitty (Brie), they go off-grid to save their civilisation, pursued by the president's vicious enforcer (Neeson).

As the story spirals from the city to the Wild West and Cloud Cuckoo Land, it develops an insane, free-wheeling tone that can't help but spark our imaginations. And the sassy 3D animation adds to this by evoking surreal stop-motion classics like Gumby or The Magic Roundabout while referencing other movies and playing merrily with iconic characters. Hill, Smulders and Tatum turn up as a trio of frustrated superheroes, while Daniels and Williams offer a bit of Star Wars silliness. All of the vocal cast members dive into their characters with energy, bringing out the warped humour and pulling us into the action and even some emotional moments.

The Grammy Awards may have dominated the entertainment news from the weekend but one story is refusing to die down.

"Honestly, my whole life feels like a dream come true right now," Hill said in his opening monologue.

Jonah Hill's Tiny 'Wolf Of Wall Street' Pay Packet & The Other Stars Who've Taken A Pay-Cut For Success


Jonah Hill Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese Harry Shearer The Simpsons Keanu Reeves

Jonah Hill has made headlines recently after it was revealed he was paid just $60,000 for his Oscar-nominated role in The Wolf of Wall Street. Now, $60,000 is a lot of money to a lot of people, but in the world of Hollywood actors and their big pay cheques, Hill was paid pitance for his work. Still, he is not the only one to take a pay cut for the sake of the project paying them.

Jonah Hill
Jonah Hill is apparently nothing like his character in Donnie Azoff

Hill decided to take a pay cut, from the usual 6-7 figure digit he tends to receive, because he was so determined to get the part of Donnie Azoff so he could work with the director of the project, Martin Scorsese. By putting his dreams first and his bank account last, Hill has received his second Oscar nomination to date and has been roundly praised by critics for his role. What's more , Hill isn't alone in taking one for the team and opting out of a big pay cheque for the sake of the project he's appearing in.

Ironically, in film about greed, money and living to the excess, Jonah Hill was paid relatively little for his role.

The 30 year-old portrays stock broker Donnie Azoff in Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf Of Wall Street', and has earned an Oscar-nomination for his work.

But the quality of Hill's services came at a surprisingly cheap price, he revealed his pay check was only $60,000.

Jonah Hill Martin Scorsese

Jonah Hill may play one of the characters motivated by money in Martin Scorsese's new comedy, The Wolf of Wall Street, but the actor is real-life is apparently far less avaricious. The film star has revealed that he wanted the part of Donnie Azoff in the movie so much that he hounded co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, threatened to commit murder if anyone else got the part and accepted a pretty paltry (well, in Hollywood terms) salary of $60,000 (£36,000).

Jonah Hill
Jonah Hill Accepted A Smaller Salary For His Dream Role In 'The Wolf Of Wall Street.'

For an A-list actor who could probably comfortably demand millions for a lead role in such a prominent film, 60K is a notably low sum - minimum wage if you're a Hollywood hot-shot. The 22 Jump Street star just wanted to show Scorsese and the makers of The Wolf of Wall Street that he so badly wanted the role, he'd accept a lower-than-usual sum for a performance for which he has now been nominated for an Oscar.

Unlike Donnie Azoff, Jonah Hill Earned 'Minimum Wage' For 'Wolf Of Wall Street'


Jonah Hill Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

Jonah Hill’s character in The Wolf of Wall Street – the ridiculous Donnie Azoff – is a man whose bad taste never outguns his monumental salary. Drugs, alcohol, £3,000 Armani suits and fast cars don’t dent the hefty bank balance he accumulated via stock market manipulation and the penny stock boiler room that was Stratton Oakmont.

But Hill’s real-life paystub paled in insignificance to Azoff’s in Scorsese’s controversial black comedy. The star was so enthusiastic to work with the legendary director, he took a huge pay cut to get the role. And when we say minimum wage, we’re talking about an actor’s minimum wage…

The Wolf Of Wall Street Review


Extraordinary

At age 71, Martin Scorsese proves with this riotous romp that he's one of the most energetic, audacious filmmakers working in America at the moment. And with his long-time 74-year-old editor Thelma Schoonmaker, he has created one of the most entertaining cautionary tales in recent memory. Not only does it highlight an unruly period in banking history, but it has a lot to say about where we are now.

This is the true story of Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio), who was 21 when he got his first job on Wall Street in the rough-and-tumble 1980s. Thanks to his illicit deals, he was a multi-millionaire within five years, tutored by a jaded veteran (McConaughey) and assisted by an enthusiastic novice (Hill). Along the way, he also swaps for a much more glamorous wife (Robbie), whose British aunt (Lumley) becomes part of his scam to stash his cash with a shady Swiss banker (Dujardin). But with an FBI agent (Chandler) on his trail, Jordan suspects that the high life can't go on forever.

At just under three hours long, the film sometimes feels like it is wallowing in the excessive sex and drugs along with these Wall Street criminals. But there's a jagged undercurrent to everything: all of this hedonism may look like fun, but someone is paying the price. The film is an often thrilling series of set-pieces that roll out in waves of comedy, tragedy and farce as these people play on the edge of an abyss. And it's great to see scenes play out in real time, with deep conversations, riotous comedy riffs and characters who are full of conflicting layers.
