Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill promote ’21 Jump Street’ in costume: funny or dumb?

Here’s the thing: I know that I’m not the target audience for 21 Jump Street. I wasn’t the target audience for the television show, and I’m not the target audience for this remake/film. My first reaction when I heard they were making the show into a movie was, “Ugh, how awful. Where’s the originality?” And then I saw the trailer. And now I really want to see it. So imagine my delight when I happened upon these photos. These are labeled, “from a press conference for ’21 Jump Street’ at the Crosby Hotel New York City.” THIS is how Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum decided to do their first press conference for the film. They decided to dress up like their bike cop characters and talk to the press. I know it’s dumb. But why can’t I stop laughing?

I think it’s because of Channing, honestly. Channing is working the hell out of his costume. Like, I would hit that. Hard. He looks sexy as hell, and he’s working that costume, AND his expression is hilarious. And just putting Channing together with Jonah… it’s working for me. Yes, I will see your movie, boys. And I will enjoy it.

Oh, and I don’t know where Ice Cube was, but this photo was included in the set. OMG. This movie is going to be AWESOME.

Here’s the red-band, NSFW trailer. I don’t even want to admit how many times I laughed.

    I really like Channing Tatum. Not just as a beefcake, either.

    Yeah, I’m a 33 year old female attorney. Not the target audience at all, but I’m seeing this opening weekend. And I fully expect to choke on my popcorn laughing.

    • hunter says:

      I’m a 35 y/o female in finance and I think we *might* be a big part of the target audience if we remember the original 21 Jump Street.

      I think it looks hilarious and Channing is totally working the outfit (hot!).

      He seems pretty cool actually.

  4. Aiobhan says:

    It is both funny and dumb. I will not be seeing this hot mess but hope it does well. I am waiting for Magic Mike. lol

    Edit: there is something hilarious about the career shift for Ice Cube and Ice T’s respective careers. Nothing funny to add but I like how both have matured into successful business men.

  5. Jade says:

    I used to think Channing was sexy during the early stages of his career (modeling, mountain dew, coach carter, she’s the man) but once he got together with his wife, his sexy died.

    • Maripily says:

      Jade, so his sexy died because now he’s off the market for you? Just kidding! lol I think he’s sooo hot, but yeah…it’s a bummer that he’s hitched. His wife is really beautiful, and they seem happily married.

  6. normades says:

    I love that Channing has popped the collar on his.

  7. LeManda says:

    Looks hilarious!

  8. gee says:

    I feel so much better knowing that I am not the only person who is going to love the hell out of this movie.

  9. carrie says:

    it will be without me

  10. NO SH¡T says:

    Channing is sexy as hell he can definitely get it!

  11. Talie says:

    Woah, Jonah is putting his weight back on.

    • cmc says:

      Yeah, I noticed that too :( I feel for him. I struggled a lot with my weight and went up/down for a few years…I’m at a healthy weight now but you better believe it takes a lot of practice to be able to lose the weight and maintain/overhaul your lifestyle vs. dieting yourself thin then going back to old habits. Hope he gets the hang of it.

      • laylajanelovesgossip says:

        Maybe he gained the weight on purpose. Possibly he has been pigeon-holed and couldn’t find work as the skinny guy. Sad, but I can totally see that happening:-(

      • Yes, I noticed it too. Maintaining a healthy weight is not simply about food but it’s a lifestyle change. He’ll have some fluctuations but I’m hoping he stays on the healthier side.

  12. Photo lab says:

    Channing Tatum really doesn’t do it for me. Not the face or the bod. Not saying he’s fug, just that he’s too beefcakey for my taste.

  13. The Original Mia says:

    I love Channing. Won’t be seeing this movie, thought, but I hope it does well for him.

  14. Nessa says:

    “I would not that. Hard.”


  15. Nessa says:

    Oops, I meant hit. Well, you know what I meant!

  16. Belle says:

    Okay, I LOVED Channing in Dear John… seriously loved him! Since then, he’s hit and miss for me (no pun intended). Some photos, I think he looks hot in, and others… well, not-so-hot. These goofy police ‘costume’ photos? Oh yes, definitely HOT!!! I get the feeling he might have worn a similar get-up back in his exotic dancing days, and looks like he’s getting ready to bump and grind a bit(;

  17. Abby says:

    I felt guilty that I really want to see this. Not the target audience but I love me some Channing tatum. I was expecting it to be dumb, but the trailers are so funny!

  18. seVen says:

    Oh Channing! My forever dong! Yes, hes delish

  19. the original bellaluna says:

    From what I’ve seen of this movie, they ruined a show I adored when it was on tv.

    When I’m a little more awake, I may give the trailer a try.

  20. Andria says:

    Loved 21 Jump Street (showing my age!) and I think the trailers for this movie are hysterical. Can’t wait for it to hit theaters. It won’t be Oscar materiel, but I’m pretty sure its going to have enough funny moments to be worth the price of a ticket. :)

  21. ShanKat says:

    Hey there, Channing Tatum’s microphone.

    He’s freaking delish. Hot and funny. Hell to the yeah.

    Jonah is putting the weight back on because there was SO much blowback from his radical weight loss. Which is…weird, but it makes sense, in a nonsensical showbiz way.

  22. Feebee says:

    Have never seen the show but loved the movie trailer. There’ll be enough laugh out loud moments and otherwise be so bad it’ll be fantastic!!!!

  23. original sandy says:

    i actually really like Jonah, he has grown on me, i loved his character in get him to the Greek/money ball, good luck to both of them, the trailer looks funny, ice cube also.
