Transcript for Jonah Hill to Channing Tatum: 'Steal Some Seats'
Since setting screens ablaze in "Magic Mike," Channing Tatum's career has shifted into warp speed. He's now rejoined forces with Jonah hill in the follow-up to their smash buddy cap comedy "21 jump street." The duo tries to pass themselves off as college students to bust a drug ring in '22 jump street." We're Normal college age. If you're older, that's cool. Girls here love older dudes. Just want something that's a little deeper. Yeah. Deeper. Jinx, buy me a coke. Snap, man, we're still saying the same thing. This is amazing. Carrots. Pumper nickel, glow sticks, twins. That's amazing. We have that brother connection, too. You ready? Boom. Welcome Channing, everybody. Back to "Good morning America." Oh, my goodness. You know, what more can you say? What's so ironic is that clip, you don't have chemistry. But you and Jonah have such chemistry in that buddy movie. We pretty much go and make fun of each other all day. I did four movies last year. And like back-to-back-to-back. And this was at the end. It was a very welcome sight to see your buddy at the end of a long road. And we got to have fun. Part of that makes it work. We can tell that you all hang out. You all are really friends. Truly. And a lot of stuff comes -- first movie, just me trying to figure out how to do camomedy. This one, I got to try your own stuff. 98% of the stuff you do in comedy, dies on the cutting room floor. Or dies in the room or whatever. And you have to trust Chris and Phil. We have two amazing directors. You do. It comes through. Jonah was here yesterday. And he left you a little message. Thanks. Go on. Hi, CHAN. I love you. Have fun at "Good morning America." Steal some seats. Steal some seats? Steal some seats. Should we bolt down the chairs or something? I might have stolen a chair or two from some places. There's a story there that you're not giving up. Not going to give it up, either. I'm not going to hear the end of it. I've been known to caper some seats. You have a full life. Let's put it that way. I don't have very many seats in my house. I have to get them where I can get them. You are getting some rave reviews. "Fox catcher." Some are saying it's the best reviews you've gotten in your career. And I was Reading where your acting coach said it was going to take you ten years to be a good actor. And it's ten years later. And this is throwback Thursday. We're going to show the first time that we saw you. It was "Csi: Miami." Here you go. Why are you coming at me all hard for, man? Like I'm a criminal or something, dog. Aside from the fact you have no registration for the boat that was involved in a shooting by star island. I didn't blast nobody. It was sitting there running. I took it for a ride. Wow. Ten years later. Ten years later. All right. I basically act the same. It's the same. It's my -- Nancy, my acting coach is still my acting coach. The first time I sat down with her, she said, look, it's going to take ten years to be a good actor. Unless you're ready to do the work, we shouldn't go forward. All right. Let's get started. My friend, you have done the work. You really have. And it shows. That's what comes through on the screen in any kind of role you're playing. Thanks a lot. For Lara Spencer, "Magic Mike." Number two coming up? We're working on it. We're writing right now. It's one of those things, doing a sequel, it's hard. It's hard to do a sequel because you don't want to do a sequel just for the sake of doing one. And we did leave a lot on the creative table. There's a crazy thing called a stripper convention I went to. Oh, wow. It's a real thing. And I couldn't fit it in the first movie. We tried to figure out if it had enough creative juice to get it through. Get that into another movie. And have these guys have growth and learn something. Good tease there. As we go away. A fun-fetti cake is all the rage. And we're going to bring one in for you. Nice. 22. Are we actually going to eat this? You get to eat your fun-fetti. We know how much you love it so much. And "22 jump street." Please, please. There's nothing to eat it with, unless we're going to start having a little fun here.
