It’s difficult to define “chemistry” between two actors. We know it when we see it. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum had it in 21 Jump Street, and now it looks even stronger in the sequel. A new featurette has been released where the actors explain that they’re good together on-screen because they’re friends in real life, but I think that’s selling their acting a little short. There have been married couples who have co-starred in movies and failed at finding chemistry, so while an off-screen relationship may be good, you still have to perform when the cameras roll. As you can see from this featurette, Hill and Tatum have no problem performing (although improvising isn’t easy for Jenko).
Hit the jump to check out the new 22 Jump Street featurette. The film opens June 13th, and also stars Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, Amber Stevens, Peter Stormare, Rob Riggle, Dave Franco, Jillian Bell, and Craig Roberts.
