He’s been busy plugging his new movie “22 Jump Street” as of late and Jonah Hill stopped by “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Thursday night (June 5) for a hilarious interview.

When asked about his costar Channing Tatum, the “Wolf of Wall Street” star shared, “We literally look and act like we’re from different planets! Like he's from planet hot, and I'm from planet Jew!"

Hill continued, "You just get lucky sometimes. You just go, oh wow, I really click with this person, or, there's something really weird and funny about how different we are."

"With [21 Jump Street], we were really self-aware about how stupid of an idea it was to turn an old TV show into a movie. So for this one [22 Jump Street], we were super aware to make fun of ourselves for making a sequel of a TV show that we turned into a movie."

Furthermore, Jonah added, "I figured out the perfect formula for filmmaking. Do you wanna know what it is? We do it with the Jump Street movies. These movies should be so bad that the fact that they're decent makes them look really good."
