Jonah Hill talks 22 Jump Street

21 Jump Street should have been horrible. Another unnecessary big screen adaptation of an old TV show that everyone had pretty much forgotten about, it was initially met with a chorus of groans. And then people saw it.

Against all odds, it was a rousing success, largely because tongues were kept firmly in cheeks, with the script constantly ridiculing the very idea of the film. So with 22 Jump Street, the ridiculousness of making a sequel to an adaptation of a TV show is very much front and centre throughout.

We had a very quick sit down with Jonah Hill to discuss the meta nature of the film, his thoughts on sequels in general and whether he's auditoning for Magic Mike 2.

22 Jump Street hits cinemas on Friday
