Jonah Hill Talks the Fate of 'Allen Gregory,' '21 Jump Street' & Co-Hosting 'Live! With Kelly'

Jonah HillFrom Oscar buzzy sports drama 'Moneyball' with Brad Pitt, to his turn re-imagining an '80s classic with the big screen '21 Jump Street,' to his Fox animated series 'Allen Gregory' and a stint co-hosting 'Live! with Kelly' next week, it's safe to say that Jonah Hill is having an awesomely schizophrenic moment in his career.

I caught up with the actor/writer/producer/funnyman to find out about the fate of 'Allen Gregory' (season finale airs Sun., Dec. 4, 8:30PM ET on Fox), his absurdly inappropriate animated series that finds him voicing a precocious seven-year-old who sips fine wine and lusts after his geriatric school principal. The show's gotten mixed reviews and has done little in terms of ratings for its first batch of episodes -- and, as expected, it was nowhere on the midseason schedule Fox just unveiled -- but that's fine by Hill.

"I just think everything on TV is so boring that our show ... [laughs] look, our show is not exactly killing it in the ratings," Hill laughed. "We're not a show that's gonna win a bunch of Emmys or get 20 million viewers a week. But we totally stand by what we do and aren't gonna change that for anything. Our central love story is between a six-year-old kid and a hideous 80-year-old lady, you know? I feel really prideful that we got that on the air."

Check out the rest of our chat, including scoop on his 'Jump Street' costar Channing Tatum and his next project that'll reunite him with some old pals, after the jump.

Holly Robinson Peete Describes Upcoming '21 Jump Street' Movie Cameo (VIDEO)

Holly Robinson Peete talks about '21 Jump Street' on 'The Talk'Back in the '80s, when Johnny Depp was a TV heartthrob, Holly Robinson Peete was his '21 Jump Street' co-star, playing Officer Judy Hoffs. Monday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), Peete talked about returning to '21 Jump Street,' but this time in the movie version, which stars Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Depp himself.

"I came back as Officer Judy Hoffs," she said. "I brought the big hair with me, the '80s hair with me."

Peete said she had fun filming for one day in New Orleans with Tatum and Hill, but that fans shouldn't expect too much screen time for Hoffs. "Don't blink 'cause you might miss me," she said. The movie version is expected to be released sometime next year.

Johnny Depp Laughs About Filming a Sexy Scene With Angelina Jolie (VIDEO)

Johnny Depp Laughs About Filming a Sexy Scene With Angelina JolieOn the new 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Johnny Depp cracked up while discussing a sexy scene involving himself and Angelina Jolie. Still, for some people -- possibly including Depp's girlfriend -- this might not be a laughing matter. And things are made more complicated by the fact that Depp has worked with Angelina's partner, Brad Pitt.

Johnny and Jolie co-star in the upcoming thriller 'The Tourist.' Depp's latest film contains a link to his first major acting job -- his role on the 1980s teen drama '21 Jump Street.' Mr. Brad Pitt was on that show too (here's a fairly hilarious video featuring the two of them). But all of that was a long, long time ago ...

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 18th 2010 6:01PM
DamagesHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Defying Gravity is one of those shows where I said "oh, I have to start watching that," and then it was gone from ABC. I guess there have been several shows like that in recent years. I can say the same thing about Damages and Durham County, but at least those two shows are still around.

Guess I'm interested in shows that begin with the letter D this week.

  • 21 Jump Street - Season 1
  • Cranford: Return to Cranford and The Collection (Cranford/Return to Cranford)
  • Dallas - Season 12
  • Damages - Season 2
  • Defying Gravity - Complete Series
  • Durham County - Season 1

Johnny Depp would love to appear in the 21 Jump Street movie

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 24th 2009 5:30PM
21 Jump St.The first bit of news is that there's actually going to be a 21 Jump Street movie. Jonah Hill is writing a big-screen adaptation of the 80s FOX drama where young-looking cops go undercover to bust bad guys. He wrote a cameo scene for Depp, and Depp thinks such a cameo would be "hilarious." Depp wouldn't be playing his 21 Jump Street character, he'll actually play Jack Sparrow, his character from Pirates of the Caribbean. That's the weird twist to the cameo.

Well, no. Though Hill hasn't said what role Depp would play. I can only assume that he'll be playing the same part as he did years ago, though who knows. He could be playing Johnny Depp playing Tom Hanson, one of those meta "TV-show-within-a-movie" things. Hill does say that the show's theme song will be in the movie.

If you forgot what that theme song sounded like, take a listen after the jump.

Best '80s TV Shows

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 13th 2009 6:00AM
Family TiesIt may have been the Me Decade.

But in TV land, the sisters were doin' it for themselves and finally getting respect as cops, war nurses and working moms; iconic shows like 'Hill Street Blues,' 'St. Elsewhere' and 'L.A. Law' would forever change (for the better) cop, medical and legal dramas; and no idea was too high concept to fill a primetime spot (time-travelling physicist? check; housewife-turned-CIA op? check; New York City beauty in love with a subterranean monster? check).

The bottom line: They all add up to 10 years of fine channel surfing -- and our awesome list of the 40 best series of the 1980s.

Jeff Yagher from Star Trek: VoyagerI got a great letter this week from a TV fan named Jim R.

"Dear TV Squad, About 15 years ago, I watched an episode of a scifi/fantasy TV show wherein an Elvis impersonator traveled back in time to meet (and eventually kill) the real Elvis. Could you please tell me the name of this program? Thanks"

Stephen J. Cannell shows now on iTunes - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 30th 2008 2:21PM

21 Jump StreetI haven't gotten into iTunes video yet. My iTunes music file keeps getting fatter and fatter, but I haven't done anything with video yet. I'm content with buying DVDs and using YouTube and AOL TV for my video needs. But if more stuff like this gets put on iTunes, I might change my mind.

Stephen J. Cannell is starting to put his shows on the music/video service. Granted, the first batch of shows aren't anything I'm interested in (the list includes Hunter, Silk Stalkings, Wiseguy, and 21 Jump Street, with a young Johnny Depp), but I do hope it's successful so we'll see more of the Cannell shows that I'm interested in (though if I'm really interested in them, I probably already own the DVDs). This promises to be just the first group of shows, with more to follow later this year.

One show I do like watching again that is included in this batch is The Greatest American Hero. After the jump, the catchy theme song to the William Katt/Robert Culp/Connie Sellecca series from the 80s.

A complete list of Christmas shows on DVD

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 15th 2006 2:08PM

Ozzie & Harriet XmasTVShowsonDVD has a cool list of all of the TV shows currently available on DVD that contain holiday episodes.

Now, at first glance it just looks like their regular list of TV shows that are available on television in general, but if you look closer you'll see that they actually tell you what season set has the holiday episodes. For example, say you want to see what Johnny Depp and the other cops on 21 Jump Street did for Christmas. That would be the season 2 DVD set. Or maybe you wanted to see what seasons of M*A*S*H had a Christmas episode, and that would be the season 1, 5, 7, 9, and 10 sets. There are even some sets that are nothing but Christmas episodes, like the America's Funniest Home Videos: Home For The Holidays set or the Christmas episodes DVD from Ozzie & Harriet.

The list is worth it just to see that Xena: Warrior Princess had a Christmas episode, in season 2. Wow.
