One of our contributors, Travis, had the opportunity to be an extra on the first day of shooting for 21 Jump Street Monday in New Orleans. He not only participated in the shoot but also got to hang out with the movie’s stars, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill!
Check out all of Travis’s pictures and his report from the set below:
Today marks the first day of principle production on Sony’s “21 Jump Street” and I had the opportunity to meet with actors Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.
When I saw Channing I ran right up to him and told him that I hope he has a very Happy Birthday tomorrow (4/26) and he was so grateful that he kept telling me that he appreciated that! Next, I had asked him for a photo and be obliged and we took not only one, but two! He was so cool and willing to take the photos with me! He is a very nice and down to earth person. Later on during the day I spotted Jonah Hill and I asked him for a photo and he said yes, of course.
I was used for a tiny scene but was not seen so I will have another opportunity to film and be seen. The scene that I was filming was pretending to talk to a cop partner of mine and then going into our separate cars and we did that for 10 times straight. But for the rest of the time I was chilling in Extras Holding.
I do not consider the day a complete loss because I got pics with the two lead actors, talked to them, and they were cool so I am so happy right now!
