Jonah Hill’s Hilarious ‘SNL’ Promo: 22, 23 and 24 Jump Street

Jonah HillConsidering the success of Jonah Hill’s last hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, his Oscar nomination for his role in Moneyball, and his highly anticipated upcoming comedy 21 Jump Street, the fact that he’s heading back to SNL to host this Saturday makes a good deal of sense.

Hill has taken up with his Superbad costar Bill Hader for your usual SNL promo shtick: jokes that start off with relevance to the actor’s career and then descend into absurd silliness. In other words, the perfect formula for comedy. In the below clip, Hill answers the question that has been around since the 1980s: what exists at 22 Jump Street? And 23? And 24? The answers may surprise you.
Watch Jonah Hill and The Shins on SNL this Satruday at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
