Channing Tatum Spoofs JCVD's Splits Stunt on '22 Jump Street' Set
If you've been on the Internet at all this past week, then you've probably seen an epic splits stunt performed by veteran action star Jean-Claude Van Damme where he performs the trademark legs spread maneuver between two moving Volvo semi-trucks moving in reverse. It's one of the most impressive things you'll ever seen. Well, not to be outdone, Channing Tatum decided to perform his own stunt as Jenko on the set of 22 Jump Street. It's a great, timely spoof, and it's also a first look at what Jenko looks like undercover in college. It seems like he's playing somewhat of a douchebag if he's wearing that Affliction shirt. Watch now!
Channing Tatum tweeted the stunt video saying, "This stunt was preformed by unprofessionals," so here:
22 Jump Street is directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The LEGO Movie) and written by Michael Bacall (21 Jump Street, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) and Oren Uziel (Kitchen Sink). This time Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) find themselves undercover at a local college, but no details on the case have been revealed. Ice Cube also returns as the undercover unit's captain, and Sony Pictures releases the sequel on June 13th 2014 next summer. Cool?
