Adam Scott has appreciation for Channing Tatum's backside

Adam Scott loves Channing Tatum's booty

It's so nice when Hollywood actors drop the competition and show some appreciation for each other — as "Friends With Kids" star Adam Scott has done for "21 Jump Street" actor Channing Tatum. And his backside.

"That guy looks like he was sculpted out of ivory," he says before proceeding to tell Details magazine with great gusto that adult stores should use Tatum's tush as a model for making certain sex toys. "Sorry for everything I just said," he adds.

It's OK, Adam. The Ministry won't judge; we'll just share.

Scott must be thrilled for the forthcoming movie "Magic Mike," wherein Tatum will shake that ivory rear end alongside Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer and Matthew McConaughey. And Adam has a thing or two going on in his own career.

Starring alongside Jon Hamm's main squeeze Jennifer Westfeldt in "Kids," Scott's on a trajectory for feature stardom in between his fan-favorite stint on "Parks and Recreation." But he's still just a dad at heart.

"Aziz [Ansari] always has to fly somewhere really awesome, do stand-up, and then hang out with some kick-ass people afterward who'll all tell him how rad he is," Scott said of his "Parks" costar.

"And I'm going to a 4-year- old’s birthday party."

'21 Jump Street': With Tatum and Hill, 'All the hotness is here'

Last year, Jonah Hill established that he had dramatic acting chops in "Moneyball," as his supporting role in the baseball film earned him an Oscar nomination. This year, the actor's "21 Jump Street" costar Channing Tatum is out to prove the opposite: That he can crack a joke.

Hill, who co-wrote the story that plays off of the '80s television series that launched Johnny Depp's career, said he intentionally sought out Tatum for the movie because the actor didn't have a comedic background.

"I wanted someone in the part who didn't come from doing a lot of comedies so it would feel fresh to people to see someone do something they've never done before," he explained on the red carpet at the film's Tuesday night premiere in Hollywood.

"I got that opportunity last year with 'Moneyball,' and I was so happy with the way it turned out that I wanted to do that for somebody else."

Tatum, who grew up watching the TV show every Friday night with his sister, said the project intrigued him because it was a "complete departure" from the program he knew and loved.

"The show is like a very serious drama, and ours is 'Bad Boys' meets a John Hughes movie," Hill added.

In the movie, the actors are Jenko and Schmidt, two inept cops who are sent by a harsh police captain, played by Ice Cube, on an undercover mission to bust a high school drug ring.

Asked why he believed this is the right time to bring back "21 Jump Street," Ice Cube had this to say: "Jonah's ready to do it, you know what I mean? He's hot. Channing's hot. I'm hot. All the hotness is here."

"21 Jump Street" opens Friday.

'The Vow' premiere: Making Channing Tatum, Rachel McAdams cry

It's no secret that "The Vow," the romantic drama starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams, is a tear-jerker. So what movies cause its stars to get a little emotional?

"I cry at 'Finding Neverland,'" Tatum admitted at the Hollywood premiere of the film Monday evening.

"Oh, yeah. That's a sad one," McAdams agreed, adding that the film that always gets her is "The Way We Were."

"I mean, I woke my sister up [from crying so loud]. She was sleeping while I was watching it and woke up and was, like, 'What's wrong? What's going on here?'"

"The Vow" is sure to induce a few sobbing sessions of its own when it hits theaters Friday. The film is based on the real-life tale of Krickitt Carpenter, a newlywed who got into an automobile accident and lost all memory of her husband, Kim.

The Carpenters, who attended the premiere, said "The Vow" filmmakers spent time studying video interviews of the couple to "nail their personalities."

"The way in which it's done is very moving. I cried," Kim Carpenter said. "Rachel and Channing just did an unbelievable job, and I think their portrayal was just dead on."

Meanwhile, the young women lining Hollywood Boulevard may have been eager to catch a glimpse of Tatum, but we were more excited to catch up with Scott Speedman. That's right, ladies, Ben from "Felicity."

Speedman, who has mostly stuck to independent films since the college soap concluded in 2002, told us he enjoyed playing McAdams' character's jerky ex-fiancé.

"This is my first time in a while I've done a big ... movie," he said. "[Before], I was just wanting to do darker, weirder things, and now I'm trying to do bigger things."

And, we had to ask: Might there be a "Felicity" reunion in the cards? And if so, where would Ben be in his life?

"I thought it'd funny if he was in a darker place," Speedman said of his old character. When the show ended, "he was trying to be a doctor; I think maybe he didn't make it, though."

Channing Tatum tried his hand (and chest) at hosting "Saturday Night Live" on Saturday, winning over audiences with his stripper moves and Matthew McConaughey impersonation.

"The Vow" actor took jabs at his pre-Hollywood days working as a male stripper, the inspiration for this summer's beeftastic "Magic Mike," using his monologue to lay down some ground rules.

"No touching. I can touch you, you can't touch me. Tips are appreciated; the only reason I'm hosting this show is to put myself through nursing school," he said. 

After the mandatory abdominal show, Tatum worked his way through sketches playing folks such as Tom Brady and his "Magic Mike" costar Matthew McConaughey.

In a sketch called "Getting Freaky with Cee-Lo," Tatum nails McConaguhey's syrupy Southern drawl and liberated hard body. 

A solid showing from Tatum, especially those stripper moves in the monologue, which you can watch below with another clip. All right, all right, all right
