Sponsored Tingles: 21 Jump Street Hollywood Bromance #3 - Leonardo DiCaprio and Lukas Haas
In anticipation of the theatrical release and to highlight the bond between Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum), we’ve been featuring a series of posts celebrating Hollywood Bromances. Click here to see them if you’ve missed our previous posts.
On Monday we featured RDJ and Jude Law. Today it’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Lukas Haas.
There is no Leo without Lukas. And there’s certainly no Lukas without Leo. Leonardo DiCaprio and Lukas Haas have been friends for 20 years. Or more. They met when they were both auditioning. They’d always be up for the same parts. It was Leo and Lukas and Tobey and Kevin Connolly and they all picked up David Blaine somewhere along the line too. Lukas hit it early with Witness. Then, as we know, Leo took over the world. He brought his boys along on his rapid ascent. The Pussy Posse ruled New York.
And then adulthood arrived. Tobey married and had kids. And I wonder, I wonder if Lukas hasn’t done the same because he doesn’t want to leave Leo. Lukas is the one who’ll never leave. Who will come to Portofino on a moment’s notice. Who will tag along when Leo’s invited onto Roman Abramovich’s boat for New Year’s Eve. Who can drop anything when Leo calls. Or is it that Lukas can’t do the same because he can’t give up the one role he knows best: Leo’s BFF.
The models, they come and go. But in Lukas, Leo has the ultimate secret keeper, his most trusted consigliere, the only one who will never betray him. The one, perhaps, who’ll never fall in love, never give up the party card, never put a girl, or babies, before the boys.
Here’s a new 21 Jump Street trailer:

In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier—and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.
