The actors bonded on set of ’21 Jump Street’ so quickly that even their co-stars picked up on the blossoming friendship, including hip hop icon Ice Cube.
The 42-year-old former N.W.A star jokes: "White men love bro-mances, man. They are very into it. God bless them. Hopefully they'll be happy together.”
Phil Lord, who co-directed the remake of the 80s series, also spotted the chemistry. He laughed: "They love each other – they have a for-real romance."

He explained: "I was actually on the ‘Tonight Show’ today, and some reality-show woman saw Channing on a plane and she said, 'I think Channing's mad at me because I tweeted he was on the plane’. And I was like, 'That's not true, because I've never seen Channing be mad at anybody'."
