Jonah Hill caused airport security scare

  • 15/03/2012

Actor Jonah Hill was recently stopped by airport security agents while making his way to New York - because he was still covered in explosive material from the 21 Jump Street set.

The Superbad funnyman was in Louisiana wrapping up an action scene with co-star Channing Tatum when he realised he was running short on time and in danger of missing his flight to the Big Apple.

Hill then rushed to the airport where he was promptly whisked away for questioning by Transportation Security Administration officials, who found explosive residue in his hair.

He says, "I was on set all night shooting this action scene with Channing and I had to go fly back to New York. And I go to the airport and they were like, 'Sir, we need to pull you in a back room and examine you.' And I'm like, 'What?'

"And apparently, because we're shooting guns and there's all these action scenes, I had explosive matter from my head to my toe and they thought I was a terrorist and I was bringing explosive matter onto the plane.

"It was like two hours (that) I was stuck in the room! And then finally one of the guys in the room was like, 'Hey, that's Jonah Hill! He's an actor, he's not a terrorist!' And they let me go."
