Who Will Take Over Johnny Depp's Role In The 21 Jump Street Movie?

| Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersJohnny DeppJonah Hill

zef balbona rumored to take over johnny depps role in new 21 jump street movie

As much as the thought of casting someone other than Johnny Depp as 21 Jump Street police officer Tom Hanson seems pretty sacrilegious, we'll try to go into this one with a positive outlook.

Newcomer Zef Balbona has been listed on IMDB as a rumored actor for the 21 Jump Street lead character.

Balbona has no previous credits, aside from Manchester Bomber #2 in the 2008 film Body of Lies.

Other rumored cast members include Emma Stone and Harry Cook. Confirmed cast members include Jonah Hill and Julianne Hough.

We're still not sure how we feel about the project, but we'll give Balbona the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise. And of course we'd LOVE to see Emma Stone confirm her role in the film.

What do U think about Zef Balbona? Could he be the new Johnny Depp?

    Is it just me or does this dude look like Eminem? a gay Eminem…

  2. 2

    I hope they find someone that can fill out Johnny Depps pants. He always showed a big bulge on jump street.

  3. 3

    No one. Absolutely no one can take Depp's role in 21 Jump Street, and certainly NOT THIS GUY. They shouldn't even try - it will be a waste of time. It's the same thing with David Cassidy in the Partridge Family series - no one in the whole world can replace him… not even Justin Bieber.

    Some parts are just irreplaceable. Period. God those men were so beyond hot and gorgeous back in the day. Holy Smokes, it's getting warm in here.

    He is no Johnny Depp.

  5. 5

    Who will play Holly Robinsons part ???

    @LaLaLams, who are you to say "certainly NOT THIS GUY" you havent even seen his work. You're looking at a picture and talking shit. Be patient im sure you'll be in for a suprise

  7. 7

    I think that this guy would do great ..
    not saying that he can replace Depp but definitely can fill in for some of his old movies he has the look for it and I believe he would do an amazing job

  8. 8

    Go Zef! you're gorgeous, with a ton of potential… make the shqipes proud!

  9. 9

  12. 12

    Anyone who knows Zef Balbona in real life, knows he resembles Johnny Depp like no other! I can't wait to see him in action. He will be amazing

  13. 13

    is it me or does this look likedude a guy whos trying to fight his need to be in drag???

  14. 14

    I've never heard of this guy, but If he does get cast I'm hope he does a good job. I will say I love 21 jumpstreet, and Johnny Depp as Tom Hanson.

  15. 15

    Kid has something to him, a "Johnny Depp," something to him. I'll give him a chance. Plus, we already know he's got great hair and leather looks good on him.

    Oh, and for those with bad things to say: you shouldn't let your lack of success get in the way of your happiness for others. But if you can't help it (which I know you can't) at least try to disguise it better. =)

    I used to like 21 Jump Street but a movie about it? Hmmm…not so interested.

  18. 18

    @ miss chloe i just clicked on ur profile and saw how many ppl you hate on , you should use the " is it just me …Drag" line more often i dont think you have used it enough today lol

    FIRST OF ALL!! OF COURSE U CANT replace the original. but you can def find a 99% match. whoever this guy is I SWEAR I THOUGHT it was a younger version of johnny depp. THE movies gonna be HUGE im a huge 21 jumpstreet fan. SO for some reason I KNOW this guy is gonna get the part. RIGHT when i saw the pic. IM NEVER WRONG!!!!!!!! CONGRATZ ZEF BALBONA do us true 21 JUMP street fans justice….

  21. Dmunz says – reply to this


    I dunno. He Kinda looks like him just a thinner face. Yea good thing too kuz Depp is starting to look old… we need a new generation of heartthrobs!!!!

  22. 22

    Re: Big-packageRe: rickraton – lmao…

    I believe no one could ever be the next Johnny Depp. He's irreplaceable. Any guy that tries to be like him will only be second rate.

  23. 23

    I Think zoe saldana should play Holly Robinsons part :-)

  24. 24

    i've seen zef in person ahha and he loooks just like a younger johnny depp ! hes gonna do great playing tom hanson..

    and Mrmogul stop making up lies bro cause you sound like a dumbass.

  25. 25

    No! There should be no remake, especially with Jonah Hill (???)! They're gonna turn into some dumb "funny" movie, something completely different from the show just like they've done with all the other remake movies about CLASSIC GOOD tv shows that NEED TO BE LEFT ALONE!!!! THIS IS A FUCKING TRAVESTY!

  26. 26

    This is a HELL NO

    hmmmm I don't know..There could be something good about this casting choice. I mean, there will never be another Depp, but this guy seems good. I think it's only fair to give him a chance and see what he can do. He does kinda resemble Depp though.

  29. 29

    Skeet Ulrich might have a younger brother who could fill the role?

  30. 30

    Wow he's pretty new. I kind of like this guys look! Where can I see more of him?

  31. 31

    Wow he DOES look like Johnny Depp.. What a hottie, I can't wait to see more of him!!!
