Channing Tatum In The Running For 21 Jump Street!

| Filed under: Film FlickersJohnny DeppJonah HillChanning Tatum


There's not too many men that could compete with Johnny Depp's seksiness, but we think they may have found one!

Channing Tatum is reportedly in the running for the lead role in Sony Pictures' film reboot of the '80s series 21 Jump Street, alongside Jonah Hill!

According to sources, the studio has met with a plethora of potentials, but they especially liked the pairing of Tatum and Hill together as undercover officers working against crime in high schools.

We do, too!

We've yet to really see Tatum take on a comedic role, but we think he has a lot of potential! Maybe this reboot won't completely suck!

What do U think?? Do U like Tatum and Hill for the movie??

    i thinkhe would do pretty good at a comedic role. i hope he gets it, it would great to see him take on a different kind of role.

    I feel that Channing Tatum was MUCH better looking 4 or 5 years ago. The stocky look suits him okay, but the lean, defined look in his crappier movies such as "She's the Man" and "Step Up”. . . And Johnny Depp is just a grease ball. He always looks Bohemian/greasy. Great actor. But nothing much to look at. I want to bathe him.

    Does the studio honestly think either one of those guys could pass as a high school student? This makes no sense at all.

  4. 4

    These guys are supposed to be undercover as high school kids? Give me a break.

    really??? cuz Rob has the pouty thing with his mouth, the hair and over all look (when he's clean shaven) - nothing I've ever seen this guy have. not that i want to see rob doing it but just cuz you want this dude to butt plug you doesn't mean he has the "potential" - you don't know anything about potential anyway…..sliimy, the enrique englesias look alike, etc…….

    Poor choice. Channing is not bad looking except he looks old for the part. There is no replacement for Johnny. He's one of the greatest actors of the moment. Perhaps they should rename the show 21 Dump Street!

    Is Hollywood out of new ideas??? Why keep making remakes? They are usually NEVER as good as the original anyways…so why do they bother??? Totally fed up!

    Why not get Taylor Lautner? He's young enough to pass as a credible high school detective!
    Even those actors in "Gleeks" look too old to be credible. Crappy show!

    Nope, it doesn't matter who they link to this POS, it's gonna suck. Don't be fooled by a pretty face.

    Even Jonah Hill looks too old to play the role of "Johnny's sidekick." It would be an awful remake of a classic.

    Why not get Taylor Lautner and Nick Jonas for the parts????

    I'm not really a fan of Channing Tatum, but I am a Johnny Depp fan. I have all the seasons of 21 Jump Street and I don't think Channing Tatum would fit in this movie. I wish they wouldn't remake it the original will always be the best in my opinion.

  16. 16

    they always gotta throw a jew in there.

  17. 17

    Again, a serious lack of new, original ideas on TV and in the movies.

  18. 18

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – I totally agree with you. why mess up a classic

  19. 19

    When did 21 Jump Street become a comedy? Agreed that Penhall was funny sometimes but the show wasn't a comedy by any means. They must really be reaching.

  20. 20

    how do I say this? NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. Channing Tatum sucks, he's stupid, etc etc and Johnny Depp is wonderful and amazing etc etc. Johnny D is irreplaceable.

    OH..come on!this guy is not for the movie and the fat gay?? are you serious?? Don't do nothing..THERE IS ONLY ONE JOHNNY DEPP,GORGEOUS UNIQUE AND BEST ACTOR,That's why I love him
