We're so happy to hear that he's doing this! Especially after he spent such a long time distancing himself from the original!
Johnny Depp has OFFICIALLY signed on to appear in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of 21 Jump Street, in a brief cameo role!
According to star Jonah Hill, who stars with Channing Tatum as a pair of undercover cops assigned to work in High Schools, the actor will appear in a "really funny" role! Ice Cube, Brie Larson, and Dave Franco will also be appearing!
Excellent! We can't even begin to imagine what Depp will be doing, but it must be pretty GOOD if he officially accepted!
Looking forward to finding out!
