Johnny Depp will make an uncredited cameo in the new 21 Jump Street flick, Entertainment Weekly reports.
The TV series, which ran from 1987-1990, made the dreamy Depp a star. Now, Channing Tatum, Dave Franco (James' bro) and Jonah Hill will star in the re-make.
Tatum will play Officer Tom Hanson (Depp's role on the TV show), who, just like in the series, goes undercover as a high school student to fight youth crime. No word on who Depp will play in the big-screen version.
Depp was just 24 when he started on the series. See a pic of him back then and find out what Depp told EW about the cameo after the jump.
A cameo from Depp has been speculated about for the better part of a year. In an interview last year, the superstar spoke to EW about the possibility.
â€œSomeone will say, â€˜Whatever happened to Tom Hanson?â€™ and theyâ€™ll find me somewhere hoarding jars of peanut butter and shaking in my underpants,â€ he said.
That's not the sexy pirate we know! What kind of cameo do you want to see Johnny make?
