Sometimes you have to dance with the date that brought you, and though he's moved on to much greener pastures, Johnny Depp will indeed return to the film version of 21 JUMP STREET, the show where his career got its first big boost.
It's unclear what his cameo will entail in the action comedy, which stars Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Brie Larson, and Ice Cube, but according to Coming Soon it's confirmed. Jonah Hill said he thought the cameo was "really funny."
Some stars hold their early careers with disdain, so it's nice that Depp is doing this for the film. He was on the original show for four seasons, and it gave him enough visibility to get involved with Tim Burton, John Waters, and well, we all know how that turned out. Hopefully the film, directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, will bring the action and the funny.
