Johnny Depp has already filmed his cameo for the upcoming movie version of the 80's TV cop show that launched his career and made him famous. 21 Jump Street ran for 6 seasons, with Depp starring in the first 4. Depp played a police officer assigned to an elite squad of young undercover cops who infiltrate high schools and fight crime. He was reportedly paid $45,000 per episode.
The TV cast starred: Richard Greico, Holly Robinson, Dustin Nguyen, Peter DeLuise and their captain, Steve Williams.
The cast for the movie stars: Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill (who also co-wrote the script), Ice Cube, Brie Larson and Rob Riggle.
Depp recently told David Letterman he didn't enjoy his stint on that show. But obviously he's grateful enough for it, that he agreed to do the cameo. Peter DeLuise, son of Dom, also makes a cameo.
I wish Dustin Nguyen would make an appearance too. He's still so hot!
You might recognize the female lead Brie Larson from Showtime's, United States of Tara.
