Johnny Depp closer to “21 Jump Street” cameo

By Sean O’Connell So Tom Hanson’s going to pop up in the planned “21 Jump Street” remake after all.

Or, at least, the actor who played the fresh-faced undercover cop will appear, and since his name is Johnny Depp, that qualifies as major news.

Rumors have been floating for some time now that Depp wanted in on the remake, if only in a cameo role. Depp acted prior to “Jump Street,” a popular TV drama, but the show really skyrocketed his career.

Now sources close to the remake tell that “a small, uncredited Depp cameo does indeed look likely to happen,” though “no details are available yet on what character Depp might play in the film, which begins shooting this month with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in the lead roles.”

How couyld you cast Depp and not ask him to play Hanson? The only question is if Depp’s willing to cut and style his hair into that sweet ‘80s do’ for the remake?
