Hot for Teacher! Johnny Depp's "21 Jump Street" Cameo Revealed! 


Johnny Depp rose to fame in the 1980s as a teenage heartthrob in the hit TV show "21 Jump Street." With the film version now in production, it is nice to hear that Depp has not forgotten what made him a big star.

The actor is set to make a cameo as a teacher! According to Life & Style Magazine, "Johnny makes a cameo as a teacher and he bumps into his 'old' character in the halls of the high school."

Aw...

Depp, of course, starred in the series as the lead detective Tom Hanson. It's interesting to note that on the pilot episode of the show, Jeff Yagher played the character but was replaced in the next episode by Depp. I wonder whatever happened to Yagher.

Jonah Hill co-wrote the script of the movie version and is also one of the stars. He promises that his take on "21 Jump Street" will appeal to the adult crowd. Is he saying that this film will be smart? Hill says, "It's an "R-rated, insane, 'Bad Boys'-meets-John Hughes type movie. We're not even spoofing the [original], it's not strictly comedic, either. We're doing a full-on action movie, blowing s--- up."

So will Depp's co-stars in the show also make cameo appearances? Will Holly Robinson Peete (Judy Hoffs), Dustin Nguyen (Harry Truman Loki), and Peter DeLuise (Doug Penhall) bump into their old characters too?

We'll find out when "21 Jump Street" hits theaters March of 2012.
