Ellie Kemper to seduce Channing Tatum in 21 Jump Street
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Production has already started and stills are already popping up for 21 JUMP STREET, but apparently there’s room for one more casting addition in the form of BRIDESMAIDS star Ellie Kemper. The actress and ‘The Office’ regular will play a young teacher that gets the hots for Channing Tatum’s character. Those of you familiar with the ’21 Jump Street’ TV show know that it focuses on a police squad that goes undercover in high school to catch bad guys. So the question is whether Tatum’s character will let Kemper’s advances slide or if he’ll bust her for…wait…is it illegal to sleep with your teacher in high school if you’re 30 years old? I’m not sure how that works.
Chris Miller and Phil Lord are directing the film that stars Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Brie Larson and Dave Franco. Of course, the big news is the cameo by series alum Johnny Depp, but we’re assured there’s going to be more to the movie than that.
