Funny or Die alum Rob Riggle may join 21 Jump Street
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Rob Riggle (from ‘Funny or Die’ and THE OTHER GUYS) is in negotiations to join Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Brie Larson and Ice Cube in the movie 21 JUMP STREET. Riggle will play the main villain in the film although we’re not sure as to what capacity that will be in. Maybe he’ll be the principal that gives the baby-faced cops a hard time? Or possibly a drug king who is using the high school kiddies as drug mules? I don’t know, I just know he’ll be a bad guy. Look for a confirmation of cast soon as filming is set to start later this month with the final product being released March 16, 2012.
Since filming is set to start soon, I wonder if Jonah Hill managed to get in touch with Johnny Depp for a cameo. I just can’t imagine 21 JUMP STREET minus Depp and I definitely can’t fathom a writer or director not taking an actor of his caliber up on the offer to do a cameo. Maybe they are just keeping it all under wraps.
