Ice Cube will rejoin Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in 22 Jump Street
Although it shouldn’t come as a surprise, Ice Cube has officially rejoined Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in the 21 JUMP STREET sequel, 22 JUMP STREET. Ice Cube played Captain Dickson in the first film and will be back to give Schmidt and Jenko a hard time, this time presumably as they go to college. The role of Dickson in 21 JUMP STREET was a tiny one, but Ice Cube did well with what he had, delivering his jokes well and embracing the cliche of the angry police Captain.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller are set to return to direct and IMDB has Wyatt Russell set to star in the film as well, but other than him, Tatum, Hill and now Cube, that’s it as far as confirmed returns. Dakota Johnson, of course, was recently cast in the FIFTY SHADES OF GREY adaptation, so her involvement in 22 JUMP STREET is in doubt. Regardless of who returns, I’m stoked for the sequel since 21 JUMP STREET was one of the best comedies of last year. (THR)
