Actor Johnny Depp will be in New Orleans tomorrow to shoot his cameo for the new 21 Jump Street theatrical remake, which just started filming on Monday. Another cast member from the original 21 Jump Street TV series, Peter DeLuise, will also be on hand, shooting his cameo alongside Depp. Here's what an insider had to say about both upcoming cameo apperances.
Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise shoot 21 Jump Street cameos tomorrow in New Orleans
"Depp will be arriving at Second Line Stages in New Orleans, Louisiana, tomorrow to film his cameo for the film. The slot for his role is only labeled as "D.B." Jonah Hill & Channing Tatum will be off camera, while Peter DeLuise will join Depp in what appears to be one of the first scenes for the film. Second Line Stages is located at 800 Richard St. New Orleans, LA, and was recently occupied by Warner Bros' upcoming superhero movie Green Lantern."
This is the first we've heard that Peter DeLuise will make a cameo appearance in 21 Jump Street. It is unknown if the rest of the 21 Jump Street original cast, such as Holly Robinson Peete and Dustin Nguyen, will appear in the remake.
We reported back in February that Jonah Hill had written a cameo role for Johnny Depp, although Johnny Depp had not been confirmed for the role until just recently. It isn't known if he will be portraying his original character, Officer Tom Hanson, or a different character.
21 Jump Street was released March 16th, 2012 and stars Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Brie Larson, Dave Franco, Rob Riggle, DeRay Davis, Ice Cube, Dax Flame. The film is directed by Phil Lord, Chris Miller.
