21 JumpStreet pulls out the big guns! For those of you who caught 21 jump street this past weekend---besides getting your laugh on, most likely you also experienced a moment of shock when Johnny Depp graced the screen!
That's right, JD, one of the biggest stars in the world, made jokes with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in the reboot of 21 Jump street.
So how did depp get there anyway? Screenwriter Michael Bacall explained that star Jonah Hill, who was also a writer on the film, wanted to approach Johnny Depp early in the process and heard that the mega-star who got his start on the 80's FOX series might be interested in making an appearance in the film, but wanted to make sure his character "Tom Hanson" was given proper closure.
And while Depp's appearance in the film is fairly brief, the star made an immediate impact on set. Phil Lord the co director of the flick told Moviefone that " "Basically, on a movie set that we were supposed to be in charge, you realize how not in charge of anything you are. How crazy that can make a set. And then you realize instantly why someone like that is such a big movie star. He walks on set, there's no smoking on set. 'OK, no problem.' He's smoking. You're like, 'Of course!' That's what makes him awesome."
So despite Depps disregard for the smoking policies, everyone on the film agreed he was a great addition to the flick and awesome to work with. Lord said, . "Such a creative guy. Such a genuine person, great improviser. Game. Doesn't take himself so seriously. It was like, 'I understand why he makes a kajillion dollars.' He's awesome. Everything you would hope for in a movie star, he's it."
