As a star of the original “21 Jump Street” television show, Holly Robinson Peete reveals she will have a cameo in the new film, but how does the film differ from the TV show? Plus, what was it like working with Johnny Depp before he became a megastar? Also, she has guest starred on “Mike and Molly” a few times already, so how many more times is she scheduled to be on the show?
Despite her exit from “The Talk,” the star nabbed a cameo in the upcoming big screen reboot of “21 Jump Street,” based on her classic TV series that co-starred Johnny Depp.
“I was given an opportunity to do a cameo in the movie… it’s not your parent’s ‘21 Jump Street,’” she told Billy of the movie due out in March. “It’s Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, they have tremendous chemistry; it’s very tongue-in-cheek and very funny and lots of cussing!”
Based on the trailer.
Back in the ’80s, when Johnny Depp was a TV heartthrob, Holly Robinson Peete was his ’21 Jump Street’ co-star, playing Officer Judy Hoffs. Monday on ‘The Talk’ (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), Peete talked about returning to ’21 Jump Street,’ but this time in the movie version, which stars Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Depp himself.
“I came back as Officer Judy Hoffs,” she said. “I brought the big hair with me, the ’80s hair with me.”
Peete said she had fun filming for one day in New Orleans with Tatum and Hill, but that fans shouldn’t expect too much screen time for Hoffs. “Don’t blink ’cause you might miss me,” she said. The movie version is expected to be released sometime next year.
