Holly Robinson Peete Is Having A Tough Time Getting A Cameo In This New 21 Jump Street Reboot

Holly Robinson Peete is not having a great Monday guys. You see, while she is very happy with the news that Ice Cube has joined the cast of the upcoming 21 Jump Street reboot, the original Officer Judy Hoffs can't even get a callback for a cameo. What's the deal Jonah Hill?

Clearly taking a note from fellow actor Chloe Moretz, Peete decided to let this all play out on her Twitter. "21Jumpstreet movie up and rolling. Love @IceCube casting as Captain... wanna do a cameo but Jonah Hill won't return my calls LOL," she wrote. Rude.

Hill is writing and starring in the flick, alongside Ice Cube and Channing Tatum. Emma Stone had been in talks to play Hoffs, but dropped out to do Spiderman. Is Hill holding out on Johnny Depp for a cameo? Does he actually believe that may happen?

Hopefully this all works out for Peete and, if not, a Hangin' with Mr. Cooper reboot is no doubt right around the corner.

    If that's her way of approaching the subject it means one of a few things:
    1. Her agent wouldn't make a call to inquire.
    2. Her agent DID make a call to inquire and was given a: "We're going another way" answer.
    3. Sharon Osbourne wouldn't make the call for her.
    Here's hoping Seth and the studio play nice and offer them all a quick scene. (Especially Grieco.)

  • I heard Johnny Depp wanted a role as well and the same deal. I am confused about what this reboot is going to be all about.

  • Looking forward to this reboot.

  • Technically speaking, The 21 Jump Street movie is not a reboot. It's a film version of the television show. A reboot is when a work in question is done over again, introducing the same characters in the same medium as a previous work.
    In this world of reboots, remakes, and adaptations it's an easy thing to forget.
    That being said, Holly Robinson Peet is looking a bit desperate if she's putting it out there on twitter like that. We're a little embarrassed for her. But We're sure the "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper" movie is going to be epic.

    It would appear HRP is having trouble getting callbacks for cameos in pretty much anything...

    My God its not a "Reboot" its a remake! For it to be a reboot there would have to already been a 21 Jump Street film franchise, which there hasn't.
    I don't find anything wrong or bad with talking about things like this on Twitter. People can be so cynical. Johnny spoke about wanting to cameo as well, and HE never got anything back yet. So it has nothing to do with celebrity status, as we can conclude.
    By the way...Emma Stone was not in talks to play Hoffs or any already established character from the show.
