Ice Cube Will Captain the 21 Jump Street Movie

Well I have to admit, this is probably the best bit of news when it comes to the “21 Jump Street” movie yet. Mind you, not that I think Ice Cube is a great actor or anything, but I think it could be really funny if he plays the police Captain in charge of sending a bunch of babyface cops into high school to bust pot dealers and the like.

Word has Cube (as his friends call him, or so I’m told) in negotiations to join stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in “21 Jump Street”, where he’ll play the Police Captain, a role first played by Steven Williams on the original TV show.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing for Sony, form a script by co-written by Hill.
