Ellie Kemper Will School 21 Jump Street

Ellie Kemper Will School 21 Jump Street

Anyone who enjoys the US version of The Office knows that Ellie Kemper has proved to be a great addition to the cast. And she also provided some solid laughs alongside Kristen Wiig and co in Bridesmaids. Now she’s scored another decent role, signing on to the cast of 21 Jump Street.

Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing the film right now in New Orleans, with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum playing police officers assigned to work undercover in a local high school to break up a drugs ring.

Kemper will play Ms Griggs, a sweet, if sometimes annoyingly sincere chemistry teacher who finds herself attracted to Tatum’s character and is apparently unable to figure out why he seems older than her other students. And it’s a slight comedy reunion for her and Hill, since she had a memorable moment in Get Him to the Greek.

The rest of the cast includes Ice Cube, Brie Larson, Rob Riggle, Dave Franco, Johnny Simmons, Dakota Johnson, DeRay Davis and Jake M Johnson. Oh, and some bloke called Johnny Depp, who kick-started his career appearing in the TV show that the movie’s based on, will also apparently cameo.

21 Jump Street walks the cinema beat on April 20 next year.
