5 Breakout Actors Who Totally Stole 22 Jump Street
Audiences showed up in droves for 21 Jump Street two years ago, loving not only the adventures of Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Ice Cube, but also grooving with the supporting cast. The production was smart enough to recruit soon-to-be stars like Brie Larson, ringers like Rob Riggle, utility men like Dave Franco, and goofballs like DeRay Davis, Chris Parnell and Ellie Kemper. Switching the venue for the sequel meant a whole new supporting cast, a whole new bunch of scene stealers.
In 22 Jump Street, Hill and Tatum can't carry the load themselves. Fortunately, the cast is filled with several merry-makers ready to lift a scene away. Here's a look at five rising talents who completely stole some of the choice moments from 22 Jump Street.
Wyatt RussellThat genial smile. The glorious hair. That lantern jaw. One look at Wyatt Russell and you think, wow, that guy looks super familiar! Of course, it's a generational thing: you're looking at the son of Kurt Russell! And as Jook, 22 Jump Street's star jock, Russell gives off those same good-time Americana vibes as old dad, to the point where this breakout should lead to the sort of roles that Dad made his name from. Russell will next be seen in the hockey drama Turk, though his role in Midnight Rider likely won't be revisited as that film's in a world of trouble.
