Dave Franco Joins 21 Jump Street

Have you reached the James Franco saturation point for a little while? Good news: Dave Franco, the actor-writer best known for his work as James Franco's Equally Hot Brother, will play Eric, a villain-slash-drug dealer who's also "the most popular kid in school," obviously, in Phil Lord's and Chris Miller's upcoming 21 Jump Street remake. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will co-star as undercover cops who infiltrate Eric's high school. Johnny Depp is also in talks for a cameo. Anyway, "handsome drug-dealing douche bag" sounds like the perfect part for the burgeoning Franco. [Deadline via Collider]
