Ellie Kemper Cast In 21 Jump Street

By

Variety reports that The Office’s Ellie Kemper joined 21 Jump Street, where she’ll be playing a ruthless serial killer who collects fingernail clippings and locks of hair in an attempt to build her own animate homunculus. No, I kid. Kemper will be playing “an annoyingly sincere chemistry teacher” who is shocked to find that Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are undercover cops working at her high school, but probably relieved that her intense attraction to Tatum is not the result of some kind of deep-seated sexual dysfunction.
