In the last year alone, 127 Hours star James Franco hosted the Oscars and was even nominated for one himself. Now, Dave Franco is following in his older brother’s footsteps as new reports reveal that the 25-year-old has landed a role in the upcoming big screen adaption of 21 Jumpstreet.
Huffington Post reports that Dave has been cast in the movie as Eric, the popular boy in high school who gets into a bit of trouble selling drugs.
Johnny Depp actually starred in the original 21 Jumpstreet television series in the late 80s, from which the movie will be based on, playing an undercover police officer.
Channing Tatum and Superbad’s Jonah Hill are also slated to star in the upcoming film.
