Channing TatumWe've now had over two years to digest the information that Jonah Hill is bringing the diverse eighties series '21 Jump Street' to the big screen -- the show about undercover cops who deal with youth crimes and excel in their abilities to make believable high school and college students. This new incarnation, written by Michael Bacall, will be an "R-rated, insane, Bad-Boys-meets-John Hughes-type movie," and it will be helmed by the wonders behind 'Clone High' and 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' -- Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

But that's only half of it. Now that the behind-the-scenes particulars have been figured out, it's time to cast this sucker, and for the lead, they want the man familiar with 'Dear John' letters, who can 'Step Up,' fight the 'Rise of the Cobra' and be a Pretty Boy Floyd. In other words, they want Channing Tatum.
