20 Oct – With the huge success of the cop comedy "21 Jump Street" starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, the sequel "22 Jump Street" will be reuniting the actors and adding a new actor among the cast. British indie movie actor Craig Roberts from Richard Ayoade's debut "Submarine" will be joining the cast of the Hollywood comedy.
"22 Jump Street" reunites Channing Tatum's Jenko and Jonah Hill's Schmidt as the undercover cops move on to their next mission, which is to crack a crime ring within a college fraternity. The new gig will test the limits of the central pair's friendship once again as Jenko finds new bonds with the frat brothers (including Wyatt Russell) and Schmidt feels threatened. Roberts is set to play a character named Spencer.
Roberts, Tatum and Hill will be joining a cast that will also include Ice Cube back as Captain Dickson, Jimmy Tatro, Kurt Krause and Joe Chrest. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are once more directing, working this time from a script by Oren Uziel, Rodney Rothman and Michael Bacall.
Craig Roberts appeared in films like "Red Lights" and "Jane Eyre" besides "Submarine". He also reunited with director Richard Ayoade for "The Double" with Jesse Eisenberg and has recently worked on "Neighbours" opposite Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne.
"22 Jump Street" is expected to be screened mid-next year.
