Johnny Depp, who started his career on the 1980s TV show "21 Jump Street," was happy to return to his "Jump Street" roots for a cameo in the Sony movie -- but only if his television castmate came along.
So not only does Depp have a cameo, but Peter DeLuise, who played Officer Doug Penhall on the Fox TV show, also appears.
But Depp (right, in his "21 Jump Street" days) wanted more than that.
If you haven't seen the movie yet stop reading now, because this is going to spoil the ending of "21 Jump Street."
Depp wanted his character, Officer Tom Hansen to -- you ready? -- die.
So don't expect Johnny Depp in any sequel.
But if it's a prequel ...
