’22 Jump Street’ Adds Wyatt Russell

Variety Studio At Chivas House - Day 4 - The 66th Annual Cannes Film FestivalAccording to The Hollywood Reporter, Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s 21 Jump Street sequel — the aptly titled 22 Jump Street — has found its newest cast member in Wyatt Russell, who will play a frat brother that bonds with star Channing Tatum’s character and is the lead suspect in the film’s case.

Although Russell’s name may not be immediately familiar to fans, he certainly comes from an acting family: His parents are Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. Russell’s acting resume is so far slim, with roles in This is 40, Cowboys & Aliens and Love and Honor, plus a brief appearance in the resurgence of Arrested Development. His transition into acting comes following his departure from minor league hockey in 2012.

22 Jump Street features the return of Tatum and Jonah Hill with new cast member Ice Cube. The film is set for a June 13, 2014 release.
