Radar Online reports that Brad Pitt is set to make a cameo in 22 Jump Street, which will see the actor make fun of himself. He will play himself working as a university librarian. The film stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.
Hill talked him into doing the cameo. The sequel has Jenko (Tatum) and Schmidt (Hill) working undercover on a college campus. To blend in, Jenko joins the football team and Schmidt becomes part of the art clique. They find Pitt on campus, playing himself as a low-paid librarian. He then does some bad acting which is noticed by the two cops.
A source said: "The scene is very funny and the guys had a great time doing it. Brad was a great sport and the producers were thrilled that he took part." The movie was filmed on the campus of Tulane University in New Orleans. Pitt spent his recent time relaxing with his family in Australia after shooting Fury in the UK.
22 Jump Street was directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. It also stars Ice Cube and Amber Stevens. It will be released on June 13, 2014. It is a sequel to the spin-off of the original 80s TV series that starred Johnny Depp. That film made over $200 million worldwide in 2012.

Captain America! Chris Evans as Captain America is on the cover of the February edition of Empire magazine, to promote Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The limited edition collector's version also features The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). The film will be released on April 4. It also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Georges St-Pierre, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp and Maximiliano Hernandez.
Here's a synopsis: Captain America: The Winter Soldier will pick-up where Marvel's The Avengers left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.
Is this on your MUST SEE list?
Wonder Woman! Lynda Carter, best known for her TV portrayal of Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV show, recently spoke with Metro about Gal Gadot being cast in the role for Batman vs. Superman. Check out the highlights:
On Wonder Woman's appeal: "There's an identification factor. She's not your average superhero. It's not so much about her super powers as it is about her ethic. I always thought of her as a figure who stands for what's right. We all know what's wrong with the world today, so maybe we need her right now."
On if it will be strange seeing someone else play her: "I don't think so. It was a long time ago. I care more about the character continuing than holding on to my piece of it. I hope she has fun with it."
On Wonder Woman being in Batman vs. Superman: "And maybe that's better. She won't have to carry the whole film. It takes the pressure off. I wish her well. I'm just glad she's going to be out there again. Maybe she'll get her own show again."
She'll always be Wonder Woman to me!
A new 20-minute Tomb Raider fan film has been released called Croft, based on the Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics property. It was directed by Trevor Addie and written by Addie and Irma Leong.

It seems that Fashion Police co-host Joan Rivers is still holding a grudge against Jennifer Lawrence, telling the New York Post, "My New Year's resolution is [ensuring] Jennifer Lawrence grows up and realizes how lucky she is and calms down."
Rivers is still touchy over Lawrence's comments back in November that shows like Fashion Police tell young people to judge others based on "all the wrong values and that it's OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat."
Rivers initially responded to her comments via Twitter, writing that the actress was "arrogant and a hypocrite -- apparently Lawrence loved Rivers' show when they were complimenting her during award season but began railing against it when she had a movie to promote."
Lawrence didn't respond to Rivers' tweets directly, but she did go on to tell Barbara Walters that she believes it should be "illegal to call somebody fat on TV." The American Hustle star has been candid about her refusal to lose weight for roles, her distaste for dieting, and willingness to admit when she's been photoshopped -- yet Rivers seems to think her campaign is nothing but an act.
"I love that she's telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about retouching and body image, and meanwhile, she has been touched up more than a choir boy at the Vatican," Rivers told the Post. "Look at her posters. She doesn't have a nose, she has two holes. She just has to learn, don't talk if you're doing it."
Thoughts on Joan?
