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, who starred with Pitt in the 2011 film Moneyball, 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.
