Ice Cube In Negotiations To Play Police Captain In "21 Jump Street"

From "Fuck The Police" to playing one in the movies, Cube may have a big appearance in the film rendition to the popular 1980s FOX series.

Emcee-turned-actor Ice Cube is reportedly in talks for a starring role in the upcoming film adaptation of popular 1980s FOX series, 21 Jump Street. The N.W.A. alum would join Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum if the parties can come to agreement, according to entertainment website Deadline.com.

Reports indicate that Cube, who launched his film career 20 years ago in John Singleton's Boyz N' The Hood, would be playing the precinct captain in the Sony Pictures film, a police role for the emcee who famously rapped "Fuck The Police" in N.W.A.'s 1988 hit.

In addition, Cube is said to be looking to produce a film on car culture in Los Angeles, Chrome and Paint. In films such as Boyz, as well as videos like "It Was A Good Day" and Westside Connection's "Let It Rain," Cube has appeared in lowrider cars, a popular west coast counter-culture dating back to the 1950s.

DEPP IS THE ONLY ONE CURRENT FROM THE SHOW AND ONE OF HOLLYWOOD'S TOP, IF NOT THEE BEST ACTOR THAT CAN PLAY ANY ROLE! DAMN IT, DARK KNIGHT RISING WOULD BE SO MUCH CRAZIER AND INSANE ON HEALTH LEDGER'S JOKER LEVEL IF DEPP PLAYS THE RIDDLER? BUT WORD IS THAT NOLAN PULLED IT????? WHAT'S WITH THE SWITCH UP, NOLAN?

    For a guy who can't act, he gets alot of opportunities. Good for him. Make the money while you can.

      cosign... Cube will always be one of my faves, even after Are We There Yet... I can't even blame him for get Hollywood money. Rap fans are fickle. He still puts out music because he wants to, and even tho I didnt feel his last album as much as Laugh Now Cry Later u gotta love it. It's not like he was a Correctional Officer or anything, who would accept that in rap? just joint Twitta @LumpyLePew
