Not too long ago we interviewed my friend, Turner Crumbley, about his role in Mark Wahlberg’s most recent film Contraband. It was very interesting for us at Reel Thinking and it seems that it was interesting to you as well, because we had some very large hits on those days. Since we didn’t just want to do a follow-up interview with Turner on the same film, he went out and got another role – just for us.

So I’m obviously kidding about that, but I’m not kidding about the fact that he does play a part in 21 Jump Street. The film stars funny-man Channing Tatum and heartthrob Jonah Hill and it opens this Friday. It tells the story of two slacker cops who are sent, undercover, to high school with the hopes of bringing down a drug dealer. Although the synopsis seems like an action/drama, it is a buddy comedy that promises laughs. For those of you who are a bit older, you will know that 21 Jump Street was a television show starring Johnny Depp, who is said to have a cameo in the film.

So tomorrow we will have our interview with Turner discussing the film, but highlighting questions about Christians starring in movies. 21 Jump Street has some questionable content, just like Contraband did, therefore, we hope these interviews raise some interesting thoughts for you to reflect on. We hope these posts are not only interesting to our readers, but help in cultivating discernment.

Be sure and check back tomorrow (we hope, Turner is pretty busy so it may be a bit late) to do more reflection on Christians and film.
