Simmons cast in trio of roles

He'll appear in 'Jump Street,' 'Perks,' 'Job'

Johnny Simmons has signed on for roles in Sony’s “21 Jump Street,” Summit’s “Perks of Being a Wallflower” and indie “The Hand Job.”

He’ll shoot “Jump Street” first, then move on to “Perks of Being a Wallflower,” followed by “The Hand Job” later this year.

“Jump Street,” based on the Fox TV show, stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as undercover cops working in high schools and colleges. Paul Lord and Chris Miller are helming, with Neil Moritz producing. The late Stephen J. Cannell, who co-created the original TV show and was working on the reboot before his death in September, is credited as a producer.

“Perks of Being a Wallflower” stars Emma Watson and Logan Lerman, with Steve Chbosky directing. Maggie Carey is directing “The Hand Job,” which stars Bill Hader, Andy Samberg and Aubrey Plaza.

Simmons can now be seen in Robert Redford’s “The Conspirator” and in HBO’s “Cinema Verite.” Other credits include “Jennifer’s Body” for Fox 2000 and Universal’s “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.”

He is repped by WME.
