why did johnny want to leave 21 jump street so…

why did johnny want to leave 21 jump street so badly? all i know is that he disliked the bad boy hot guy image that the press gave him I supposed based on the show? or what exactly was the issue

Yep that was definitely part of it! I’d say that was most of the reason. He didn’t want to be a product for someone else to push that wasn’t on his own terms. Especially for a show/character he didn’t care about and didn’t believe in, tbh. Also I think just being on a TV show in general he hated, because he felt like he was stuck in a creative box. I believe when asked if he’d ever do another TV show he said, and I quote, ‘I’d rather dig my way to the centre of the Earth with my tongue.’

And he hasn’t done a TV show since LOL
