White Men Can’t Jump reboot trailer features rapper Jack Harlow in his acting debut


Rapper Jack Harlow makes his feature film acting debut in Hulu’s upcoming reboot of White Men Can’t Jump, with the first trailer arriving Sunday (via 20th Century Studios YouTube). 

The 24-year-old rapper plays the role originated by Woody Harrelson in the original 1992 film, with Sinqua Walls playing the role originated by Wesley Snipes.

The film follows Jeremy (Harlow) and Kamal (Walls) as a pair of basketball hustlers who team up to earn some extra cash.

The trailer begins with Jeremy approaching Kamal, asking, ‘I probably should have asked this earlier, but how much cash do you have on you?’

Kamal looks at him incredulously and asks, ‘Did you not bring enough money to cover this game?’

‘I brought like 80… minus 60,’ Jeremy admits, much to the chagrin of Kamal, with another scene showing them coming off the train together.

Jeremy asks Kamal, ‘Are you ready?’ as they walk down the stairs to the basketball court as Kamal answers, ‘Born ready.’

Another scene shows Jeremy praying on the court, with Kamal telling their opponents that he’s, ‘almost done.’ 

Another shot shows Jeremy crossing up one of his opponents, before telling Kamal he’s, ‘like the P.T. Anderson of basketball psychological warfare.’

‘Who is P.T. Anderson?’ Kamal asks, as Jeremy responds, ‘Our greatest living director,’ but Kamal argues, ‘Spike Lee is our greatest living director.’

‘Spike Lee is not even a good Knicks fan,’ Jeremy adds, as Kamal shakes his head and says, ‘I knew this was a mistake,’ as the trailer comes to an end.

The end of the trailer also reveals the R-rated film will debut May 19 only on the Hulu streaming service

The film is directed by Charles Kidd II a.k.a. Calmatic from a script by Black-Ish creator Kenya Barris and Doug Hall, who has written for Black-Ish and Grown-Ish.
