21 Jump Street: Beta Edition

Everyone knows that the character of Tom Hanson on the 1980's Fox drama 21 Jump Street was played by the legendary superstar- Jeff Yagher?!?

Yes, before Johnny Depp stepped into Tom's shoes, Tom was played by Jeff Yagher. Mr. Yagher's performance did not impress Fox executives, which had to be a huge insult considering that Fox aired shows like The Adventures of Beans Baxter, Mr. President and Duets. Jeff Yagher was replaced by future superstar Johnny Depp and the show became one of Fox's first huge hits. At least Mr. Yagher could say he was replaced by a future billion dollar box office draw.
