Remember Johnny Depp? Hard to forget him, especially if you caught him when he first broke out on Fox’s 21 Jump Street. Remember Richard Grieco? He was on 21 Jump Street too. And his character was so apparently popular that the network gave him a spin-off, Booker. Hard to believe now, especially since Grieco has essentially disappeared from the public eye. On Booker, his title character was hired away from the police force to work for a Japanese corporation (wha?). But he’s still his own man, don’t you see, because he shirks corporate attire, rockin’ his leather jackets and torn jeans all while working as the in-house detective for a Japanese corporation. To go from scourge of the mean streets to glorified rent-a-cop is a steep fall indeed. After giving Booker a prime 7-8 p.m. spot on Sundays, the show was later moved to the less prominent 10 p.m. slot. Then it was canceled.
