Good for him

He gotta keep making the right creative decisions for himself. He's on the right path..

In a few years, he could be in the same boat as a Robin Williams; where you can alternate back and forth between goofball comedies, and dramatic Academy Award nominated films..

what an IDIOT!!!!!!!

He has CLEARLY been in comedy movies since Hangover 1 came out...... not to mention Transformers WASNT a comedy more like a straight up CASH COW.....

And lets talk about the fact that Shia Lebeouf "transitioned"into much better and higher grossing "dramatic" movies than Jonah has In that same time. I Cant believe u guys r praising this guy for such epic failure
So Shia had a higher grossing drama than the Oscar-nominated Moneyball, for which Jonah Hill also was nominated for an Oscar?



Jonah always seemed like a cool, funny dude so I'm curious to read this interview that made him seem "standoffish."

Considering both movie franchises have been run into the ground, wise choice for him...besides he was likely filming "Get Him To The Greek" in 09 which is a far better movie than all those films he wasn't in from turning them down.

At this point, you don't like anyone. If there was a thread created giving you props, you wouldn't like you either.

Nothing wrong with that. After all, if he continues that path of being the "chubby funny guy" eventually people will see you as that and become a 1 dimensional and it'll be a bi*ch later on trying to get those serious acting roles because that's all people will see.

The Hangover was casted perfectly and although his comic timing is damn near perfect, I seriously doubt he would've been able to save Transformers 2. That was a terrible flick!

I think he is smart. A lot of celebs fade out because they get some pumped up on one thing that eventually it is the cause of their downfall.

If I was an actor I'd try to star in as many different movie genres as possible. If one thing fails, at least you have something else to rely on.

Jonah Hill was on a quest to veer off the comedy course when he apparently turned down roles in two major blockbusters.

After his star turn in the breakout 2007 hit "Superbad," he was offered "any one of the three main parts in ','" he tells Bullet magazine. In other words, Hill could've played Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), or Alan (Zach Galifianakis) in the second highest-grossing R-rated comedy ever.

But that's not all: He also declined the opportunity to star as Shia LaBeouf's sidekick in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," the second most successful film of 2009, right behind "Avatar."

"They were both really big decisions, and ones that most people didn't understand," he admits. "I knew I could be a dramatic actor, but I also knew I couldn't go from 'Superbad' to 'Schindler's List.'"

His ballsy tactics have paid off, leading to his Oscar-nominated supporting part opposite Brad Pitt in 2011's "Moneyball" and a prime role in the upcoming Martin Scorsese drama "The Wolf of Wall Street," starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a money-hungry stockbroker.

On his competition for his "Wolf of Wall Street" part, Hill says, "I knew that I was being considered among a list of other actors, but not my contemporaries -- Andrew Garfield or Joseph Gordon-Levitt -- people who are usually up for the same stuff as me. I was hearing names like George Clooney."

In a recent Rolling Stone interview, for which the "This Is the End" star received some flak for seeming standoffish, Hill said, "I've done one of the biggest challenges you can do in Hollywood, which is transition from being a comedic actor to being a serious actor, and I'm really prideful of that. I could have made a billion dollars doing every big comedy of the last 10 years and didn't, in order to form a whole other life for myself. Now I have fulfillment doing both."


Damn jonah They sucking dis n*ggas d!ck in Hollywood. Wonder if he woulda got all those roles if he was black.
