About Jonah Hill
Born Jonah Hill Feldstein to parents Sharon and Richard Feldstein in Los Angeles, Hill grew up in the movie city. His father was a tour coordinator for the popular music group Guns ‘n Roses, so Hill was familiar with fame long before his acting career took off. While Hill was in college, he wrote his plays. He performed his self-written plays in local bars, where he developed a small fan group. Performing his plays gave him a desire to perform in films.
During this stage of Hill’s life, he became friends with Jake and Rebecca Hoffman, the children of famous actor Dustin Hoffman. When Hill met the elder Hoffman, he was encouraged to audition for the film I Heart Huckabees. Hill was granted the part and made his film debut.
In 2005, Hill briefly appeared in the hit sex comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin, which was the director debut film for director Judd Apatow. During this film, Hill and the new director developed a friendship, which has led Hill to star in many other films directed by Apatow.
Two years after the production of The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Hill again played a role in a film directed by Apatow. His appearance in the 2007 comedy Knocked Up, though not a starring role, was much more significant the role he had played in The 40-Year-Old Virgin. After this appearance, the Apatow-Hill friendship continued, which led to Hill co-starring in Get Him to the Greek and Moneyball, which were both produced by Apatow.
Hill’s next major movie was released in 2012. 21 Jump Street, which featured Channing Tatum and Hill as co-stars, was incredibly successful and merited a sequel, 22 Jump Street, in which the duo also starred. Both were box office successes. Also in 2012, Hill starred in The Watch and Django: Unchained, which was directed by Quentin Tarantino. Hill stated that appearing in a Quentin Tarantino film was a perfect step in his career.
In 2013, Hill had appearances in the films The Wolf of Wall Street, which earned him the aforementioned Academy Award nomination, and This Is the End. Hill said in an interview that he was paid the minimum pay for his work in The Wolf of Wall Street, but that being in the film was an honor, so he did not mind.
Since he was young, Hill has not only wanted to be an actor, but also a writer. He has written two comedies, although neither of them have become series. He did co-produce the film Bruno, which he helped to write.
