Jonah Hill plays an arms dealer selling weapons in Afghanistan alongside Miles Teller in the new Todd Phillips film War Dogs. While appearing on HBO’s Any Given Wednesday With Bill Simmons to promote War Dogs, Hill revealed that his role in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street — as debauched financial crook Donnie Azoff — required him to snort so much fake cocaine that he actually wound up needing medical attention.
Seth Rogen was in the middle of explaining how Nick Kroll’s villainous character, Douche (you read that right), in the new R-rated animated film Sausage Party evolved from a Jafar-in-Aladdin rip-off to the bro he ultimately became, when the raunch auteur dropped an amazing nugget of pop-culture trivia. “DTF,” the acronym short for “down to you-know-what” made famous by the once-ubiquitous reality stars of MTV’s Jersey Shore, actually originated in Rogen’s 2007 comedy Superbad. “It allowed us to re-appropriate ‘DTF,’ because that is actually from Superbad,” Rogen told Yahoo Movies during a recent in-studio visit (watch above), which seemed to even surprise his Superbad and Sausage Party costar Michael Cera.
Jonah Hill has got himself in trim once again, by the looks of it. The ‘Superbad’ star was papped while out and about in Los Angeles looking pretty much half the size he was last year. While filming the movie 'War Dogs’, Hill had piled on the pounds to play arms dealer Efraim Diveroli opposite Miles Teller.
Recently, we showcased the actors who piled on pounds for film roles, but now it’s time to go the other way and look at the actors who dramatically slimmed down. Undoubtedly the harder discipline of the two, some actors took the challenge to crazy extremes as this gallery explains.
Jonah Hill, perhaps in a bid to reduce his workload, is now handing out business cards instead of autographs. This particular card was handed to Nasser Ghaffar, of Brooklyn, New York, who, according to Storyful, met Hill on the street in Manhattan. “And I heard this laugh that sounded so familiar I turn to my right and there was Jonah Hill just standing there.
