JONAH HILL (Leo) has quickly become one of
today's most sought-after
actors/writers and undeniable
comedic forces, thanks to his
starring role opposite Michael
Cera in the acclaimed hit
Superbad in 2007. Produced
by Judd Apatow, directed by
Greg Mottola and written by
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg,
the film grossed nearly
$120 million at the U.S. box office.
Last year, Hill lent his voice as Tommy in 20th
Century Fox's animated film Horton Hears a Who!,
based on the children's book written by Dr. Seuss and
directed by Jimmy Hayward (Finding Nemo, Monsters,
Inc.). He was joined by Jim Carrey and Steve Carell,
helping to launch the film as an international success
with earnings of more than $295 million worldwide.
He also had a memorable cameo role in the Apatow
comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall alongside Jason
Segel, Russell Brand and Kristen Bell. Produced by
Judd Apatow and directed by Nicholas Stoller, the film
went on to make more than $100 million worldwide.
Hill was last seen in an unbilled cameo role in the hit
film Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian,
opposite Ben Stiller.
Hill began his career performing one-scene plays
that he wrote and performed at the gritty Black &
White bar in New York City. After landing a role in
David O. Russell's I Heart Huckabees with Dustin
Hoffman and Jude Law, Hill was next seen in Judd
Apatow's 2005 summer hit comedy The 40-Year-Old
Virgin with Steve Carell.
The 25-year-old continues to confirm his place
among a new generation of comedic actors/writers.
Hill recently wrapped production on The Invention of
Lying, starring Ricky Gervais, Jennifer Garner and
Tina Fey, set to be released in September by Warner
Bros. He also has lent his voice as Snotlout in the
upcoming DreamWorks Animation film How to Train
Your Dragon, opposite of Gerard Butler (300) and
America Ferrera (Ugly Betty), set for release in March
2010. Hill also recently wrapped production on the
untitled Duplass brothers film, also starring Marisa
Tomei and John C. Reilly.

Adventurer's Handbook, which Hill is set to star in,
write and executive produce. Also attached to the
project are Jason Schwartzman and Jason Segel.
