FUNNY PEOPLE

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.

Upcoming projects for Hill include The 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. Currently, Hill is filming Get Him to the Greek, the upcoming spin-off of the comedy hit Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Hill will star opposite Russell Brand, who is reprising his role as Aldous Snow for the film. Other film credits for Hill include Knocked Up, Click, Evan Almighty and Accepted.

Hill currently resides in Los Angeles.
