THE INVENTION OF LYING
JONAH HILL (Frank) has quickly become one of Hollywood's most sought after comedic talents, due in part to his starring role opposite Michael Cera in the acclaimed hit "Superbad," produced by Judd Apatow, directed by Greg Mottola and written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Hill was most recently seen in Apatow's "Funny People," with Adam Sandler and Rogen, and he made a cameo appearance in the hit Summer 2009 film "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian," opposite Ben Stiller. He will soon be seen in several upcoming features, including a comedy from writing/directing team Jay and Mark Duplass and Nicholas Stoller's "Get Him to the Greek," opposite Russell Brand and produced by Apatow, due for release in June 2010.
Hill will also be lending his voice to two upcoming 3-D animated features, next spring's Viking adventure "How to Train Your Dragon," with Gerard Butler, and next fall in "Oobermind," starring the voices of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt and Tina Fey. Hill previously lent his voice to the animated film "Horton Hears a Who!" based on the Dr. Seuss children's book and also starring the voices of Jim Carrey and Steve Carell.
The busy Hill is currently co-writing and will co-star with Jason Segel in "The Adventurer's Handbook"; co-writing the big screen adaptation of the hit TV series "21 Jump Street"; co-writing the Apatow-produced comedy "The Middle Child," in which he will also star; and writing, producing with Apatow, and starring in the romantic comedy "Pure Imagination." Hill recently served as associate producer on the Sacha Baron Cohen comedy "Bruno."
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, he was next seen with Carell in Apatow's smash hit comedy "The 40-Year-Old Virgin." His other film credits include Apatow's "Knocked Up," "Click," "Evan Almighty" and "Accepted."
