JONAH HILL (Franklin) made his theatrical debut alongside Jason Schwartzman and Dustin Hoffman in "I Heart Huckabees,” setting into motion the inevitable life-changing encounter with wunderkind, Judd Apatow and his band of comical raconteurs.

Apatow unleashed Hill's comedic prowess, casting him, in a small role in Steve Carell's critically acclaimed megahit, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” followed by another raucously funny performance in Apatow's, "Knocked Up,” starring Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen. Hill reteamed with Apatow for his first lead role in the critically lauded blockbuster "Superbad,” opposite Michael Cera; the film became the highest grossing high school-themed movie of all time.

The magical combination of Apatow and Hill would reappear in several outrageously jaw-dropping forms including "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story” with John C. Reilly; "Forgetting Sarah Marshall” starring Jason Segel, Russell Brand and Mila Kunis; "Funny People” starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen; and Russell Brand's satirical rock and roll adventure, "Get Him to the Greek.”

Segueing into drama, Hill proved a versatile actor, presenting a compelling portrayal as Peter Brand, in the Oscar-nominated biographical baseball adaptation, "Moneyball,” directed by Bennett Miller. Hill delivered a nuanced dramatic turn opposite Brad Pitt that not only garnered critical recognition, but also earned him Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe, BAFTA and Academy Award® nominations.

Hill gave voice to numerous animated characters, including Tommy in "Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears A Who!” alongside Jim Carrey and Steve Carell, followed by Snotlout in the Academy Award nominated "How to Train Your Dragon” with Gerard Butler and Kristin Wiig, and most recently, as Hal Stewart/Titan in "Megamind,” also starring Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt and Tina Fey. Hill reprises his turn as Snotlout in "How to Train Your Dragon 2.”

Hill co-created and starred in the animated television comedy "Allen Gregory” for FOX. He appeared in episodes of "NYPD Blue,” "Reno: 911!” and "The Simpsons,” among other shows.

Recently, Hill again, flexed his other creative muscles as executive producer and writer of the "21 Jump Street,” based on the eighties television series; the film also starred Channing Tatum and Ice Cube. "21 Jump Street” is Hill's highest grossing film since "Superbad.”

Hills upcoming projects include "Good Time Gang,” opposite Mark Wahlberg, "The Apocalypse,” with Seth Rogen and James Franco, "True Story,” reteaming with James Franco, and "Zoolander 2” alongside Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson.
