THE WOLF OF WALL STREET
JONAH HILL (Donnie Azoff) has quickly become one of

Supporting Role in 2011, Hill was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for "Best
Performance by an Actor In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture" and a SAG

producer. "22 Jump Street" will be released by Sony Pictures on June 13th, 2014.
Hill wrapped production on Rupert Goold's "True Story" opposite James Franco.

Baruchel and Akiva Schaffer's "The Watch" opposite Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn.
Hill's breakout role starring opposite Michael Cera in the acclaimed hit, "Superbad,"

become a mainstay in the Judd Apatow clan, starring in the Apatow-produced
summer comedies "Get Him to the Greek" in 2010, "Funny People" in 2009, and
"Forgetting Sarah Marshall" in 2008. His first appearance under Apatow

starring role as the title character in the independent feature "Cyrus,"
directed and written by Jay and Mark Duplass. The film premiered at the 2010
Sundance Film Festival to glowing reviews and was nominated for a Broadcast Film
Critics Association Award for "Best Comedy Movie."
