Hill's breakout role starring opposite Michael Cera in the acclaimed hit Superbad established him as a staple of the comedy canon.

It was recently announced that Jonah will team up once again with his Wolf of Wall Street co-star Leonardo DiCaprio to produce and star in The Ballad of Richard Jewell. Hill will play Jewell, the American security guard who heroically saved thousands of lives from an exploding bomb at the 1996 Olympics, only to be vilified by journalists and the press who falsely report that he was a terrorist. He is also working on co-writing The Adventurer's Handbook, for which he will co-star with Jason Segel. He is writing Pure Imagination, an Apatow-produced comedy which he will executive produce. Hill was as an associate producer of the Sacha Baron Cohen comedy Bruno and an executive producer of The Sitter.
