And the Academy Award goes to… Jonah Hill? Again?

imagesJonah Hill received another Academy Award nomination this week for his supporting role in The Wolf of Wall Street.  I guess this isn’t as much of a surprise as it was last time. I havent seen The Wolf of Wall Street yet but from all reports I’ve heard Jonah was great in it. To commemorate his latest nomination, I thought I would share a couple more of Jonah’s past roles that I felt deserve some recognition as well.

Jonah Hill from This is the End

Jonah had a lot of great scenes in the movie This is the End, but my favorite is “The Exorcism of Jonah Hill.” Throughout most of the movie Jonah portrays himself as an easy-going sensitive guy even though he is secretly jealous of Jay Baruchel and his relationship with Seth Rogen. His jealousy leads to an unfortunate sexual encounter with a horned and horny demon. After the forced sodomization, Jonah becomes possessed and his true colors come out.

Bag Head #2 from Django Unchained

This whole scene is just genius. Thank you Mr. Tarantino. A lynch mob, lead by another scene stealer Don Johnson, is getting ready to storm over a hill to murder the lead character  Django. As the mob is about to leave, they get into an argument over the bags they are supposed to wear over their heads. Hurtful words are exchanged and feelings get hurt. My favorite part is at the 2:10 mark of this clip where one of the mob tries to smooth things over. Some coarse language here folks so be advised.

Congratulations again to Jonah for being nominated for such a high profile acting award. I just hope he doesn’t go the route of other some other comedic actors and do only dramatic roles from now on. Robin Williams won his Oscar and all we saw from him afterwards was crap like Patch Adams and Jakob the Liar.

Stay true to your comedic roots Jonah and we the fans will always ask you about your wiener.

And the Academy Award goes to… Jonah Hill?

Jonah Hill received a surprise Academy Award nomination this week for his supporting role in Moneyball.   Not bad for his first attempt at a dramatic role. I really liked Moneyball and thought Jonah was great in it, but he’s had way better roles in the past that I feel deserve recognition.

Schrader from Accepted

Jonah had a lot of great lines in the movie Accepted, but my favorite is “I hope you guys have Hobo Stab Insurance.”(Go to the 45 second mark on the Accepted movie trailer) The use of the word hobo kills me. Before the movie no one had regularly used the word hobo since the 1940’s and even then it was usually in reference to the obligatory hobo Halloween costume. Since the movie I use the term almost daily. “I would kill a hobo for a piece of pizza” is thrown around a lot in my house. The idea of  “stab insurance” is funny in itself.  I might get stabbed but I’m covered, I have insurance. I wonder if you get that through Aflac or Geico? I hear Geico has the better Hobo Stab Insurance premiums.

Confused We Sell Your Crap On Ebay Store Shopper

In The 40 Year Old Virgin, Jonah shows up in the We Sell Your Crap On Ebay Store. He can’t seem to grasp the idea of a store where you can go inside, browse through merchandise, but can’t actually purchase anything unless you go home and bid on it. Now that I think about it, I’m a bit confused too. I also love the item he wants to buy.  Go-Go boots with gold fish in the heel. Not just for fun but to actually take home and wear.

Seth from Superbad

My favorite comedy of all time. Jonah was great throughout as the wisecracking high school kid Seth. Whether he is forecasting his future porn tastes or making fun of nerdy friend McLovin, his scenes are comedic home runs. My favorite scene by far is The Dick Treasure Chest. Seth admits a deep dark secret to his best friend. Apparently, he used to sit around all day and compulsively draw pictures of dicks. That’s right, Man Dick. It’s OK though, something like 8% of kids does it. So, nothing to worry about.

Congratulations to  Jonah for being nominated for such a high profile acting award. I just hope he doesn’t go the route of other some other comedic actors and do only dramatic roles from now on. Robin Williams won his Oscar and all we saw from him afterwards was crap like Patch Adams and Jakob the Liar.

Stay true to your comedic roots Jonah and we the fans will always ask you about your weiner.
