We have watched in awe as Jonah Hill has transformed from the geeky and awkward sidekick, mainly in Judd Apatow's comedies, to a fully blown acclaimed actor who can have his pick of film roles.
Of course, as dedicated Jonah Hill fans, we follow all his social media pages. Loving the recent Jiu Jitzu training pics on Insta btw. And how shocked were we when we noticed that Jonah had liked someone's Twitter post?! For the first time ever since he joined in 2011.
Read on to see what piqued Jonah's interest enough to press the never been pressed before Like button.
When he first hit our screens as a fresh faced youngster.
via: GettyHis chubby cheeks, nerdy awkwardness, hilarious laugh and crazy hair had us hooked from day one.
The original dudes.
via: GettyAs his career took off he became famous for starring alongside other comedy geniuses such as Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd and Jason Segel.
And of course, he owes his early success partly down to Judd Apatow.
Drawing dicks in Superbad.In 2007 Jonah starred in Superbad alongside Michael Cera. This hilarious coming of age film was said to be the launch pad for both these young actors' careers. And damn were they right.
In The 40 Year Old Virgin confused by Ebay.Although, Jonah did in fact star in another Judd Apatow film before Superbad, if only briefly, and that was in The 40 Year Old Virgin. Even for this brief moment, Jonah still stole the scene.
Then came his large supporting role in Knocked Up with the hilarious Seth Rogen.This romantic comedy grossed $219 million worldwide and was loved by critics and film enthusiasts alike. "Just do it already."
He was then seen worshipping Russell Brand in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.Cast as the slightly stalkerish waiter in this feel good comedy, Jonah managed to capture the essence of an obsessed fan perfectly and added lots of extra laughs in his scenes with Russell.
"Shouldn't have had the Jeffrey".In Get Him To The Greek, a spin-off film from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Jonah played Aaron Green, an ambitious executive who's tasked with escorting rock legend Aldous Snow to the Greek Theatre for his comeback tour. If you haven't seen it, let's just say the trip doesn't go smoothly.
Branching out into children's films.Jonah was cast in three animated films; How to Train Your Dragon, Horton Hears A Who! and Megamind. With his hilarious voice and energy, he suited these roles perfectly.
Moving into a more dramatic role in Cyrus.Jonah actually turned down a role in The Hangover so he could work on this independent film in 2010. And he was right to do so as this is the film that set the wheels in motion for a huge rebrand and a conversion into the highly versatile actor he has become today.
He received his first Oscar nomination for Moneyball in 2011.Starring alongside Brad Pitt, Jonah was praised for his portrayal of Peter Brand, maths genius in this sports drama. At the time he spoke of how much he learnt for starring alongside Brad.
His first producing credits with 21 Jump Street.Starring alongside Channing Tatum, Jonah both acted in and produced this action/comedy. Did it give him a taste for being involved in making films as well as starring in them? We think so.
Of course, we also had to mention 22 Jump Street.The sequel to 21 Jump Street, this film was received in much the same way as its predecessor. Basically the fans couldn't get enough of it. And could we blame them with the hysterical Jonah and the gorgeous Channing. It was a match made in heaven.
You show me a cheque for $72,000, I quit my job, I come work for you.After Moneyball, Jonah's next major film role was in The Wolf of Wall Street alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. Jonah wanted to be in this film so badly that he tracked down Leo, pleaded his case and even offered to take a pay cut. Boy are we glad he said yes.
Joining the Netflix revolution.Back alongside Emma Stone again, the Netflix original Maniac, received mixed reviews but personally we loved it. A dark psychological comedy, this role gave Jonah the chance to use his comedic talents but also to portray a more complex character who was suffering from schizophrenia.
His directing debut.
And so Mid 90s was made.This sort of autobiographical coming of age drama is set in the 1990s in L.A and follows 13 year old Stevie who loves to skateboard and hip-hop. As we expected, this debut drama is brilliant and has been widely acclaimed by critics. Go Jonah!
He has recently tweeted his gratitude to his fans who have seen Mid 90s.Always gracious and thankful to fans and those who have supported him, Jonah did not disappoint with this heartfelt tweet.
Talking of Twitter, Jonah has finally liked a tweet!Although Jonah has been on Twitter since February 2011 and has 4.79 million followers, he has never liked another tweet. Until now.
And this is what it said.
Emma Stone is such a robust, emotionally generous actor and the men she's so often cast opposite... aren't— Kyle Buchanan (@Kyle Buchanan)1537540340.0
But why did Jonah like this tweet?
@kylebuchanan What does it mean that @JonahHill (a man that she has been cast opposite to) likes this. JONAH, WHAT… https://t.co/al9Bi2KTH6— Sporty Spice Latte (@Sporty Spice Latte)1537667616.0
Some are quick to come to his defence.
@kylebuchanan Jonah Hill gave her a run for her money in Superbad— Johnny Galt (@Johnny Galt)1537702337.0
And more quickly followed.We think that Jonah more than kept up with Emma in this series as their respective characters Owen Milgrim and Annie Landsberg. Not to mention the gorgeous Justin Theroux.
Maybe we are reading too much into it?
@meghamuffin519 @kylebuchanan @JonahHill It probably means that @JonahHill agrees with what @kylebuchanan has said… https://t.co/PTAnQfObkB— Freeglerock (@Freeglerock)1537695013.0
