With great word of mouth for Moneyball and his animated Fox series Allen Gregory premiering October 30th, Jonah Hill’s star continues to rise. Although he first gained notice for his work in 2007’s Superbad, Hill proved he could carry a film (and play the straight man) last year with the comedy Get Him to the Greek.
With an A-list co-star (Brad Pitt), an Oscar winning screenwriters (Aaron Sorkin and Steve Zaillian), and an acclaimed director (Capote’s Bennett Miller) behind Moneyball, Hill was understandably a bit nervous.
“I’ll be honest, the first week or two of rehearsals when it was just Brad and myself, or Brad, myself, and (co-star) Philip Seymour Hoffman – (those) were some of the most intimidating few days of my life,” says Hill. “I was just so happy to be there and really wanted to learn from these people and hopefully I would do them proud and not embarrass myself.”
