Jonah Hill adventures

When you hear the term "global adventure", you may not necessarily think of stout funnyguy Jonah Hill.

That's probably why this is a comedy: Hill is starring in Universal's THE ADVENTURER'S HANDBOOK. He'll be reuniting with fellow David O. Russell survivor Jason Schwartzman (I HEART HUCKABEES), as chums who start a world-spanning journey inspired by the chronicles of history's explorers in Mick Conefrey's book of the title.

Director and Lonely Island member Akiva Shaffer (HOT ROD) will get the globetrotting on camera, with a script co-written by Hill.

Hill and Schwartzman also just worked together in Judd Apatow's FUNNY PEOPLE.

HURRAH!

I'm excited for this! I enjoy both Hill and Schwartzman and I'm REALLY glad Kiv is getting another shot at directing. I loved Hot Rod for all its inane ridiculous comedy and think it's severely underrated. I mean, it's dumb as shit, but REALLY funny. For me, it's right up there with Wet Hot American Summer as one of my favorite absurdist comedies. I don't think the trailer really sold it too well.

Anyway, REALLY looking forward to this.

Has anyone heard The Lonely Island's album

Has anyone heard The Lonely Island's album yet?! If not, go check it out. I'm a big fan of Santana DVX, Boombox, and Dream Girl.

As long as Lily Tomlin isn't involved in any way, things should run smoothly. Should be interesting to watch.

Huckabees was great

I'm looking forward to this movie because yes, I enjoy Hill, but I'm more excited about Schwartzman. And I think that I heart huckabees is a good film, mostly because it raised my awareness of philosophy.
