Jonah Hill joining Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn's Neighborhood Watch

08.17.2011

Ears are starting to perk up about NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH, a new comedy starring Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn to be helmed by The Lonely Island's Akiva Schaffer. It could be argued that both actors are a touch past their comedic peak, but it's still a combination that inspires confidence with the right plot.

Now also set to join the cast is newly skinny funnyman Jonah Hill, fresh off THE SITTER and 21 JUMP STREET. Everyone apparently has been loving him in the MONEYBALL trailer and now he's a hot commodity.

The plot of NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH follows the titular group headed by Stiller and Vaughn who uncovers an alien invasion. Uh, didn't see that one coming, did you? It sounds a bit ATTACK THE BLOCK-ish, albeit with less British teens and more middle aged white guys.

Hill's role is yet unclear, but they'll have to find some room to pay him as Stiller and Vaughn's salary's reportedly eat up a fair amount of the $90M budget. Spend more on CGI aliens, and you don't have too much to work with.

Extra Tidbit: One of the most significant "not for a movie" body transformations I've seen.

Ugh...

Western society surrounds us with overweight people. Don't diss the guy for losing weight. Sure - if your used to seeing him severely obese, he's gonna look weird at a healthy weight.

Besides - if we're going to throw stones, I'm guessing half the folks here need to undergo a weight loss transformation of their own.

Well, looks like we need a new funny fat guy

Rogen and Hill were holding that spot for a few years. Jack Black really isn't THAT fat. Who's next? Josh Gad?

I swear as youre watching Greek you can see his body weight shift back and forth as youre watching. But anyway some guys arent meant to be skinny. Your body should match your head

I don't think any 'transformation' has been as dramatic as Ethan Suplee. Watch him in 'Wilfred' and then 'We Are the Titans' you'd never think they were the same person.

Awkward as a skinny guy

Jonah Hill's lost the weight, now he has to hit the gym. He looks WEIRD skinny. Plain and simple.
