Jonah Hill joins cast of Gus Van Sant's Don't Worry, He Won't Go Far on Foot

12.16.2016

As we reported a couple weeks ago, Joaquin Phoenix is set to play iconoclast cartoonist John Callahan for Gus Van Sant based on Callahan's autobiography DON'T WORRY, HE WON'T GO FAR ON FOOT, where he describes:

[After becoming] paralyzed in a car accident at age 21, [Callahan] turned to drawing as a form of therapy. For decades Callahan’s work raised eyebrows for its taboo topics leading to numerous boycotts in his hometown of Portland.

Now it seems another cast member has been brought on board, in the guise of Jonah Hill. No word on what part he'll play (probably a foul, loud-mouthed best friend who improvises a lot). Now to be fair, Jonah was nominated for two Oscars and even recently got nominated for a Golden Globe for his work on WAR DOGS. On the other hand, two out of three of those roles were for being the loud, constantly improvising best friend. So we'll see if he stretches his acting muscles on this one or not. 

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this film, as John Callahan is a fascinating figure, Gus Van Sant (minus a PSYCHO or SEA OF TREES) is a pretty great director, and both Joaquin Phoenix and Jonah Hill are fine actors.

But what do you Schmoes think? Sound off below!

Extra Tidbit: Jonah Hill has been in quite a few true life stories, most notably WOLF OF WALL STREET, WAR DOGS, and MONEYBALL.

Whatever...

The guy is a comedic actor. When he started out, did anyone ever expect him to do anything other than dumb judd Apatow comedies with Seth Rogen and Franco? Even tho the character wasn't a reach for him, he was outstanding in the wolf of wall street and held his own opposite of Leo. As others have stated, he was the complete opposite of his norm in moneyball... And pretty damn good supporting another great actor. He went outside his norm for True Story as well. But so what if takes on the

But so what if takes on the same role... He is good at what he is. I don't hear many people complain when Denzel or wahlberg take on the same role... Hell, even sandler had made the same dumbest fucking movie ever 7 times over and people still go see them.

Um did you see Moneyball?

"On the other hand, all three of those roles were for being the loud, constantly improvising best friend."

No. Not in Moneyball. Not at all.

you know this might seem to be a really weird out of left field ting to say but I was watching an interview with Frank Luntz (the right wing pollster) last night and he has the same speaking style as Hill does in Moneyball. So If that guy ever shows up in a movie (and I don't know why he would) get Hill to play him.

Ugh

Writer commentary on this site is getting worse. Hill's roles in Wolf of Wall Street and Moneyball couldn't be more different.
