Jonah Hill seems to have struck a great balance. He’s still got comedic chops (“21 Jump Street”) but is also proving himself as  dramatic actor in “Moneyball” and the upcoming “The Wolf of Wall Street”. Now comes news that Jonah Hill turned down a role in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” as well as all three leads in “The Hangover”. Yes, he was offered all three leads.

“They were both really big decisions, and ones that most people didn’t understand,” he told Bullett. “I knew I could be a dramatic actor, but I also knew I couldn’t go from Superbad to Schindler’s List.”

Pretty interesting insight. Probably a smart career move for him.
