Jonah Hill has undergone a big transformation in recent years and he has been turning heads for all the right reasons. The once portly actor has slimmed down significantly. While this would be enough of a metamorphosis for some, those who are still trying to wrap their minds around his new appearance. Jonah has since decided to throw the world another curve ball.
Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot is the working title of Hill’s next film. This role requires him to alter his appearance significantly and he has leaped into the challenge with great gusto. He is currently rocking a beard and a blond wig in order to look the part. The film is a biopic about the life and times of John Callahan. Callahan is a quadriplegic who is also known for his work as a cartoonist.
Callahan’s work leans heavily on the use of dark humor as well. Jonah is slated to play a spiritual figure who makes his way into Callahan’s life. Jack Black, Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara round out the all star cast. Jonah Hill may not have ever looked like this before but this is not stopping fans from drawing a wide range of comparisons.
Some are referring to him as a fatter Jared Leto and others are even calling him Post Malone. Mileage may vary when it comes to these types of comparisons. One thing is for certain: he is rocking the absolute heck out of that wig. If we did not know any better, we might assume that Jonah was a natural blond who had been serving this look forever.
The film’s casting has received controversy. Joaquin Phoenix was cast in the lead role and there are activists who believe that the role should have been given to someone who is actually paralyzed. This is the type of rhetoric that is bound to spur debate on all sides. Some believe that the best actor should receive the role and others believe that the activists are making a solid point.
