Our first extended opportunity to chat with Jonah Hill came in the summer of 2005, when we met up with the then largely unknown actor and his co-star Justin Long on the set of “Accepted.”
“I wouldn’t say we’re the next Farley and Spade,” Hill told MTV News of his onscreen collaboration with Long. “I would say we’re the next Rosie O’Donnell and Madonna.”
And so the comedic gauntlet was thrown down. Hill has been making us laugh ever since, cracking us up during interviews and bringing the funny in “Superbad,” “Cyrus,” “Get Him to the Greek” and many more. To celebrate his latest, “The Sitter,” and because we just have such a good time talking with Hill, we’re very proud to announce “MTV First: The Sitter,” an exclusive sit-down with the actor.
On Thursday at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV, Hill and MTV News’ Josh Horowitz will take over the airwaves, where they’ll introduce a previously unseen clip from the film and chat for a bit before continuing the conversation online for a full 30 minutes.
Directed by David Gordon Green (“Pineapple Express”), Hill stars in the new movie as a reluctant babysitter who takes three kids into New York City because he’d rather meet up with his girlfriend than stay stuck in the suburbs. Not such a wise decision, as it turns out drug deals, car crashes and general debauchery take hilarious precedence over more mundane babysitting activities. The movie also stars Max Records, Ari Graynor, Method Man , JB Smoove and Sam Rockwell.
During the “MTV First,” we’ll not only talk about “The Sitter,” but also have Jonah analyze some of the best cinematic babysitters in history, answer your Twitter questions and dish on the very latest news about Hill’s upcoming adaptation of “21 Jump Street.”
Join Jonah Hill for “MTV First: The Sitter” on Thursday at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV!
