Jonah Hill is not one to mess with. He made that clear on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” when he called out “Glee” star Matthew Morrison for using his name as a punch line, and he addressed it again during an “MTV First” for his upcoming film “The Sitter,” airing Thursday at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV and MTV.com.
Hill took some time out of his interview with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz to address the maybe (but not really) feud with TV’s Mr. Schue. “It’s so funny, because it’s so a joke,” he said. “I think it’s so funny.”
Hill explained that, during a party both he and Morrison attended, the “Glee” star used his name as a punch line in a joke he told Chace Crawford. Those two actors may have laughed, but Hill definitely didn’t. He took his beef to “Late Night” and made the whole affair public. “So I called him out on ‘Fallon’ and pretend got really angry, like old WWF wrestling style. I got in the camera’s face and stuff,” Hill said.
Morrison saw this and replied with his own challenge that appeared on “Late Night” a few days later. “He made a video back, which was very funny, and I still have never seen him or spoken to him or anything,” Hill explained.
Whether the feud is real, we (and Hill) still don’t know, but things were only complicated when a friend of Hill’s flew on the same plane as Morrison. “A guy I know was on a plane with him and was like, ‘Hey, I’m friends with Jonah Hill.’ And he’s like, ‘OK.’ So [my friend] is like, ‘Is this thing funny?’ and [Morrison] is like, ‘I don’t know.’ Not mean, just deadpan. ‘I don’t know.’ I don’t think either of us know what’s really happening,” Hill said.
All confusion aside, Hill assured Horowitz that he is ready if a battle ever comes. “I’m going to prepare to fight. If it ends up just being awesome and he’s nice, I’ll be prepared for that also, but I’m going to prepare to fight,” Hill said. “Any type of “Glee” event, I’m prepared to throw down.”
“MTV First: The Sitter” hits MTV and MTV.com on Thursday at 7:56 p.m. ET with an exclusive clip from the movie and an interview with Jonah Hill immediately afterward!
