Jonah Hill was on hand on Sunday night to attend the 2011 Video Music Awards where a lot of crazy stuff went down. Like what? Well Lady Gaga was a man named Jo Calderone who tried to kiss Britney Spears, Beyonce announced she was preggers with Jay-Z’s baby and we finally saw a trailer for the highly-anticipated “Hunger Games.”
But before the party even kicked off, Hill walked the red carpet and chatted with MTV News about finally getting “21 Jump Street” into theaters next year. And, despite everything we know, he still refused to admit that the original “21 Jump Street” star, Johnny Depp, is in it.
“Well you’ll have to see,” he simply said when we mentioned Depp being in it, but he did add, “The film is great. It’s so exciting. We’ve been working on that movie for five years; somebody handed me a box of a TV show and now there’s this movie.”
He also dished about going a bit more dramatic for his forthcoming flick, “Moneyball,” which he says is “about baseball and life.”
“It’s a drama, so it is different,” he said of the film, which also stars Brad Pitt and Philip Seymour Hoffman. The film is certainly a very different one than what Hill’s done so far. This certainly doesn’t sound anything like “Superbad.” And, he says that he wants to show people that he can act in many different types of films.
“I’m excited for people to see it,” he said. “I’m proud of it. I love all different kinds of movies and as an actor you want to try as many different things as you can.”
