‘The Watch’ actor Jonah Hill hails a cab after leaving a gym in New York City

Jonah Hill dropped a ton of weight last year, and then before the year was over – had put quite a bit of it back on. Looks like the comedian is looking to lose the weight again… good for him!

Speaking of ‘The Watch’, how many of you went and saw it? I had free passes to see it – and I still don’t want to waste my time with it. It looks HORRIBLE and completely unfunny. (Poor Vince Vaughn)

Turns out the movie bombed opening weekend …. no surprise.

Unsurprisingly, “The Watch,” about a neighborhood watch group, bombed in its debut weekend. Granted, Fox didn’t expect higher than a $15m opening; however, the comedy didn’t even make that.

It was uncertain how the Ben StillerVince Vaughn comedy would fare after changing marketing tactics—and its title—after Trayvon Martin was killed by a member of a neighborhood watch group.

Though the film changed its name from “Neighborhood Watch” to the slightly more vague “The Watch,” everyone knew the film was still about the same thing. The characters still prided themselves wearing “Neighborhood Watch” jackets. Even more, marketing for the film was mixed. During a midnight screening of TDKR, we viewed the film advertised as “Neighborhood Watch.”

Jonah Hill And Channing Tatum Premiere ’21 Jump Street’

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum hit the red carpet last night for the premiere of their new flick ‘21 Jump Street’.

Also in attendance: original ’21 Jump Street’ cast members Holly Robinson Peete (who is also in the film) and Richard Grieco.  Richard isn’t listed as having a role in the new version, but Johnny Depp makes a small and uncredited appearance as his former hunky character Tom Hanson.

I have to admit that I was completely against this “reboot/remake/whatever you want to call it” (and not just because I don’t care for Jonah Hill), but after watching the trailer…I might go check it out.

Jonah Hill Speaks on SAG & Globe Nods – “I’m Trying Not to Get Wrapped Up in All of This”

Jonah Hill should be boasting and celebrating his two major nominations — one from the Screen Actors Guild and the other a Golden Globe — for his role opposite Brad Pitt in Moneyball, but even though he calls the nods “fantastic,” he says he’s trying not to fall into the hype of it all.

“I have been trying not to get wrapped up in all of this, in everything.”

“Any expectation of getting a SAG nomination or an Oscar nomination are sort of absurd expectations to put on yourself,” he says. “So the fact that I actually got this nomination was so overwhelmingly moving and thrilling and surreal. I am really just kind of shocked.”

“The phone calls and emails I have gotten today are unlike any I have ever experienced. I feel like I got married or had a kid or something. I have never had anything like this happen to me before. My parents were actually crying.”

The 27-year-old is up against Kenneth Branagh in My Week with Marilyn for the Golden Globe, along with Albert Brooks in Drive, Viggo Mortensen in A Dangerous Method and Christopher Plummer in Beginners. In the SAG category, he’s joined by Branagh and Plummer, as well as Armie Hammer in J. Edgar and Nick Nolte in Warrior.

“I am so in shock and awe right now that I can not even begin to conceptualize the fact that I am up there with them.”

“It is not too often you get the second lead opposite Brad Pitt [also SAG and Globe nominated] in a film,” said Hill. “It did feel like a momentous occasion in my life when I got the part, and it was.”

Congrats!

Jonah Hill: “The fact that the Kardashians could be more popular than a show like Mad Men is disgusting.”

Jonah Hill has taken aim at the Kardashian family – and you gotta give the guy credit. He makes some very good points.

Actor Jonah Hill is angry about the success of the Kardashian family’s reality TV shows. Last month, Daniel Craig, 43, ranted that the clan act like ‘f***ing idiots’ for money, and now the Moneyball actor has shared his take on their growing media empire.

Hill said that while he often finds himself watching one of their shows, he finds it ‘disgusting’ that they earn better ratings than higher quality scripted shows.

The 27-year-old said: ‘The truth of it is, I have friends who work in TV and the Kardashians get higher ratings than their TV shows. Shows that people actually work hard on – writing and creating and trying to tell stories. The fact that the Kardashians could be more popular than a show like Mad Men is disgusting.’

‘It’s a super disgusting part of our culture, but I still find it funny to make a joke about it. Whenever I say I like reality TV, people write about it like they’re in shock. I can’t even understand it, so I watch it,’ he told The Huffington Post.

‘I think it’s funny and I definitely enjoy it in a making-fun-of-it sort of way, but where does the line sort of end? When do I stop making fun of it and become an actual fan?’

But the star doesn’t put all the blame on Kourtney, 32, Kim, 31, and 27-year-old Khloe.

He added: ‘The Kardashians are as famous as our president. What does that tell you about how skewed our society is?’

He’s so right! Scripted shows barely stand a chance anymore. Networks spend so much money making them – that if they’re not successful immediately, they get canned. Programs like the 10,000 Kardashian shows continue to air – over, and over, and over and over, and millions of people tune in every night. I bet that does make people who work hard on shows like ‘Mad Men’ and the likes – very unhappy. Shows like the Kardashians take all the creativity and art out of TV!

Anyway BRAVO Jonah!
