Jonah Hill and The Wolf Of Wall Street director Martin Scorsese couldn't contain their giggles on the film set as Leonardo DiCaprio threw up following a sushi binge.

He explains, "The thing about Leo is, he's a really great actor, but he plays rough. We had fight scenes in the movie where we have to play physical with each other, and he basically beat the crap out of me for six months - and he's bigger then me, so I couldn't really retaliate and cause damage.

Actor Jonah Hill's preparation for Martin Scorsese's new movie The Wolf Of Wall Street included learning how to speak while wearing prosthetic teeth.

The 21 Jump Street star had to practice talking for a month before shooting the film to make sure he could be understood when filming began.

He tells U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America, "It was interesting because I had to learn how to re-talk again because I had such a horrible lisp when I put them on... I would rehearse with them in and I would just also make phone calls all the time with the teeth in, so I could lose my lisp and als...

Jonah Hill would try drugs for a film role.
The 29-year-old actor is earning rave reviews for his role as Donnie Azoff in new period crime caper 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and he admits he would have "genuinely" liked to try a discontinued sedative-hypnotic substance called quaalude, production on which was halted in 1985 due to addiction and widespread misuse, to prepare for the role.
He said: "I tried as hard as I could to find a quaalude, and I could not find any. I mean, I'm not, like, a drug person, but I genuinely would've tried one to see."
Instead, the actor was provided a "drug expe...

11 Stars Who Will Never Be People's 'Sexiest Man Alive'

Channing Tatum
Channing Tatum was named this year's Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine, the 24th guy to earn the superficial title.

Tatum joins the likes of George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, Harrison Ford, Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt on the list; which has been around for 27 years now; and we thought we'd have a little fun with it and come up with a list of the top 10 guys we think (and are pretty sure) will never be named "Sexiest Man Alive" by People -- or any other publication, for that matter.

It may seem a little mean, but it's all in the name of good humor; and if anybody can take it, it's these...

CNN broadcaster Don Lemon took to the website to complain about the Superbad star after bumping into him, writing, "Said hi to Jonah Hill in hotel. Think he thought I was bellman. Didn't know his name til bellman told me. A lesson to always be kind... He was a tool."

Hill was quick to fire back with his own version of events, tweeting, "I said hi, what do you want me to do, move in with you? I was in a hurry. Didn't realize you were a 12 year old girl. Peace," which prompted Lemon to re...

Now, he's juicing up his resume even more with Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained."

Jonah Hill
Jonah Hill is eager to move away from the comedy roles which made him famous, insisting they're "boring" and "just not as inspiring" as working on drama movies.

10 Fun Facts About The Original '21 Jump Street'

March 15th, 2012 11:00am EDT
21 Jump Street Cast
As part of Hollywood's neverending pillaging of the TV landscape of my youth, the big-screen reboot of "21 Jump Street" hits theaters this Friday. Having been a huge fan of the show, I was opposed to the film from the get-go. However, after hearing that most (if not all) of the main cast members have cameos, and that the movie has very little in common with the series aside from the title and basic premise, I'm not so dead set against it. Besides, if it does well, there's a good chance that some network will start airing reruns of the original show, allowing me to rekindle my once-raging cr...
