Jonah Hill Embroiled In Twitter War With TV Anchor

Jonah Hill
Jonah Hill became entangled in a Twitter war on Thursday after a TV anchor branded the funnyman rude.

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...

Jonah Hill Says He's 'Bored' With Comedy Roles

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.

The actor helped make 2007 hits Superbad and Knocked Up box office success stories, but his turn in Brad Pitt's sports movie Moneyball last year prompted nominations for a slew of top honors.

Hill now wants to focus on more serious roles, admitting funny films no longer stimulate him as much as they once did.

He tells Reuters, "The past 10 years, I've made a lot of comedy films. It's just not as inspiring to me anymore as an a...

Jonah Hill originally turned down the chance to star in the remake of 21 Jump Street as he feared it was just a money-making exercise by studio bosses.

Hill stars alongside Channing Tatum as police officers who are sent back to school posing as students, in the new movie based on the hit 1980s TV series.

However, the Superbad funnyman, who also co-wrote the film, had to be persuaded to star in the movie and only agreed after coming up with "a cool idea" for the story.

He says, "When they approached me to do it five years ago, I tended to roll my eyes like everybody else would when you...

"I still really like acting, but I feel like if a day ca...

Emma Stone's Little Leather VMAs Dress - Hot Or Not?

Emma Stone
Emma Stone stars in "Easy A," which opened in theaters on Friday. The rising star wore a hot leather dress at this year's MTV Video Music Awards last Sunday; and with her new film getting great reviews we're guessing that Emma's movie career is going to get pretty hot too!

Emma says that she's resigned herself to the fact she'll never star in a Broadway musical - because her voice isn't strong enough to cope with the grueling stage demands.

The "Zombieland" star grew up performing in regional theater in her native Arizona, and loved seeing Broadway shows as a kid.

But the 21 year old pre...

'Easy A' Should Launch Emma Stone's Career To Next Level

9/17/2010 9:03am EDT
You may remember Emma Stone as the girl the Superbad guys had a crush on, or the girl the Zombieland guys had to join in the zombie fight. She finally gets a movie all about her this week. Easy A is her first leading role and it’s likely to launch her into a new strata.

“I think it was less the size of the role and more the wanting to do her justice,” Stone said. “It was about the part. I loved the character so much and I felt so protective of her that doing it wrong or misstepping, you could dislike her if it was done wrong. She's not an unlikable character, and I worried about that all t...

Emma Stone showed up to the "Easy A" premiere in Los Angeles earlier this week wearing a really, really sparkly gold and blue dress. Is there such a thing as too many sequins?

"Easy A" is a re-imagining of Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlet Letter." It's a contemporary high school comedy about a scheming student who plots to give her popularity a boost by painting herself the easiest lay in school.

Emma is also starring in the upcoming film "The Help" in which a 1960s-era Mississippi debutante sends her community into an uproar by conducting a series of probing interviews with the black s...

Rachel Weisz fears she may have killed her chance to land a role in a Judd Apatow comedy - because the filmmaker hasn't called since she drunkenly confessed her "passion for him" at a Hollywood party.

"The Mummy" star admits she's a big fan of the "SuperBad" producer, and has been desperate to work on one of Apatow's films for years.

She says, "I worship Judd Apatow. I think he's extremely funny. His work is ground-breaking... I lov...

Jonah Hill: 'I Couldn't Go Home To My Girlfriend With Urine-Covered Pants'

Jonah Hill
Funnyman Jonah Hill has no regrets about his 2006 arrest for urinating in a public place because he would rather risk a run-in with the law than face the embarrassment of soiling himself.

The "Superbad" star was held up in heavy traffic one night in Los Angeles, so decided to relieve himself in an alleyway.

Cops spotted Hill committing the crime and he was taken into custody.

But the actor is adamant he did nothing wrong and he would do it all over again if he found himself stuck in a similar sticky situation.

Hill tells Britain's FHM magazine, "(It's) my deep dark secret. I was literal...

Rap mogul Diddy pulled the ultimate prank on his Get Him To The Greek co-star Jonah Hill during a night out in Los Angeles - by convincing him he had a loaded gun on his person as they sped along Sunset Boulevard in the actor's car.

The Superbad star thought it would be fun to hang out with the party king, but soon learned to be careful what you wish for as Diddy took over.

Hill says, "He called shotgun in my car, so I'm driving down the street... he's drinking a bottle of vodka and then he puts his foot down on the gas level... We're going, like, 100 miles an hour, swerves the car into...

Funnyman Jonah Hill once mistook Casey Affleck for a drunken pal in a hotel restroom - and made the actor pee all over himself.

The "SuperBad" star was doing some underage drinking at Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel years ago when he decided to play a trick on his friend Schmidt when he spotted him at a urinal during a trip to the toilet.

He says, "We used to play this game called earthquake, which is where you violently shake whoever is peeing at the urinal and scream out 'earthquake' as loud as you can.

"So Schmidt's peeing there and I'm really drunk and I grabbed his shoulders... and I'm ...

The Ten Greatest Movies Of The Decade

The Ten Greatest Movies Of The Decade
So far, we've given you lists of the Ten Greatest TV Shows, Songs, and Albums of the decade. Now it's time to turn our focus to the Silver Screen.

This decade, moviemaking became incredibly fractured. After the Indie Boom of the nineties there suddenly wasn't much of a difference between an independent/art film and the mainstream movies from blockbuster studios. Many of these studios were now attempting to make their own indies, blurring the lines and resulting in more failures than successes.

Of course, there were still plenty of good movies to go around. The following is a list ...

The Ballad Of 'Black Dynamite' And How A Film Got Lost

11/27/2009 10:26am EST
Black Dynamite
In October 2009, a modestly budgeted blaxploitation send-up called "Black Dynamite" launched onto screens and stayed there for about a week. After an opening weekend gross of roughly $131,000, averaging out to about $1000 per screen, the film's distributor quickly pulled it from theaters despite it gaining positive buzz in the press. Thankfully, however, the film's quick stint in theaters will be rectified by an expedited February release on DVD, and its internet buzz is growing stronger despite the studio's complete lack of effort in advertising the film. The story behind the making and re...

The Invention of Lying is the brilliant new Ricky Gervais comedy about a society where there's no such thing as lying and then a gentleman essentially creates the first lie, rolls with it and creates waves along the way.

We had the chance to sit down with Martin Starr, who is one of the best character actors around under the age of 30 (Freaks and Geeks, Knocked Up, SuperBad) , to talk about his part in the film and some of the things that he's up to.

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, the official end to summer has now passed. Yes, the days will now be shorter, the weather cooler (unless you're smart enough to live in Southern California like this column's scribe), and for some school resuming its session, but there's also a lot of good news.

TV is back, football is back, and summer movie season is finally at its end. Yes, no more summer movies, no more endless weekends filled with event films that shatter theater speakers and routinely melt screens with too much rambunctious action. It's a thankful end to a season that routine...

August Can Be A Viable Movie Month Despite Its Reputation

8/12/2009 5:01pm EDT
The Bourne Ultimatum
While Hollywood has staked out late May, June and July as prime summer movie territory, August has gotten lost in the shuffle. August isn't as big of a dump month as September or January, but you usually don't find studios queuing up to put their surefire tent pole smashes there.

With summer winding down, younger audiences are turning their attentions back to school, families are getting in one final vacation, and cooler weather in some regions are all valid reasons why studios feel like box office for their mega-budgeted pictures would be affected by an August release.

Which leaves...
