Jonah Hill Claims He Was Offered a Role in Django Unchained

Jonah Hill Django Unchained

Jonah Hill, hot off the heels of a hit movie and Oscar nomination, recently revealed that Quentin Tarantino offered him a role in Django Unchained. Unfortunately, the actor had to turn down the role due to scheduling conflicts. No word on what role he was offered. Here’s what Hill had to say about the new direction his career is taking:

I was thrilled that [Tarantino] wanted me to be in it, and I’ve been offered a lot of dramas since. As I mature, my sensibilities have changed. I think once you get to a certain place, your career is all about delegating time and what you want to spend your time doing. I’ve made a lot of comedies in a really short amount of time, and they’ve been ripped off every which way to Sunday. So it’s not as exciting to do those anymore.

    i’d take milch’s deadwood over tarantinos well anything to be honest. people go on and on about tarantinos dialogue and how great it is, obviously because they haven’t listened seen deadwood. that’s not to say i’m don’t like tarantinos films, i do, it’s just that milch is better at dialogue and i believe django unchained will be proof of that. deadwood didn’t feel like television it felt like a massive film.

      I respectfully disagree, and here’s why:

      Tarantino intuitively knows the strengths and weaknesses of his cast, and tailors his dialogue accordingly. Milch, while talented, is more hit-or-miss. Although we got great monologues out Al Swearengen and E.B Farnum, we also had to sit through Sol Star awkwardly fumbling through his lines. Anna Gunn, who I LOVE in Breaking Bad, is boring, useless, and wooden in Deadwood. You’d think that after three seasons, Milch would have figured out how to better utilize his talent, but he never quite got it right.

      I do think Deadwood should have at least been given a TV movie to tie things up. It’s a damn shame it ended the way it did.
