Jonah Hill was babbling like a school girl crush about how he took SAG minimum for his supporting role in Wolf of Wall Street. He told Howard Stern that he would’ve paid his own money for the chance to be in a Scorsese film, so taking league minimum was more than enough.
They gave me the lowest amount of money possible, that was their offer.” “I said, ‘I will sign the paper tonight. Fax me the papers tonight.’ I want to sign them tonight before they change their mind. I said I want to sign them before I go to sleep tonight so they legally can’t change their mind.”
Whoa, easy there, Lizzy Mcguire. Where the fuck was your agent when you bent over and told a $100 million movie to plunder your anal cherry on the gratis. I guess nobody told Jonah that he could’ve had the money and the role, you know, like DiCaprio who accepted $10 million for the same film. I remember when Randy Quaid was convinced to work for peanuts to help get Brokeback Mountain made so Ang Lee could reinforce the fact that even masculine American cowboys are secretly gay. Quaid sued when he found out the filmmakers were earning major bank off the film. Then he went crazy and fled to Canada to escape a murderous Hollywood cabal in his mind and even the Canadians wouldn’t have him.
I don’t want to see stupid rewarded. At the same time, I hate to see fat Jewish kids begging for refugee status at the northern border. Maybe they can throw Jonah Hill a few bones and give him a cuff on the head for being such a dandelion and call it a day.
