Jonah Hill is tired of comedy roles, saying that dramas are far more inspiring and compelling.
Speaking with Reuters, the “Moneyball” actor explained, “The past 10 years, I’ve made a lot of comedy films. It’s just not as inspiring to me anymore as an artist. I love doing it, but it really is exciting after ‘Moneyball’ to have that taste for something different… doing the same thing over and over again is as boring to do as it’s boring to watch.”
Hill added that “Moneyball” helped him break his funny-guy mold, a process that was difficult considering the way Hollywood tends to typecast its actors. “It’s really hard for people to see you differently than what you came out of the box in,” he said.
