Who Doesn’t Laugh At The Memory of Seth In Superbad? Here Are Jonah Hill’s Funniest Movies

Since Jonah Hill graced the cinema screen in Judd Apatow’s “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” his lighthearted, excellent acting prowess has never stopped enthralling us. Initially, he made waves with his comedic performances in pictures such as “Superbad” and “Knocked Up.” However, it was only a matter of time before the star transitioned into more serious roles. Here are five of Jonah’s funniest movies.


Produced in 2011, “Moneyball” dramatizes the story of the 2002 Oakland Athletics. The film, directed by Bennett Miller and written by Aaron Sorkin, shows the baseball team with a hamstrung budget entering the new season. The team’s manager, Billy Beane, decided to recruit more creatively.

Jonah Hill played Peter Brand, the Assistant General Manager that Billy hired. Together, the duo employed a new manner of evaluating players called sabermetrics, in the hope that it would lead the Athletics to the World Series.

Hail, Caesar!

In 2016, the Coen brothers assembled a very funny ensemble for their film “Hail, Caesar!” Josh Brolin plays postwar Hollywood “fixer” Eddie Mannix as he goes about his occupation, trying to keep quiet the various scandals his studio’s stars get themselves into.

Jonah plays Joseph Silverman, a financial agent for the studio who becomes an unconventional solution to one of Mannix’s many, many problems. Trust Jonah to draw the audience in with his funny remarks and gestures. Needless to say, the film was entertaining.

The Wolf of Wall Street

While the 2013 movie isn’t a comedy, Jonah Hill’s acting made the movie even more renowned. We all agree that the dramatization of the life of fraudulent stockbroker Jordan Belfort would be incomplete without Jonah Hill.

Jonah played the role of Donnie Azoff, acting opposite Belfort (played by Leonardo DiCaprio). They both started a brokerage firm named Stratton Oakmont which helps them rake in illegal millions. Some of the actor’s fans believe it was his best performance in several years.

21 Jump Street

In 2012, Jonah Hill didn’t just act in the film 21 Jump Street, he co-wrote it. The film was a comedic take on the 80s crime series of the same name. Jonah and Channing Tatum played former high school foes Schmidt and Jenko.

The two were partners in the local police department and were assigned to work undercover at a high school to bring a synthetic drug ring to light. Interestingly, they find the power dynamics of students have shifted significantly since they were in class.


You can’t say you’re a Jonah Hill fan if you’ve not seen “Superbad!” Released in 2007, “Superbad” was one of the most entertaining comedies of the decade. The story is about funny high school experiences. Jonah Hill and Michael Cera played best friends Seth and Evan.

The two hope to impress their love interests, Jules (Emma Stone) and Becca (Martha MacIsaac), by bringing alcohol to a house party. However, things got quite difficult when their fake ID source became unavailable, and they had to get alcohol from another source.
