Jonah Hill has been “humbled” to learn he has surpassed Samuel L. Jackson’s onscreen cursing record.

The Superbad actor took to Instagram on Wednesday to post a screenshot of an article on The Wrap with the headline, “Jonah Hill Passes Samuel L Jackson With Most F**king Swear Words on Film.”

In the accompanying caption, Jonah celebrated the news by thanking his The Wolf of Wall Street director Martin Scorsese for helping him to achieve the record.

“So many people to thank. @martinscorsese_ thanks for pushing me over the edge. And of course the great @samuelljackson. Humbled,” he wrote, adding: “(Also ‘new report’? Lol what team of scientists cracked this one?). Lots of love.”

According to the new Profanity on Film report from Buzz Bingo, Hill has collectively said the most swear words in all the movies he’s appeared in, with a total of 376 profanities. He was followed by his The Wolf of Wall Street co-star Leonardo DiCaprio in the rankings, who has 361 curse words recorded, and Jackson, who had 301.

Jackson has become well known for using curse words in films, especially in flicks like Jackie Brown and Snakes on a Plane.

Other celebrities on the list included Adam Sandler, Al Pacino, Denzel Washington, Billy Bob Thornton, Seth Rogen, Bradley Cooper, and Danny McBride.

Responding to Hill’s Instagram post, his friend and frequent collaborator Rogen simply commented, “The dream.”

And in response, the 36-year-old wrote: “We should make a last dance (2020 series about Michael Jordan’s basketball career) style doc of me exhausted getting to the final f**k. ‘I can’t do it anymore!'”

Buzz Bingo’s analysts studied over 3,500 movie scripts for their report.

Jonah Hill and Yara Shahidi have been tapped to star in Adidas Originals’ new team-themed campaign.

The actor/filmmaker recently confirmed he was collaborating with the German sportswear giant, and earlier this week, announced he was appearing in and had directed an advertisement titled Change Is a Team Sport.

The clip follows skater Jennifer Soto as she makes her way through a facility, where creators and Adidas brand ambassadors, all decked out in black tracksuits and Superstar sneakers, come together to work for change.

“There’s no knowledge without the older generation who did it first,” Jonah said of the concept. “And there’s no change or progression without the new generation. So, if those two generations come together, I feel like that creates the atomic charge for great art and great creativity.”

In addition to Jonah, Yara, and Jennifer, the commercial also features cameos from famed gamer Ninja, entertainer Kerwin Frost, K-pop sensation Blackpink, Pharrell Williams, skaters Mariah Duran, Blondey, Mark Gonzales, and Tyshawn Jones, basketballers Liz Cambage and Tracy McGrady, soccer star Paul Pogba, designer/DJ Nigo, rapper Jackson Wang, dancer Mette Towley, and fashion designer Anna Isoniemi.

“Change Is a Team Sport campaign celebrates the idea that when creators join together, we can drive and inspire change,” added Torben Schumacher, general manager of the Adidas Originals & Style Global Brand. “Much like the way the adidas Superstar has been the shoe for game-changing creators and teams for 50 years and counting, we’ve looked to our Adidas family to inspire the next generation and create a new legacy for one of the most iconic shoes of all time.”

Jonah Hill has confirmed he’s collaborating with Adidas.

The Wolf of Wall Street actor officially announced on Tuesday via Instagram that he has teamed up with executives at the German sportswear giant for an unspecified project.

“This is the official announcement that I’m partnering with adidas,” he wrote in the caption besides a video showing the Adidas logo besides his name handwritten in capital letters. “Thank you adidas for trusting me and believing in my ideas and pushing them to become even better. This is a dream for me to start the journey of creating with a team I respect and love. Thrilled to show you all what we’ve been working on. More coming very soon. @adidasoriginals.”

In the comments, his celebrity friends showed their support for the partnership, with Naomi Campbell posting a series of clapping and heart emojis, Olivia Wilde writing, “Coooool” with a clapping emoji, and his mother Sharon Feldstein, who called herself a “proud mama”.

The 36-year-old didn’t reveal any further details about the collaboration, which he had teased a year ago on the Failing Upwards podcast.

However, it was rumoured on social media earlier this month that they were releasing two colourways of the Samba shoe and a new iteration of the Superstar shoe. These details haven’t been confirmed.

Jonah has been a longtime fan of the Adidas brand and helped promote their updated Lxcon sneakers on his Instagram account in October 2018 before their official release.

The star joins the likes of Kanye West and Beyonce, who have developed their Yeezy and Ivy Park collections with the company.

Paul Dano set to take on the Riddler in The Batman

Paul Dano is reportedly in talks to take on the role of the Riddler in The Batman.

The casting news comes hours after it was revealed Jonah Hill had pulled out of playing a criminal mastermind in Matt Reeves’s dark take on Gotham City’s crime-fighting superhero.

Should he accept the gig, Dano will join Robert Pattinson, who was announced earlier this summer as the new Batman after taking over from Ben Affleck, alongside Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Jim Gordon.

According to editors at Variety, the There Will Be Blood star is currently in negotiations with bosses at Warner Bros., who offered Dano, 35, the role once Hill had turned down the chance to star in the DC Comics movie.

It’s believed the Riddler’s alter ego will be known as Edward Nashton.

Jim Carrey previously played the supervillain in 1995’s Batman Forever, alongside Val Kilmer as Batman and Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face.

Cloverfield director Reeves previously revealed that The Batman will be a darker, noir take on the comic book hero, as he wants to present a more grounded portrayal of the character.

“What’s exciting about Batman is how it relates to now and also how personal it can be,” the 53-year-old filmmaker, who took over the reins of the movie after Affleck departed the project, explained. “It’s very much a point-of-view-driven, noir Batman tale. It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional.”

Jonah Hill has reportedly exited negotiations regarding a role in The Batman.

The two-time Oscar-nominated actor was reportedly offered a role in Matt Reeves’s upcoming superhero movie, which will star Robert Pattinson as Gotham city’s crime-fighting Caped Crusader, but talks have now broken down between Warner Bros. and Hill, according to editors at Deadline.

The news comes just days after it was confirmed Zoe Kravitz would be playing Selina Kyle and her feline villain alter-ego, Catwoman.

Hill has been in talks with studio bosses for months, and it was reported in September that he was in the early stages of accepting the role of a villain, which multiple outlets had suggested was The Riddler.

It is unknown why the 35-year-old passed on the role, however, sources told Collider that Hill had wanted $10 million (£7.8 million) to play a villain, which is allegedly more than double what Warner Bros. executives are paying Pattinson to play the lead.

The outlet also suggested that while Hill was in talks to play The Riddler, the Superbad star had actually wanted to play the smaller role of the sewer-dwelling Penguin, but director Reeves had already approached another actor for that character.

Hill recently starred opposite Emma Stone in Netflix’s sci-fi series Maniac and was last on the big screen alongside Matthew McConaughey in The Beach Bum earlier this year.

Pre-production on The Batman is expected to begin soon, with filming slated to start in late 2019 or early 2020, ahead of a tentative release date of June 2021.

A rep for Hill has yet to comment on the report.

Beanie Feldstein feels more comfortable playing “the supportive role” on film.

The 26-year-old, the sister of Jonah Hill, found success playing the best friend of Saoirse Ronan in 2017’s Lady Bird, and went on to receive acclaim for Booksmart, which she lead with Kaitlyn Dever.

She followed that up with How to Build a Girl, the adaptation of journalist Caitlin Moran’s novel which follows a girl who transforms from an unpopular loner to a ruthless music writer.

In an interview with Teen Vogue, Beanie confessed that it was challenging being the lead and “not having another person to create energy with and bounce off of.”

“I feel so much more comfortable being the supportive role,” she added.

While Beanie was filming How to Build a Girl, Kaitlyn was filming Netflix series Unbelievable, another intense and solitary role, and they would text each other and say, “Where are you?! I’m alone out here and I miss looking at your face.”

How to Build a Girl required Beanie to master a regional British accent and, for one scene, wear a swimsuit made out of plastic bags, and she admitted that any time she felt nervous or intimidated during filming she would think about the impact it will have on young girls.

“Imagine if I had seen a girl with my body and my spirit on camera in a trash-bag bikini? That’s powerful stuff,” she gushed. “I just feel honoured to be a part of stories that, had I been 15 when they came out, I would have been first in line at the movie theatre.”

Jonah Hill is in talks to play a villain in The Batman.

It was announced back in June that Robert Pattinson would be the next actor to take on Gotham’s caped crusader for Matt Reeves’ upcoming movie, and now the 33-year-old finally has some co-stars.

Editors at Variety have reported that two-time Oscar nominee Hill is circling an unknown villain role, and film fans began speculating on social media if The Wolf of Wall Street star would be portraying Oswald Cobblepot/ Penguin, a role made iconic by Danny DeVito in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns in 1992.

However, Collider reporters have claimed Hill will be portraying Edward Nygma/ Riddler, who was previously played by Jim Carrey in 1995’s Batman Forever.

According to Variety, producers had long wanted Hill for The Batman, but any casting decisions were put on hold until Pattinson was confirmed to play the billionaire Bruce Wayne and his crime-fighting alter-ego.

Westworld actor Jeffrey Wright is also in negotiations to play Batman’s ally Commissioner Jim Gordon, who has most recently been portrayed in film by Gary Oldman and J.K. Simmons, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Pre-production on the Warner Bros. movie has already begun, and insiders told Variety that filming could start later this year or early 2020.

Filmmaker Reeves, who helmed the Planet of the Apes sequels, took over the directorial reigns on The Batman from Ben Affleck after the actor departed the project following Justice League in 2017.

Hill was last seen opposite Emma Stone in Netflix’s sci-fi series Maniac and returned to the big screen in Matthew McConaughey’s The Beach Bum.

The Batman is slated to be released in June 2021.

Kathy Bates joins Clint Eastwood’s The Ballad of Richard Jewell

Kathy Bates has joined the cast of Clint Eastwood’s upcoming drama The Ballad of Richard Jewell.

According to editors at Deadline, the Misery actress has been cast in the role of insurance claims adjuster Bobi Jewell, the mother of Richard Jewell, a security guard who was wrongly accused of planting the bombs he found in a bag during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia.

Her casting comes days after it was revealed Vice actor Sam Rockwell would be playing the lawyer who defended Jewell in court, and Paul Walter Hauser, who recently had roles in I, Tonya and BlacKkKlansman, would be portraying Jewell.

In 1996, Jewell was hailed a hero for being the first to discover the suspicious abandoned backpack containing three pipe bombs and alerting the authorities, saving hundreds of lives. That soon changed when he was accused of planting it in the first place. He maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal and was finally cleared by FBI investigators after 88 days, but his reputation and health were forever damaged. Jewell, who became a police officer, died in 2007 at the age of 44 after suffering from severe heart disease, kidney disease, and diabetes.

The project will be directed and produced by Eastwood, while other producers include The Wolf of Wall Street co-stars Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio, who had both originally been attached to appear in the drama.

Billy Ray, who penned the screenplays for Captain Phillips and The Hunger Games, will write the script based on a Vanity Fair magazine article by Marie Brenner.

In addition to Eastwood’s film, Bates, who was most recently seen in Bonnie and Clyde drama The Highwaymen, has also been cast alongside Lil Rel Howery in Home, a drama about an ex-felon who returns home from prison and has to confront his past.

Sam Rockwell to star in Clint Eastwood’s upcoming drama

Sam Rockwell is in final negotiations to replace Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood’s latest movie.

The Oscar-winning actor has almost reached a deal to star in The Ballad of Richard Jewell, which will be directed and produced by the American Sniper filmmaker, according to Variety.

The film is based on the story of real-life security guard Jewell, whose life was turned upside down when he was wrongly accused of planting the pipe bombs he found at Centennial Park during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Rockwell will play the attorney who defended Jewell after he became one of the most hated men in America. The part of Jewell is yet to be cast.

The Wolf of Wall Street co-stars Jonah Hill and DiCaprio had originally been attached to star in the drama, with the Titanic actor initially onboard the project to play the lawyer, but they will no longer appear in the film and will simply serve as producers.

Billy Ray, who penned the screenplays for Captain Phillips and The Hunger Games, will write the script based on a Vanity Fair magazine article by Marie Brenner.

In 1996, Jewell was hailed a hero for being the first to discover the suspicious abandoned backpack containing three pipe bombs and alerting the authorities, saving hundreds of lives. That soon changed when he was accused of planting it in the first place. He maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal and was finally cleared by FBI investigators after 88 days, but his reputation and health were forever damaged. He died in 2007 after suffering from severe heart disease, kidney disease, and diabetes.

Rockwell won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri in 2018 and followed it up with a second consecutive nomination for his portrayal of former U.S. President George W. Bush in Vice.

He recently earned strong reviews for playing dancer Bob Fosse in TV mini-series Fosse/Verdon, and can next be seen in Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit.

Clint Eastwood is considering a return to real-life drama The Ballad Of Richard Jewell after previously walking away from the project.

Deadline sources claim the veteran movie star and director has been in discussions with Disney/Fox about taking charge of the film, which is based on the life of a security guard whose life was turned upside down following the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing.

Jewell went from hero to zero when law enforcement officials leaked the news that he was a possible suspect in the incident.

In fact, Jewell discovered a suspicious backpack in the Olympics compound, cleared the area and saved lives, but the actions of an overzealous reporter put his life at risk as critics felt sure he had planted the device. Jewell was later cleared as a suspect by the FBI but his reputation was ruined. He died of of a heart attack in 2007, aged 44.

Based on the Vanity Fair article The Ballad Of Richard Jewell, the film project has been circling Hollywood for years and Eastwood was previously attached, as was Jonah Hill as Jewell, while Leonardo DiCaprio was reportedly in talks to portray the security guard’s lawyer.

If Eastwood signs on, he will be tasked with assembling his own cast for a possible summer (19) shoot. It will serve as his follow-up to last year’s (18) The Mule.

DiCaprio and Hill still have links to the project – they are both listed as producers.
