Wiki

Jonah Hill Feldstein (born December 20, 1983), best known as Jonah Hill, is an American actor, producer, screenwriter, and comedian.

Hill was born in Mill Valley, California to a family that worked in the music business. His father, Richard, was a tour accountant for Guns N' Roses. Hill was raised Jewish and had a Bar Mitzvah. He attended The Center for Early Education, Brentwood School and then Crossroads School, in Santa Monica. After graduating from high school, Hill left California to attend school at The New School, where he studied acting.

While in college, Hill began writing his own plays and performing them in the Black and White bar in the East Village neighborhood of New York City. His plays developed a small following and helped him realize that his true desire was to act in films. Hill was befriended by Dustin Hoffman's children, Rebecca and Jake, who introduced Hill to their father. The elder Hoffman asked him to audition for a role in I Heart Huckabees, in which Hill made his film debut.
