Remember when Jonah Hill got all skinny for a year or so and didn't look like himself? It was almost like he was anemic or had an eating disorder. Either way, skinny Jonah wasn't funny, and though I had a tough time sitting through all three hours of The Wolf of Wall Street and Hill played a character the audience was meant to despise, he was back to his old self, a bit pudgy, stocky, and recognizable.

Still, while Hill's foray into skinniness didn't do so much for his acting career (he's at a much healthier weight now than when he started out, however) I always thought it was in response to the way a certain Oakland A's assistant general manager responded to the casting of Hill. The characters in the film Moneyball are real people and their stories are mostly real, with the exception of Hill's character Peter Brand. That guy is 100 percent fictional, in name, appearance, and method.
