The funny man will put on his serious face for Quentin Tarantino’s latest.

Jonah Hill Cast in

As if there weren't enough reasons to get excited about Quentin Tarantino's next film Django Unchained (Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz as bounty hunters looking for slave owners, Leonardo DiCaprio as the evil boss, etc.), we now have news that makes this film even more intriguing.  Jonah Hill will have a role in the upcoming project in a role that has yet to be determined.  Here's the scoop from Deadline New York:

The Weinstein Company has set Jonah Hill to play a role in Django Unchained, which is in production. I’m trying to find out who he’ll be playing, but am told it won’t be Scotty Harmony, the kid who loses Django’s slave wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) to Calvin Candie, a charming but utterly evil plantation owner, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, which sets up a showdown with Django, the former slave turned bounty hunter played by Jamie Foxx.

Hill's only other venture into serious film was the Oscar-nominated Moneyball and even got him a nomination for Best Supporting Actor.  I like funny Jonah Hill as much as the next person, but I love to see actors stretch their limits and grow in their craft.  Hill has and will do plenty of comedy, but this is another chance for him to work on his dramatic chops with one of the best directors in the business.

Even though several big names have dropped out of this project (Kevin Costner, Kurt Russell, Sacha Baron Cohen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt) there are still enough big names to ensure that this will be another Tarantino classic.  Check out the trailer write-up here by Max Lin.
