It Appears Jonah Hill is off his Diet

Actor Jonah Hill has struggled with his weight over the years. When we first saw the 31-year-old actor in some of his break-out films such as “Accepted” and “Knocked Up” he was a larger guy. In his first major role as Seth in the hit comedy film “Superbad” his weight stayed the same.

In 2011, Jonah joined the set of the critically acclaimed sports film “Moneyball” where he met actor Brad Pitt who helped coach him through a significant weight loss. Before the film, Jonah lost an impressive 40 pounds. He credited his weight loss to eating Japanese food and getting help from a nutritionist. Dan Newlin, an attorney in Florida, applauded Jonah’s weight loss at the time. He had said that changing his diet and understanding nutrition is what helped him to shed the weight.

Pictures of Jonah filming his new movie “Arms and The Dudes” clearly show the “Wolf of Wall Street” actor much heavier than he has been lately. It is estimated that he has put on nearly 70 pounds since filming “Moneyball”. I feel for the guy.

Another Jared Leto Joker Photo Emerges

On the heels of the official release of a photo featuring Jared Leto as The Joker, a fan has published a “spot shot” of the actor in makeup. This is the third photo and the second unofficial one. The new photo is taken from a profile and shows a near extreme close-up of the actor. His face is pasty white and the trademark red Joker lips are present. We cannot see any of the tattoos found in the official photo. It is also worth noting the gruesome mouth scars Heath Ledger sported are nowhere to be found either.

What do we learn from the new photo? Other than the image appears to be taken off a video monitor, not much. The Joker looks like, well, The Joker. Interestingly, Leto looks a lot less menacing in the bootleg photo than he did in the official. We shouldn’t infer too much from this though. Context is everything and there is absolutely no context for this photo image whatsoever.

For one, do not know if the image is of Leto in full makeup or not. Is he wearing the costume’s wig or not? Basically, we know very little based on the photo but we do know a lot more than we did six months ago.

Fans like Gianfrancesco Genoso (dino.com) know that, hopefully, new photos will show the actor in full costume. We could also wish for a release of video footage showing Leto performing as The Joker. That would be a real coup and something fans would love.

Netflix to Bring the World a Full House Sequel

Netflix really does deserve credit for pushing ahead with new online streaming content. Netflix seriously wants to challenge the status quo of cable television. Through offering programming via online streaming, Netflix may be able to do just that. The programs the DVD/Blu-ray mail order provider have made as given a green light to make perfect sense. With all the popularity of superhero films, a Daredevil series is definitely a good choice, according to investors like Boraie Development LLC.

Who at Netflix thought a reboot of the old sitcom Full House is going to move the subscriber numbers. Yes, Netflix will offer up 13 episodes of the new adventures of the Tanners. The sequel, dubbed Fuller House, is a go project. Ironically, the news about this series started as an April Fool’s Day prank. It wasn’t a prank. A Full House reboot/sequel is a reality.

A few of the original cast members are returning as regulars. Star John Stamos has agreed to appear in cameos. Whether or not Bob Saget returns remains to be seen.

Why would Netflix produce such an odd reboot? For one, the kids who grew up watching the series are older now and are in positions to be consumers. Online streaming might be a little “too new” for them.
