Jonah Hill is the latest thespian to transition behind the camera, joining famous friends like Seth Rogen and James Franco in making the switch from actor to director. It seems only fitting that the actor who got his big break in the coming-of-age high school comedy Superbad would make his directorial debut with a coming-of-age film of his own, based on a script he also wrote.

Formerly known as Arms and the Dudes, the first trailer for War Dogs starring Miles Teller and Jonah Hill has arrived, teasing a slight change of pace for The Hangover director Todd Phillips — well, not so slight. It’s still a fairly rowdy and absurd comedy with a crude streak, but this one is based on an unbelievable true story.

Last night’s episode of SNL felt a little unfocused, like it didn’t quite know what to do with guest Jonah Hill. However, when the sketches connected, they really connected, with the best of them truly utilizing Hill’s acting chops (he is a two-time Oscar nominee, after all). So it shouldn’t be too surprising that the high point for Hill came in a pre-filmed sketch — he’s funny in regular sketches, but he really shines when things get a little cinematic.

Jonah Hill returned to SNL this weekend, and while he doesn’t have any new films to promote (aside from his small part in last month’s Hail, Caesar!) until August, an appearance from Jonah Hill is always a welcome one.

It was over a year ago that the massive Sony hack revealed plans for a Jump Street-Men in Black crossover movie, and while it wasn’t entirely clear, we sort of assumed this would happen in 23 Jump Street. Interesting? Sure. Exciting? Well, maybe. With Phil Lord and Chris Miller busy prepping the young Han Solo movie, we’ve retained some healthy skepticism about this wacky crossover plan. But it looks like Sony has found a director to renew our optimism.
