Do You Like the Idea of Jonah Hill as a Romantic Leading Man?


Universal has recently acquired the script for The Best Thing About Pam Rooney, a "high-concept romantic comedy" that will apparently star Jonah Hill in the lead role. No real details yet on plot, but this casting news alone got me thinking about Jonah Hill's career thus far. I've enjoyed him, for the most part, as a supporting character to many other funny lead actors, but I wonder if I'll enjoy sitting through an entire romantic comedy centered around his role. It may come down to what the relationship is like between his character and the other romantic lead, but I'm a little bit wary nonetheless.

What do you think of Jonah Hill as the main man in a rom-com?

I can appreciate a non-traditional looking guy in a lead romantic role but I wish it were someone else besides Jonah Hill. He's made a career out of being awkward, rude and gross and I think that will be hard to put out of mind.

I think it's great,I mean let's face it all men are not Brad Pit or George Clooney.but the leading lady shouldn't be a skinny super model.A few people come to mind.They should show more normal people on the big screen instead of super hot,flawless,perfect bodies,not all of America is Hollywood perfection.

I don't like it. Not be overly harsh, but a woman of his size and attractiveness would never be cast as the lead in a movie like this. Like the other commenters, I'm over the schlub getting the model girl.

I don't really see him as a romantic anything leading man. i feel bad saying that but I think it's just hard for me at least to see him that way.

I'm firmly in the camp that prefers him in smaller roles. Too much of him is just not a good thing. He gets really annoying...

I would refrain from saying any type of role is out of his league because he has come to surprise me. I went from detesting him to looking forward to what he does next. I would also like to see his female lead be an average girl because the average guy getting the girl with super model looks is tried and old, but I'm not saying it couldn't happen.

As long as it doesn't involve a girl who looks like a model falling for his sense of humor, then I can buy it. The key here is finding out who plays the female romantic interest.
