Say it ain't so!
“I came out in comedies when I was first introduced to people, and very few people, like Tom Hanks and Robin Williams, have been able to transition. To have this kind of recognition -– it means I should do more dramas. I don’t know if there could be a bigger sign.”
“I’m making that the focus of my next couple of years," he shared the morning after the nominations were announced. Despite his massive success in comedies, he's actually a bit tired of doing them, continuing:
"As I mature, my sensibilities have changed. I think once you get to a certain place, your career is all about delegating time and what you want to spend your time doing. I’ve made a lot of comedies in a really short amount of time, and they’ve been ripped off every which way to Sunday. So it’s not as exciting to do those anymore.”
Jonah was "thrilled" to be offered a role in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, but due to scheduling issues, he couldn't join the cast.
That would have been a phenomenal follow-up to his Moneyball performance, but it sounds like he's got PLENTY of drama for us in the works. For those who love his sense of humor, it's on full display in the remake of 21 Jump Street!
We can't wait to see what this guy does next!
