OK! News: 5 Things You Didn't Know About Jonah Hill

That's right. Come October 22, it'll be 10 years since I Heart Huckabees opened in theaters and the world first feasted their eyes upon Jonah Hill, who was a scant 20-ish-year-old when the movie was filmed. His hair was also straightened for the role, but we'll let that one slide.

As Jonah has discussed in the past, the role of Bret in Huckabees came to him courtesy of the movie's star, Dustin Hoffman, whose kids were friends with the up-and-coming actor. So, thanks to Dustin Hoffman (one of many things we can thank Dustin Hoffman for) we now have Jonah to entertain us on the silver screen on a bi-yearly-ish basis. Especially this weekend, when he'll team up once again with the glorious Channing Tatum in 22 Jump Street. We can smell the bromance from here.

Jason Schwartzman, and Jonah. Good ol' Jonah. (Hint: Pay special attention to the 00:17 and 1:17 minute marks):
