Jonah Hill’s The Sitter opens this week, and I’ll totally see it, because like I’ve mentioned before I’m an unapologetic Jonah Hill fan, especially when he’s starting epic beefs with Glee stars and roughing up Whitney Cummings. And while most of the current conversation about the new movie is whether Hill will make a worthy Elizabeth Shue replacement (cameo or GTFO!) I’m almost certain this new flick will be remembered as Fat Jonah Hill’s last stand.
This is particularly difficult for me to accept. I heart fat guy comedy. As far as I’m concerned Moneyball is one long-running “fat guy in a little coat” joke. So while I know comedian obesity shouldn’t be encouraged (RIP John Candy) I can’t help but be saddened by the loss. I’m not the only one. There’s a pretty decent Stay Fat Jonah Hill Tumblr that makes food jokes over Jonah Hill photos while encouraging him to pack the pounds back on. I’ve sprinkled a few in here. You’ll know them because they’re the ones signed “Stay Fat, Jonah Hill.”
Let’s kick things off with the finest recyclable “I’m excited!” GIF the internet has ever known. That move just won’t play for a skinny dude. Farewell, Fat Jonah. You’ll be missed.
