“Jonah Hill wants it really bad!”
As reported by BeachGrit one week ago, the Hollywood funnyman and Malibu VAL Jonah Hill will play brawling, gambling, raising hell golfer John Daly in an upcoming biopic.
Daly, a mulletted good ol boy from Arkansas, now fifty-six, was a journalist’s dream during his nineties peak, dem smoked and pickled tonsils rarely out of form.
Some of his iconic lines,
“I believe nicotine plus caffeine equals protein.”
“I don’t think I’ve ever stepped into a gym – they won’t let me smoke there.”
“I will just put four or five extra packs of cigarettes in my bag and I will be fine.”
“Do I have to know rules and all that crap? Then forget it.”
“There are probably some things I could do to keep my flexibility up, but I’d rather smoke, drink diet Cokes and eat.”
“I was never able to have three of four beers. One’s too many, and ten just ain’t enough. Basically it’s the way I’ve been since high school.”
In a 2016 interview with Graham Bensinger, Daly said he drank somewhere between a case of beer and 40 beers a day and that if he got a bit of a roll, he could get on the turps for three months straight.
Anyway, Daly, has responded to reports Jonah Hill is gonna play him an upcoming biopic, in a piece to Instagram.
“Jonah Hill he wants it really bad and the way me and him have fluctuated with weight in our lives, and no disrespect to him, cause I love him, I love him an actor… he wants it bad and I think he’d be great.”
Why does Hill, a serious thespian, want it bad, y’think, particularly given his struggle with fake cocaine following his role as Donnie Azoff in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street?
Hill, you’ll remember, was hospitalised with bronchitis following the seven-month shoot. Even though the fake coke was vitamin powder, it didn’t matter said Hill ‘cause “if you ingest that much matter into your lungs, you will get very sick” and added, “It’s interesting pretending to be on drugs.”
