Slightly.

Why would anyone hire Jonah Hill to be a babysitter? I don’t want to judge on appearances or anything, but he’s just got one of those faces that makes him look like he is always overwhelmed. When it comes to babysitters, I want someone who looks a little more like Daniel Craig than Jonah Hill. But that wouldn’t be very funny, so the producers of The Sitter went with Jonah Hill.

In the red-band trailer, Hill plays his normal goofy self, only this time he is responsible for the lives of small children, which is actually more sad than funny if you think about it. Nah. It’s still more funny.

The Sitter boasts a pretty awesome cast featuring Sam Rockwell, JB Smoove, and Method Man, but it would appear that Hill is the star of the show. Will his good intentions keep him out of trouble? Apparently not.

NOTE: For some reason, there is a little bumper preceding the trailer that’s pretty funny and shows a Jonah Hill that’s lost about 100 pounds. You won’t miss it, but it’s worth calling out.

Fans of the HBO comedy “Curb Your Enthusiasm” know that Larry David can do very little wrong. So it’s a no-brainer that this teaser will leave us all gasping for more. Not only does it give us a healthy helping of Larry David insanity (including, of course, a rolling-on-the-floor physical altercation), but glimpses of appearances be Paul F. Tompkins, Rich Sommer, and Michael J. Fox. Not to mention returning favorites like JB Smoove as Leon and Bob Einstein as Marty Funkhauser. I can’t wait for the new season, and neither should you. Where’s my check from HBO? OK, I’ll settle for free HBO.

Sorry, HBO yanked the video.i

Here’s our first good look at the havoc Larry David wreaks on the upcoming season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” In Season 8, the gang relocates to New York City because there’s really no place else like it. The city is dirty, it’s honest, and as Ana Gasteyer points out, it has ambient noise. All HUGE selling points this season. I’m a huge “Curb” fan but I have friends who cannot stand it. Whenever we get to arguing about the merits of the show, their chief criticism is always “not enough ambient noise.” Well, you can suck on an exhaust pipe now, haters. Season 8 will have ambient noise out the ass.

Sam Rockwell Joins ‘The Sitter’ For Jonah Hill’s Cocaine http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sam-rockwell-joins-the-sitter-for-jonah-hills-cocaine/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sam-rockwell-joins-the-sitter-for-jonah-hills-cocaine/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Sam Rockwell is in final negotiations to chase Jonah Hill all around town for his cocaine in The Sitter. David Gordon Green is directing the upcoming action-comedy about a babysitter who must evade drug dealers while taking care of three kids. It's like Adventures in Babysitting with more booger sugar and less Elisabeth Shue. JB Smoove, better known as Leon from "Curb Your Enthusiam," is also on board to play Rockwell's drug dealing partner. The script by Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka is supposed to be hilarious, and I can't imagine teaming Smoove and Rockwell together will hurt any of the scenes. The only element that might suffer is the logistics, as Jonah Hill has to run around a town all night. (ThePlaylist)

The other day I had the opportunity to speak with comedian and actor JB Smoove about his current and upcoming projects, his unique approach to stand-up comedy, and a way of life that he defines as “The Ruckus.” You may best know JB as Leon, Larry David’s ex-brother-in-law, from The Black family on “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” He’s gearing up to shoot the 8th Season of “Curb,” but JB’s also got several other projects poppin’ at the moment. Take a gander at our conversation below.

SJ: Tell me about this new show you’re hosting, “Russell Simmons Presents Stand-Up at the El Rey.”

JB: Anytime Russell Simmons calls you and tells you he’s doing something you gotta do it. This show could have been about cake. It could have been called "Russell Simmons Presents Birthday Cakes" and you gotta consider it. So Russell calls me up and says I’m doing this new show and I’d love for you to host it. The El Rey is a historic theater in the Wilshire District of Los Angeles. So I’m hosting the show. It’s a version of Def Comedy Jam. It’s young comics, comics from all over, and I’m just the captain of the ship.

SJ: Are these up and coming comics? Will we know some of the names?

JB: Mostly up and coming comics, which is great. Everybody killed it. Everybody murdered it, man. You notice how the world has changed? How bad words have become good words? They killed it. They murdered it, man.

SJ: So if we tune in we can expect a whole lot of killing and murdering.

JB: Killing and murdering, man. Verbal ass-whoopings. Comedians, that’s our thing. The worse condition we leave you in, the better. Comedians try to murder you, they try to kill you. They try to make you piss on yourself. We try to make you shit yourself. We are horrible. Comedians have bad intentions for a good audience. You make someone spit their drink out, that’s pretty common, but if you can make their whole bod break down. Murder ‘em, kill ‘em, they fall off their chair, they spit their drink out, piss on themselves, shit on themselves, and get thrown out the club. The full f*ckin’ monty, man.

SJ: What’s it like having Russell Simmons as a boss? Does he make it rain constantly?

JB: That dude is f*ckin’ loaded with cash. It would take you five days to rob that dude. Take this advice: always ride the coattails of the rich and famous. Russell Simmons could have done a show about Chlamydia and I would have done it.

SJ: Speaking about somebody with weight, are you working with Larry David on the 8th Season of “Curb You Enthusiasm?”

JB: You cannot get rid of Leon. You’d have to assassinate Leon to get rid of him. I’m looking forward to some new Leonisms, too. I’m looking forward to gettin’ in that ass.

SJ: You’re going to get into your character’s ass?

JB: I’m gonna get in Larry’s ass. I bring the ruckus. The ruckus will be brought this season, again.

SJ: Can you let us in on anything about the new season of “Curb?”

JB: Man, I don’t know anything. All I know is they’re shooting some in New York and some in L.A. I don’t know anything until I get to the set. I’m one of those guys that don’t like information until I get there. Larry’s pretty secretive. I know a little bit about nothing.

SJ: How was it working with the Farrell Brothers in their new film Hall Pass?

JB: Huge fans of those guys. Loved working on the movie with Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis. Had a ball doing it. And Stephen Merchant. What is that guy, like 6’9’’? Normally I’m the tall guy on set, this dude was like 6’9’’ or some shit.

SJ: Can you tell us some about your character in the film?

JB: I just play one of the homies. One of the friends. My name is Flats. I play Stephen Merchant’s brother-in-law.

SJ: What other projects do you have going on at the moment?

JB: I’ve got a ton of shit going on. A few other films I’m considering. Working on a few other shows. Doing my stand-up on the road. I’m just trying to pay Discover and Mastercard off. One thing you don’t want is motherf*ckers calling you the rest of your life.

SJ: Inception comes out next week and everyone is really excited for it. Are you excited to see it?

JB: Anything that Leo DiCaprio is in, I’m going to see that shit. They could combine his movies and I’d see that shit. The Inception of the Titanic. The boat could come back out the water and I’d see that shit. He’s got a cool-ass name.

SJ: In the movie, Leo’s character goes into dreams. If Leo went into your dreams, what would he find?

JB: Oh man, he’ll find some shit, man. The ruckus just flies in my body. He’ll go into my bloodstream and find that my ruckus level is high. I’m in the 90% range of ruckusness. The ruckus makes you thick skinned. You ever been to a petting zoo and rubbed a rhinoceros ass? His ass is like leather. That’s what the ruckus is.

So there you have it, everyone. The ruckus is like a rhinoceros ass. I want to thank JB for taking the time to speak with me. Be sure to look for him hosting “Russell Simmons Presents Stand-Up at the El Rey” Sundays at 11PM/10c on Comedy Central. The new season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” premieres next year on HBO.
