FILM: Jonah Hill's first starring role

Jonah Hill will finally be benefiting from his Apatow-connection. True, he has been mastering the art of the sidekick for quite some time since he first met the guy, but now he's going to be starring in his own film, Get Him to the Greek. The director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Nick Stoller, poached two actors from his last movie to star in this comedy. Along with Hill, who plays a "fresh out-of-college insurance adjuster," he's cast Russell Brand as--what he does best--an out-of-control rocker who needs to get to the L.A.'s Greek theater. If the film does well, which--no offense--I doubt it will, Hill could reach his own independent success.
