Costarring alongside Joaquin Phoenix in, Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot, Jonah Hill plays Donnie, described by IMDb as the dedicated and charismatic sponsor who runs a local 12-step meeting. The film itself is based on a true story and supposed to be absolutely fantastic. It currently holds a "Tomatometer" of 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, which, as most movie goers know, is not an easy score to pull off!
While we'd love to sit here and discuss whether the film is Oscar worthy, we can't help but be entirely distracted by one thing — Jonah Hill's transformation for the role! From his weigh loss to his blonde hair, he's hardly recognizable as the Seth from Super Bad we all know and love. Hell, he's hardly recognizable as Schmidt in 22 Jump Street and unlike Super Bad, that was only 2014. Yes, we realize people change, but, go ahead and take a look! You'll see what we're saying!
We're not the only ones completely shook (as the kids would say) by Jonah's transformation. The internet is basically losing their sh-t and can you blame them?! Jonah looks as if Kurt Cobain and Brad Pitt in Thor had a lovechild. Others share our Kurt Cobain sentiment, but have also suggested Jared Leto, Post Malone, or an Allman Brother — no specification of George or Duane.

"This summer... Jonah Hill plays a washed up Kurt Cobain in an alternate universe where he didn't die at 27" https://t.co/eIn9zoZPBy
1. This looks awesome 2. @JonahHill you look like an Allman brother, which is a compliment by the way, can’t wait to check this out!— Karen Morris (@karenmorris03) January 17, 2018
The jokes aren't entirely made in the best taste, but, hey! We imagine Jonah having a laugh. He doesn't seem like the type of guy to get wrapped up in other people's opinions of his appearance. Having played every role from the fat best friend to the drug-addicted businessman, to even the international arms dealer, Jonah's transformations are apart of who he is and we love him for it!
