Actors Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio first worked together in 2013, when they both received Oscar nominations for their work in the film. The Wolf of Wall Street. The duo reunite on Netflix’s Don’t look up, which gave DiCaprio the opportunity to try and turn Hill into a Star Wars fan.
even though Don’t look up does not revolve around the concept of space, Hill has revealed that despite DiCaprio’s strong-willed efforts to turn him into a Star Wars fan, it doesn’t work. Hill recently confessed that he doesn’t usually watch sci-fi movies or TV series. It was interesting to know after hearing this statement from Hill that he has decided to sign on to a project like Don’t look up, given that it’s supposed to be in the Science Fiction category.
Hill told W Magazine, “I used to have a rule: If it doesn’t happen or it can’t happen, then I just don’t care, because I’ll lose focus.” Don’t look up gave Hill the opportunity to immerse himself in a whole new world – or more literally, a new galaxy. However, it also gives DiCaprio a chance to finally give Hill to his loved one Disney Plus Star Wars Series, Mandalorian, a chance. Hill tried to see the show as a good college classic but ended up being extremely confused when he watched it.
Hardly anyone can try and enter franchise like Star Wars it’s set up like that, with lots of history and nuanced details dating back decades. Star Wars fans from the very beginning are still trying to piece together and re-evaluate certain storylines and timelines. Hill shared: “Leo made me watch Mandalorian when we are doing Don’t look up, and it was like, Baby Yoda was cute, but I just wouldn’t play because I didn’t know anything about it. “
With Hill and DiCaprio nominated for best actor and supporting actor for their work The Wolf of Wall Street, it goes on to emphasize what a real couple these two are. Off-screen, the two stars are also good friends and, as mentioned, had a chance recently reunited for director Adam McKay’s Don’t look up, which was released back in December. Although more disaster/horror tones are quite common in Don’t look up, the final film is still a dark comedy. even though Don’t look up could have more satirical and sci-fi elements, it’s still very much in reality.
Don’t look up has been described as an “inspirational metaphor for climate change.” The plot of the film is also rumored to be based on real events. Thus, history enthusiast Hill gets some of the best of both worlds, with one foot in the imaginary world and the other in perceived truth.
Don’t look up Now available to stream on Netflix and Star Wars saga is available on Disney Plus.
