Jonah Hill isn’t a fan of ‘The Mandalorian’ despite Leonardo DiCaprio’s efforts to get his friend and frequent co-star hooked. Hill told W Magazine that he often didn’t watch sci-fi movies and TV series because “I had one rule: if it didn’t happen or couldn’t happen, then I wasn’t everything. just not interested, because I would. losing focus.” While directing Adam McKay’s Netflix satire “Don’t Look Up,” DiCaprio asked Hill to break his rule and try out the Disney Plus TV series “Star Wars.”

Hill seems like more of a fantastic guy, having recently fallen in love with “Game of Thrones.”
“‘Game of Thrones’ is so sick,” Hill said. “I know it’s hilarious, because I’m in 2012. I’m just watching three episodes at a time, like you would any show. But I forget it happened in time real and was like a cultural event. So I watched The Red Wedding, one of the three episodes I watched that night. I’m calling friends, like, ‘Oh my god, Robb Stark was killed, blah, blah, blah.” And they’re like, ‘Yeah, man. It was like the end-of-level “Sopranos” cultural event.
DiCaprio and Hill first starred together in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” which earned them Academy Award nominations for acting and supporting role, respectively. The two reunited for McKay’s “Don’t Look Up,” which is one of the most-watched Netflix original movies of all time. The film is now streaming worldwide on Netflix.
