Jonah Hill Tells 'Fallon' That He Bribed His Young 'Mid90s' Lead with Nutella!

Jonah Hill made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night (October 11) and revealed what inspired him to make his coming-of-age film, Mid90s, which is his directorial debut.

“I looked at my heroes, people like Mike Nichols and Barry Levinson – you only get one shot at a first film, one shot to ever make your first film,” the 34-year-old writer-director told Jimmy. “All these people there first film really came from the heart and it meant something to them. For me, I waited until I had something to say, and Mid90s is my heart. It’s my heart, that’s it.”

Jonah then revealed how sugar turned his 11-year-old non-actor Sunny Suljic into an acclaimed lead in the film.

“He’s unbelievable, he was 11 when we shot the film and I’ve never as a 34-year-old, 15-year career never had to strap a movie to my back and walk across the field,” Jonah expressed. “He’s 11, I literally kept him running on Nutella for the whole shoot. I figured out his drug of choice was Nutella.”
