Jonah Hill Explains the Origins of His Very Adult 6-Year-Old 'SNL' Character Adam Grossman!

Ahead of returning to host Saturday Night Live next week (November 3), Jonah Hill stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers last night (October 24)!

In spirit, the 34-year-old actor briefly chatted with Seth about the origins of his very funny 6-year-old recurring SNL character Adam Grossman.

Jonah revealed that the character was all thanks to a story Bill Hader shared: “In his hometown he went to Benihana and saw a kid, but he didn’t know if it was a 40-year-old man or a 6-year-old kid,” Jonah explained. “Bill started doing it as like a mafia Tony Soprano guy — and you were there — and then I started doing him as a Catskills comedian, like super hacky Catskills. And then you, Bill, and I stayed up all night writing it, and we were laughing, and it was one of the joyous memories of my life.”

Jonah also talked about how skateboarding impacted his life, the magazine he wrote for his film Mid90s and other memories of hosting SNL – Watch below!
