Jewish Actors to Watch in 2014


The ADG Awarda

1. Jonah Hill

Another Jewish actor who had a big 2013 was Jonah Hill, when the Los-Angeles-and-Feldstein-born performer received his second Academy Award nomination for his role in “Wolf of Wall Street.” But this year, in which he’ll appear in a Dave Franco-esque four projects, could be even bigger. In fact, Hill will appear alongside Franco in “22 Jump Street,” which he also produced. His voice will also be heard in “The Lego Movie” and “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” while his chubby punim will be seen alongside the other, older Franco (James) in the drama “True Story.” The film tells the true story of a journalist whose life becomes intertwined with an FBI most wanted murderer who leaves on the lam under the journalist’s name—which, for those with Jewdar, is Michael Finkel.
