Superbad at 15: Jonah Hill ‘instantly hated’ Christopher Mintz-Plasse during audition, says Seth Rogen


According to Seth Rogan and Judd Apatow, Jonah Hill “immediately hated” Christopher Mintz-Plasse during the callback audition for Superbad.

ill played high school boy Seth, alongside Mintz-Plasse’s Fogell, in Greg Mottola’s 2007 teen comedy, co-written by Rogan and executive produced by Apatow.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, on the film’s 15th anniversary, the cast and crew reminisced about the original love between the co-stars.

“Jonah immediately hated him. He said, ‘That’s so in tune with my rhythm. I couldn’t perform with that guy,” Rogan explained.

Apatow added: “Jonah said, ‘I don’t like that guy. I don’t want him to do that. ‘ And I said, ‘That’s exactly why we hired him. It couldn’t be more perfect. The fact that it annoys you is exactly what we wanted. ‘”

Apatow recalled Mintz-Plasse acting “very well” during his third callback audition as he read with Jonah, adding that he “attacked Jonah and insulted Jonah”.

Director Mottola also remembers:[Mintz-Plasse] played it like he was clearly the coolest guy in the room and everyone else was a nerd and loser. He’s Dean Martin instead of Jerry Lewis.”

Hill later admitted: “Chris is really, really great. And I think he was really annoying me at the time.”

Upon release, the film became a box office success and received acclaim from critics and audiences alike.

Despite the success, there are no active plans to reunite the cast for a sequel, with Hill and Rogen expressing no interest in a sequel.
