Universal has recently acquired the script for The Best Thing About Pam Rooney, a "high-concept romantic comedy" that will apparently star Jonah Hill in the lead role. No real details yet on plot, but this casting news alone got me thinking about Jonah Hill's career thus far. I've enjoyed him, for the most part, as a supporting character to many other funny lead actors, but I wonder if I'll enjoy sitting through an entire romantic comedy centered around his role. It may come down to what the relationship is like between his character and the other romantic lead, but I'm a little bit wary nonetheless.
What do you think of Jonah Hill as the main man in a rom-com?
