Jonah Hill's Oscar Nomination Wouldn't Have Been Possible Without Best Buy Employees
I don't know about you, but it was really hard for me to pay attention during The Wolf of Wall Street . Not because of the drug use, violence, or stripper scenes, though — because of Jonah Hill's fake teeth. On Thursday, Jonah Hill was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and finally spoke out about those frightening and blindingly white veneers he wore as Donnie Azoff in the movie. Getting Azoff's dialect down perfectly took some serious work, especially with his fake teeth. Hill said he couldn't exactly "go out to Starbucks" and speak to people just to practice.
Since nobody would talk to Hill on the phone, he came up with a wonderfully weird way to rehearse.
If only the salespeople in Honolulu knew that it was Jonah Hill rehearsing for an Oscar-nominated film on the other line, and not some weirdo with a lisp who was considering buying a computer one day and a refrigerator the next. However, Hill did promise to give a shout-out to all the Best Buy employees in his acceptance speech if he wins Best Actor in a Supporting Role — game on, Jacqueline Bisset.
