Move over, Sue Sylvester -- Mr. Schuester has a new nemesis, and it's Jonah Hill! On Wednesday's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the Moneyball star called out Glee actor Matthew Morrison for being a big jerk to him at two different industry events. Watch the hilarious clip below -- but first, some background.
In the first part of the interview (available here), Hill talks about his awkward experience at the FOX upfronts (the annual event at which networks present their fall season to potential advertisers). Hill was there to promote his new animated series Allen Gregory -- but in a room full of established TV stars, he found himself standing around like "the new kid at FOX High School." He tried to approach American Idol judge Randy Jackson, only to get dissed for Bones actor Michael Clarke Duncan. Then he saw his high school pal Zooey Deschanel, star of New Girl, across the room. While they were chatting, a woman started giving instructions to the gathered stars. Hill stopped to listen, but says Deschanel was still talking.
"Zooey starts talking to me, and the woman (giving instructions) goes, 'Jonah, please be quiet while I'm talking,'" recalls Hill.
"And do you guys know this guy Matthew Morrison? He's on Glee?" Hill asks the audience. "This guy piggybacks on this woman calling me out -- I've never met this guy in my entire life -- he goes, 'Yeah Jonah, can't you stop talking for one second?' And everyone laughs. Everyone laughed at me! I wasn't even talking to anybody!"
"So I'm all shaken up about this," he continues. "And so I've already got it in my head that I don't like this guy; I'm sure he's a good human being, but you don't throw a dude under the bus that you've never even met before. He's a bully."
But it gets worse! Watch the clip below to see the end of the story.
So here's the conclusion: a couple weeks later, Hill was at "some douchey Hollywood party," when he spied Morrison talking to Gossip Girl actor Chace Crawford. He approached to try and eavesdrop on the conversation and ended up hearing the tail end of an anecdote -- "something something Jonah Hill!" -- and Morrison and Crawford burst out laughing.
"He doesn't even know I'm at this party and I'm the punchline of his joke?" Hill says incredulously. "Yo, Matthew Morrison, you better bring your s*** next time I see you! I'm calling you out on Jimmy Fallon!"
After challenging Morrison WWE-style, Hill jokes to Jimmy Fallon, "I'd love to see him sing his way out of this one!"
We must say, as celebrity feuds go, this one is pretty entertaining. The only question is: How will they settle it? Hill would be sure to lose a sing-off or a dance-off, so we'd suggest he challenge Morrison to a freestyle competition -- he's got to be able to rap better than Will Schuester, right?
