Jonah Hill (education)

Actor, Writer

Undergraduate Education: Drama

Hill studied drama at The New School. At The New School, he was involved in writing and directing different short plays, through this experience Hill discovered that he also had a strong passion for acting. Hill said, “I didn’t know how to speak to actors, and a lot of the actors would complain that my directions were very insulting. So I figured I would take an acting class to learn how I would want to be spoken to as an actor. I not only loved it, but I got the most positive feedback I’d ever received in my life for anything I’d ever done.” He also met Dustin Hoffman’s children around this time, Hoffman himself would later be instrumental in helping Hill advance his career as an actor.
