Jonah Hill offers up his phone number for 'The Sitter'

So Jonah Hill is starring in this comedy called The Sitter, coming out in December, playing a slothful, reckless, frankly dangerous individual who inexplicably finds himself watching a group of children for the night.

And to help promote the film, he’s going to talk to you. That’s right you, bubba.

Call him — (917) 409-7838.

Go ahead, give it a try. It’s free (if you call from work). 

A rep for the film says Hill will randomly be answering calls, which kind of fits with his M.O. on Twitter, where he occasionally invites  followers to ask him anything for a certain window of time. Here’s how one exchange went down last Friday:

@JonahHill: Okay here we go! I’ll answer any good questions for the next two minutes! Go:

@The_Trout_Bum: “@JonahHill Want to come fly fish with me in Montana?” No thanks.

Let’s be honest though, you’re probably not going to get as lucky as The Trout Bum with this telephone thing, and actually reach Jonah Hill. Maybe he will randomly answer a few phone calls, but it probably won’t be you, so you can just stop bothering God with those prayers. But you’ve got to hand it to Fox for this marketing ploy. Of course you’re going to call anyway, and lots of people will hear a recorded message that’s kind of an ad for the movie. But folks will remember The Sitter and the marketing will have done its job.

If anybody does actually reach him, please let us know in the comments!

And though you go into it with measured expectations, well, what if he really does answer? What will you ask him? You don’t want to stammer and stumble all over your words. Plus, he’s a funny guy. QUICK, THINK OF SOMETHING FUNNY. Your heart is beating a little faster with each ring — once, twice, three times, so maybe it won’t go straight to …

“Hey, you’ve reached Noah Griffith.” (That’s his character from the movie.) “I’m not home. If you’re calling about a babysitting gig, please post a photo of yourself in something along the lines of a bikini or a toga or some sort of lingerie on my Facebook page, which is Leave a message!”

Damn, voicemail.

Told you so.

    That is cool. I want to ask him how much d**k he had to suck to get a career in Hollywood.

  • Noah Griffith

    Call me. Seriously. Don’t be ashamed if you’re a hot mom in need of a sitter.

    I’m not licensed, I don’t know CPR, but I can be at your place in a few hours. I’d be there faster if I didn’t have to sober up.

    Curiosity got the better of me, I had to call…It went right to voicemail.

  • Leah

    Just tried to call, straight to voicemail. Left a message though hahaha.

  • Kristen

    I just got his voicemail too=[

  • Chandra

    is it me or does this movie seem like a re-make of Adventures in Babysitting?

    • Ashley

      Yes it definitely is a remake of Adventures in Babysitting. And if not a straight out copy, at least a retooling. He has to go see a friend at a party/ rescue a friend, he gets sidetracked in a bar full of black people and has to bluff his way through it and I’m sure he’ll end up in another party and find himself or some nonsense

  • Lauren

    Ha, so awesome.

  • jesus arizmendi


  • eric johnson

  • Skyler

    I left him a message. It was the most awkward thing ever. I can’t even leave my family good messages. Fml.

  • Deshaun

    • britt

      I highly doubt doubt Jonah Hill lives in St. Lawrence county, New York, which is what that zip code is for.
