Leonardo DiCaprio Forced Jonah Hill to Watch ‘The Mandalorian’

Jonah Hill is not really a huge fan of “The Mandalorian” despite his friend Leonardo DiCaprio’s best attempts to have his co-star hooked. As revealed by Jonah Hill to W Magazine, he often does not watch science-fiction movies and TV series because “I used to have a rule: If it didn’t happen or it couldn’t happen, then I just wasn’t interested, because I would lose focus.” While filming Adam McKay’s recent Netflix satire “Don’t Look Up,” DiCaprio got Jonah Hill to break this rule, giving the Disney+ “Star Wars” series a try.

“Leo made me watch ‘The Mandalorian’ when we were making ‘Don’t Look Up,’ and it was like, Baby Yoda was so cute, but I just didn’t give a fuck because I didn’t know anything that it was about,” Hill said.

Jonah Hill appears to be more of a fantasy lover, recently loving the popular series “Game of Thrones.”

“‘Game of Thrones’ is so sick,” Hill said. “I know this is hilarious, because I’m in 2012. I’m just watching three episodes at a time, like you would binge any show. But I forget this happened in real time and was like a cultural event. So I watched the Red Wedding, as one of three episodes I watched that night. I’m calling friends, like, ‘Oh my god, Robb Stark got killed, blah, blah, blah.’ And they’re like, ‘Yeah, dude. It was like the end-of-‘Sopranos’-level cultural event.’”

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill initially starred together in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” which nabbed them an Oscar nomination for the Best Actor and supporting actor, respectively. The two yet again reunited for McKay’s recent Netflix hit “Don’t Look Up,” which has become one of the most-watched Netflix original films of all time. The movie is now streaming globally on Netflix.
