Trash Talk: Jonah Hill Slams Matthew Morrison

Newly trim Jonah Hill is anggggggggry! Is he venting his rage at people for thinking he isn't funny any more because he lost weight?! Nope! (Okay well maybe he is but … at least not this time). Instead, Hill is furious with Glee’s oh-so-lovable, all-singing, all-dancing Matthew Morrison. How is even an inkling of ill will towards Mr. Schue even possible!? I’ll explain. While on Wednesday’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the Moneyball actor told a recent story about a run-in with Glee’s choral director and Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford, where he overheard the two studly gentlemen say his name as a "punch line" to a joke. And now, Jonah is not laughing. To combat his ego bruising, Hill gleefully called out the hip-gyrating, ballad singing Morrison out on national TV!
"I’m at some douchey Hollywood party that I have to go to for work and there all these lame actors there," he told Fallon. He then explained that he spotted Morrison and Crawford at the bash and decided to listen in on their convo.
"They don’t see me. I’m gonna get some scoop, I’m going to call this dude out. I’m going to bust up his conversation,” Jonah explained to Fallon. “I can’t really hear what’s going on, and I got my ear to the street. … And I hear, ‘Something, something, something, Jonah Hill!,’ and then they both start laughing. Matthew Morrison says that. … I’m the punch line in this guy’s joke!”
And then Hill goes after Morrison (still unclear if this is a bit or just some truthtelling): "Yo, Matthew Morrison, you better bring your sh** next time I see you dude. I’m calling dudes out on Fallon! I call dudes out on Jimmy Fallon!"
The Superbad actor then added, “I'd like to see him sing his way out of this one.” Once he composed himself, Jonah decided to back peddle, “I’m just kidding, you seem like a great guy.”
Yeah suuuuuuuure you think that Matthew Morrison is a great dude, Jonah. You still have no idea what was even said about you, Mr. Hill! What if the “lame actors” just said, “Guess who seems like a really great guy? Jonah Hill,” and then they both giggled with delight because the prospect of being friends with Jonah Hill was so delightful?? Or what if Matthew Morrison was like, "Guess who I want to guest star on Glee? Answer: Jonah Hill." And then the twosome laughed because Jonah Hill is such a super megastar that nabbing the likes of him seems preposterous. WHAT IF THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED, JONAH???? All of this trash talk could be for naught!
As far as I’m concerned Jonah Hill just sounds like a grumpy Gus who is probably jealous of Matthew Morrison’s tight and luscious curls.
What do you think? Is Jonah Hill being a jerk, or was he justified in calling Morrison out?
