Watch: Jonah Hill Parodies Spike Jonze's 'Her' on 'Saturday Night Live'
Over the weekend, Jonah Hill hosted "Saturday Night Live," and it's worth checking out since a certain star from The Wolf of Wall Street shows up to poke fun at one of his most iconic roles. But other than that, there was this spectacular parody of Spike Jonze's Best Picture nominated film Her, featuring Hill in Joaquin Phoenix's role as Theodore Twombley. Thankfully, rather than going the obvious route and doing a parody called Him (which has been done countless times online already), they've turned the film into Me, where Hill just falls in love with himself. And stick around for an awesome, surprise guest star at the end.
Here's the parody of Spike Jonze's Her from "Saturday Night Live" with Jonah Hill (via NBC):
Set in LA, slightly in the future, Her follows Theodore Twombly, a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet Samantha, a bright, female voice, who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other. Written & directed by Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Where the Wild Things Are). Warner Bros. released Her everywhere on January 10th.

I'm in Korea too. Can't watch it. I like how content creators go to the extreme to make sure they get 100% no exposure overseas.

"The future's weird." "Yeah super weird." Probably sums up what 90% of people who saw the trailers for Her were thinking.
