While promoting his upcoming memoir Yearbook, which is set to be released next month, the 39-year-old actor revealed that his longtime friend and frequent collaborator Jonah Hill reached out to him for advice after he was offered a role the 2009 movie Transformers: Rise of the Fallen.
Jonah, 37, would have appeared in the movie playing the college roommate of Shia LaBeouf‘s character.
In a new interview with The New York Times, Seth revealed that he encouraged Jonah not to take the part.
‘“I can see if Steven Spielberg’s calling you, asking you to do something, how that’s hard to turn down. You want to make a movie about fightin’ robots? Make your own movie about fightin’ robots. You can do that. That’s on the table now,’” Seth recalled saying to Jonah during the interview.
