Army of Winterfell

Damn right! The Battle Of Winterfell, the longest episode of the eight season of Game of Thrones is full of guts, bones, blood and finally, glory. ‘The Long Night’ is when the entire Westeros (of course except Cersei and her followers), go to war with the Army of the Dead. And boy, what a war it was.

Dothraki heading into the night
The War Begins

The third episode starts where the second left off, with everyone preparing themselves for the battle that is about to come. The entire army at Winterfell is waiting with baited breath for the Night King and his army to emerge from the winter darkness. However, before the dead arrive, Melisandre reaches the troops and lights up their swords to prepare them for the battle. The entire Dothraki clan, charged by the flaming swords, head into the darkness to fight the dead. But before anything could happen, the flames die out and few soldiers that were left ‘alive’ are seen running back. And then, ‘the long night’ finally begins.

The dead are relentless and the living fight as hard as they can. There is fire and dragon glass, crunching bones and spewing blood, bodies falling and bodies rising. And in the midst of all this, there is an epic fight between the dragons – a fight between ice and fire!

Fight of the Dragons
Fight of the Dragons

Dany and Jon, along with their dragons get blinded by a snowstorm, tussle with trees and then rise above clouds, waiting for the Night King and his dragon to arrive. On the other side, the troops fall back and Melisandre once again comes to their rescue by lighting the trenches. But does it stop the dead army? Only momentarily.

Swords light up!

How do you really kill something that is already dead? The dead aren’t scared of dying and that’s why they don’t stop. The dead army finds its way inside the castle with skeletons climbing on top of other skeletons, eating and clawing their way through anything and everything living. The living, on the other hand, are tiring out and scrambling to fight for their lives. And then the dead giant enters, crunching and killing everything in vicinity including the fiesty Lyanna Mormont. But before the giant could crush her completely, she stabs his eye with a dragon glass blade. Way to go!

Arya Stark becomes the warrior that she was training to be. Slashing, ripping and stabbing – she works her way around the dead. But when the size of the dead army chasing her keeps on increasing, Clegane and Beric Dondarrion, come and save her. In the process, Beric (the eye-patched guy who got multiple lives) finally dies. Arya and Clegane bump into Melisandre who reminds her of her destiny – “killing brown eyes, green eyes, blue eyes..”.

What do we say to the God of Death?
What do we say to the God of Death?

Outside the walls, Jon and Dany are going to great lengths to kill the Night King and his White Walker dragon. Jon’s dragon is finally able to bring the White Walker dragon down, but loses its life. With both Jon and the Night King down on the ground, and Dany still on the dragon, it seems like this is the end of the King. Dany looks at the Night King, smiles and says “Dracrys”.

The dragon aims his fire directly at the Night King but does he die? Uh-oh! He is unharmed. Jon hurries after the King in an attempt to kill him, but obviously that infuriates him. Turning around, he raises the entire body of dead (the entire Winterfell army) and turns them into White Walkers. Take that, Jon Snow.

Dany swoops in to save Jon and lights up the entire army of the dead so that Jon can head in and save Bran. Inside the castle, Theon and his troops are bravely defending Bran from the multiple skeletons finding their way to him. Jon rushes inside the castle, fighting the dead along the way. The dead have finally made their way inside the crypt, where Sansa, Tyrion and others were hiding safely.

Outside, the body count is rising and the White Walker dragon is searching for Jon. Ser Jorah is fighting to keep Dany alive and safe from the dead as her dragon took off with the dead clinging on to him for their lives (or not!).

The Night King finally reaches Bran as the only person left guarding him now is Theon. In a last attempt to save Bran, Theon charges at the Night King who nonchalantly, kills him.

“You are a good man, Theon”

Just as the Night King is about to take his sword to kill Bran, and the White Walker dragon is about to kill Jon, and the army of the dead is becoming too much to bear for the living, Arya charges towards the Night King. He turns around and hold her by the neck. Arya drops her dagger from her raised hand, catches it in her other hand, and sticks it into the Night King. And that is how, the Night King and his army finally die.

Jon, Dany, Brienne, Jamie, Tyrion, Sansa, Bran and Arya live to see another day and fight another war. The dead fulfilled their prophecies and their duties – Jorah Mormont: saved his queen; Theon Greyjoy: saved Bran and got redemption; Lyanna Mormont: killed the giant and died like a hero; Melisandre: served the God of Light and showed Arya the way; Beric: saved Arya and fulfilled his destiny; Dolorous Ed: saved Samwell Tarly.

The trailer of the next episode promises to start another fight – the final fight. Who will win the final war? Who will sit on the Iron Throne? Is Dany or is Jon the rightful heir to the throne? We can only wait and watch.

Till then, keep saying ‘No’ to the ‘God of Death’.

Jon Snow Finally Knows And We Can’t Keep Calm

Spoilers Galore: Reader discretion is advised!

Winter is finally here with the eighth season of Game of Thrones. Fans have been eagerly waiting for the last installment of this series, and boy, the first episode lived up to all that people were hoping for. Every scene from the episode brought something new, and we’re here to break it down for you. So, hold your dragons.. err, horses!

The Reunions

Picture Credits: epicstream
Jon and Danaerys

The episode starts with a lot of reunions. Well, everyone is here at Winterfell – the Starks, the Lannisters, the Targareyns, and even the Tarly 😉 Jon Snow finally met Bran (it was pretty sweet), Sansa met Tyrion (a very smart encounter, especially with Sansa holding the upper hand), and Danaerys met Sansa (“Winterfell is yours, my grace”). But the best reunion of all was that of Jon and Arya – checking out each others’ swords with Arya downplaying how many she had killed with the Needle; and reminding Jon that family comes first.

Cersei And Her Sinister Plans

PC: Game of Thrones
Cersei Lannister

At the other end in King’s Landing, Cersei is delighted to learn that the Army of the Dead has broken down The Wall and are marching south. What’s more, she finally gave in to the persistent demands of Euron Greyjoy and slept with him who is insistent of putting a prince in her belly (P.S. she is already pregnant with Jamie’s child). Was it because she was missing Jamie? Or was just to keep him close and not abandon the last support she had? We’ll only know in future episodes. To make up for her disappointment in her brothers, Cersei puts a bounty on both her brothers’ heads. Yep, Jamie included. And how does she want them to be killed? With the same crossbow that Tyrion killed their father. Sweet poetic justice!

The Greyjoys

Side note: Yara Greyjoy is well and alive (while still in Euron’s captivity). But not for long. Theon, who finally found his own in the last season, comes on board and rescues Yara (also, gets a punch for abandoning her last season). All said and done, Yara was overjoyed and gave Theon her blessings when he decides to go north and fight for the Starks.

The Dragons Know

PC: onlinetv
The Dragons

At Winterfell, the dragons are scaring the shit out of everyone. The Mother of the Dragons on the other hand, isn’t getting the respect she wanted. The Lords who pledged their allegiance to Jon and declared him the King in the North are not very willing to accept a Targareyn queen. Sansa, who had been trying to keep her cellars full for the upcoming winter, doesn’t know how to feed an entire Unsullied army and the Dothraki. Also, “what do dragons even eat?” Apparently, anything they want! Danaerys is worried that her dragons aren’t eating enough. So, she takes Jon to meet them (why?!). It is a known fact that only the Targareyns can ride the dragons. How did Danaerys then not question Jon’s ability to climb on Rahegal’s back and ride him in the cold North?! Looks like even the dragons know!

The Meeting With The Tarly

Danaerys meets Samwell Tarly, the man who cured Ser Jorah Mormont and wants to thank him. Unfortunately, the meeting ends when Sam realises his family is dead. Why? ‘coz they refused to bend the knee to the Queen. Hence, they were killed by dragon fire! Depressed and looking for an escape, Sam runs into Bran, who has been waiting for ‘a friend’. Last season, Sam and Bran figured out the true lineage of Jon Snow. Putting two and two together, they realised that Jon is actually the legitimate son of Lyna Stark and Rhaegar Targareyn. Bran now pushes Sam to tell his long-time friend Jon, his true destiny.

Jon Snow Knows

PC: Daily Express
Jon in the crypt

Sam is overjoyed to meet Jonin the crypt. However, their happiness is limited. Samwell informs Jon about the demise of his family and blames Danaerys for the same. While questioning whether she is the right choice for the throne, he tells Jon his true parentage. “You are the true king. Aegon Targareyn, sixth of the name, protector of the realm, and all of it.” Jon is almost furious. “My father was the most honourable man I knew. You are telling me that he lied to me?”. Samwell then explains that Ned Stark’s sister took an oath from him to always protect Jon. If King Robert had know that Jon was a Targareyn, he would have killed Jon, just like he intended to kill Dany. After hearing the truth, Jon is completely torn. Will he ascend the throne as the true King? Or will he let his feeling for Danaerys dictate the future of the Seven Kingdoms?

The Night King Signals

Tormund Giantsbane is alive! He, and a few others, including the Beric Dondarrion, find Lord Ned Umber (a child, at most) stuck to the wall with limbs surrounding him. He was left there by the Night King and had become a part of the Dead Army. His sudden shout was enough to wake people from the dead. Thankfully, he was burn by Beric and his fiery sword.

One More Thing…

PC: Vanity Fair
Jamie Lannister

The last scene of the show sees a cloaked man atop a horse, arriving in Winterfell. The big reveal? It’s Jamie Lannister. If you remember, he left Cersei in the last season, when he realised that she only promised her armies in the North to thwart of her enemies. She didn’t really intend to keep her word. While Jamie gets of the horse, who is the first person he sees in Winterfell? Bran Stark – the same boy whom he pushed off the tower and crippled for life.

There were a lot of reunions, some breakthroughs and a lot of groundwork laid for the upcoming episodes. Jon finally knows his true parentage, Danaerys knows that one of her dragons is now a part of the Dead Army, Jamie knows that Bran is alive and well, and well, Tyrion knows that Jon and Danaerys are sleeping together. What’s going to happen next? We’ll find out next week.

Till then, prepare for winter!

Facebook’s Secret Plans To Interconnect Messenger, WhatsApp, & Instagram

If you haven’t been on social media lately and are feeling a little disconnected, do not worry. This could well be a thing of the past. Because despite being in the middle of a privacy scandal, Facebook is working on integrating WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram. This move has been initiated to create a solid messaging experience for all.

via GIPHY

The three have been functioning as independent entities so far, more like competitors. But not anymore. As reported by the New York Times, major plans are underway to integrate them.

Facebook’s secret initiatives

Facebook has always been on a mission of bringing people together building communities, and fostering friendships. So it’s no surprise that it is taking a step further and is now planning to enable cross-messaging between Facebook Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp as revealed by the NYT.

via GIPHY

Users will enjoy end-to-end encryption so that they can communicate with those not present on other Facebook platforms within the company’s ecosystem itself. Although Facebook has not specifically revealed the timeline for this, rumour mills have confirmed that it will definitely happen.

Also Read: Facebook’s new feature to help blind users

People are all for messaging these days, and social messaging has obviously become the norm, more common than calling itself. It therefore won’t be surprising at all to see people welcoming this kind of an initiative.

Competition with Apple & Google

Facebook is certainly hoping that people will hop on to this merged system as their primary mode of messaging leaving behind Google’s messaging services and Apple’s iMessage. At a time when competition is stiff and the growth is slow, Facebook’s chief executive Mark Zuckerberg is apparently hopeful that its billions of users will stay connected and engage within Facebook’s own ecosystem and move away from competitors like Google and Apple.

Would it help?

So how would this help us? Well, if you are on Messenger and want to contact someone who’s only on WhatsApp, the integration will allow you to contact this person regardless of whether they use Facebook Messenger or not. Although the plans are still in a very nascent stage, the integration is expected to happen by end of 2019 or in early 2020.

via GIPHY

There is no denying that some other super-app might emerge till then rendering the whole integration effort futile. And who knows, Facebook might just take over that one too. This will help position itself stronger into the game. The possibilities can be many, but what’s good for users is the fact that all apps will incorporate end-to-end encryption as ordered by Zuckerberg to ensure that messages are protected at all costs.

A statement released to CNBC by a company spokesperson on the condition of anonymity in this regard, states:

[Facebook wants to] build the best messaging experiences we can; and people want messaging to be fast, simple, reliable and private. We’re working on making more of our messaging products end-to-end encrypted and considering ways to make it easier to reach friends and family across networks.

Facebook spokesperson

As always, only time will tell if this integration is as promising as it seems to be.

Celebrities Who Look Like Other Celebrities. We Can’t Believe This

Most doppelganger myths are anything but heartwarming. Finding humans who look exactly like you is thankfully not a bad omen. It’s even more amusing when someone in the spotlight has someone looking just like them. Check-out these celebrities who have “twins” from other parents.

1. Thandie Newton and Zoe Saldana

If you ever come across these two in the same room, you can forgive yourself if you get their names mixed up. The two famous women have so much in common (they look like photocopies of each other), even Victoria Beckham fell prey to the confusion!

2. Mila Kunis and Sarah Hyland

Mila Kunis & Sarah Hyland

Mila Kunis remained the undisputed ruler of the ‘Jackie-look’ ( quoting ‘The 70’s show’). Well, that was until Sarah Hyland came along. The modern family star, shares so much resemblance with Kunis, ranging from facial features to even body type! Seriously, Wassup nature?

3. Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel

We’re really wondering if the two are long lost sisters. The picture speaks for itself here. Damn right!

4. Jada Pinkett-Smith and Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana has another twin y’all. Honestly, they look so much alike, its difficult to comprehend how they aren’t related. Save for minor differences in skin tone and jawline, they look just the same!.

5. Liam Hemsworth and Karen Khachanov

A world with two Liam Hemsworths…yes , it’s a good time to be alive. Tennis pro Karen looks like Liams lost twin brother.

6. Will Arnett and Patrick Wilson

The Insidous and Conjuring franchise star has found resemblance to Canadian-American actor Will Arnett. This would be a tough one to see through at parties, with or without the help of spectacles.

8. Julie Bowen and Elizabeth Banks

Both actresses are seen in Modern Family.They’re not related though, on the show. Yet… Probably.

9. Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer

Looks like nature likes to make repeat models of good genes. One is Superman, the other,, a television heartthrob. We’re liking where this is going.

10. Jennifer Lawrence and Bella Hadid

Is it makeup, genes or attitude? We’ll never know. Except for the fact that Jennifer Lawrence looks a helluva lot like Bella Hadid and vice versa.The two should be cast in a twinsies thriller, that would be good eh?.

11.Isla Fisher and Amy Adams

Isla Fisher & Amy Adams

Save for the difference in eye color and demeanour, Amy and Isla are replicas of each other. Even Lady Gaga mistook Isla for Amy reportedly.

12.Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley

Natalie is one of the most loved actresses in Hollywood. Keira is a groundbreaking British actress whose claim to fame was her acting talent. Who would’ve thought the two resemble each other so much? A pleasant surprise in itself and something that’s delightfully amusing.

13. Margot Robbie and Jaime Pressly

Margot Robbie & Jaime Pressly

Well well well, like one Harley Quinn wasn’t enough to set the world on fire. Jaime Pressly and Margot Robbie, seriously, y’all should be related some way or the other right?.

We are not sure if it’s a red-head thing or not, but these two look dreadfully alike. Jurrasic world star Bryce seems like Golden Globe Awar winner Jessica’s long lost sister.

Sophie Turner Was Not Allowed To Wash Her Hair In GoT

Sansa Stark is currently breaking the internet. HBO’s clip showing the Lady of the North and The Mother Of Dragons, meet was one very viral ten second clip. Turns out, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa on Game of Thrones did a great many things to fit into Sansa’s shoes. That includes, going without washing her hair for months at a time.

The Hair Nightmare

In a candid interview with Instyle, the Game of Thrones star shed light on how much she had to do to be ‘Sansa’. Speaking of which, most characters on GoT, save for Khaleesi and Cersei, showcased a greasy hairdo throughout. With a story set in the backdrop of the middle age, Sansa sported really greasy hair during her trials on Game of Thrones.

Sansa Stark(Sophie Turner)

For the first few seasons I was allowed to wash my hair because I was an aristocratic young girl, but toward season five they started asking me to not wash my hair, and it was really disgusting.

Sophie Turner

Relief finally…

Sophie was 13 years old when she first played the role of Sansa in Game of Thrones. Turner, 22 now, recollects her horrific hair routine for the role. A natural blonde by birth, Sophie had dyed her hair red to play Sansa. Not washing her hair, artificial snow getting stuck in it, and continually dying it red, had caused a lot of hairfall. Thankfully, she now gets to wash her hair whenever needed.

Now I wear a wig, so I can wash my hair whenever I want, which is nice. But yes, for a couple of years I was living with pretty greasy hair.

Sophie Turner

Turner’s going places!

Along with the immensely popular character of Sansa, Sophie has also played Jean Gray in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) and Vida in The Thirteenth Tale (2013) . She has also made appearances in Barely Lethal and Another Me. The actress seems to be growing leaps and bounds in her career as of now. She is also the face of Wella Professionals.

The biggest thing is WellaPlex. It’s a hair mask that you put on, leave in for 10 minutes, and then wash out. It repairs the bonds in your hair so that it doesn’t just feel strong and healthy, it actually is stronger and healthier afterward. I use it every week, because with the job I have, it’s a lot of dyeing, straightening, curling, and heat damage. I’ll put in on after showering, watch a bit of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and then I go back and wash it off.

Sophie Turner to Glamour

Sophie’s life right now

In fact, Turner owes the replenishing and repairing of her hair condition to the good hair products she used. Currently, (thanks to the wig) Sophie sports, Icy Beige Blonde hair; a Koleston Perfect hair dye result. The dye is known to give lasting color and vibrancy.

Netflix’s Shocking New Crime Series Will Leave You Speechless

Abducted In Plain Sight is a Netflix Original Documentary series. Revolving around the life of Actress Jan Broberg; the chilling narrative has sent the world into a horrified state.

Robert Berchtold and Jan Broberg
Robert Berchtold and Jan Broberg

The documentary shows the kidnapping of young Jan by a family friend called Robert ‘B’ Berchtold. What’s chilling about this is the fact that the man had kidnapped her twice in her lifetime. Well, if you thought that was shocking, here’s where it gets worse. Post the incident that left Jan traumatized, her parents remained passive about the entire thing and chose not to speak to anyone about it.

The Plot

Set in the 1970’s, Paedophile Robert ‘B’ Berchtold befriended the Broberg family. Little did the family know what his true intentions were, until years later. What is morbid about the entire episode is how the child’s parents turned a bind eye to what was obviously taking place right in front of their eyes.

via GIPHY

Jan Broberg was a little above 10 years of age when Berchtold met her. Ignorant of his sexual advances towards her, the child wandered into the predators trap much like a fawn with no protection.

Turns out, Robert was quite the manipulator and used dirty tricks to earn Jan’s parents’ trust. He was their handyman, as they call it now.

Upon Jan going missing for the second time, her parents finally took legal action. The predator however had a trick up his sleeve. Unfortunately, both Jan’s mother and father had entertained an affair with Berchtold. The man cleverly used this to blackmail them into withdrawing their complaint on him.

The plot gets worse

It just gets weirder folks. The documentary shows a now adult Jan Broberg, horrifically recollect the gory abuse she suffered. Upon turning a teenager, she said, Robert even built a wooden wall in the room for her, seperating her mother and her. Jan’s mother was seen crying at what took place.

The man slept in the same bed as young Jan for months. He did this right before abducting her. Apparently, he tricked the parents into thinking that he’s taking her horseback riding.

YouTube

Okay now, brace yourselves. Robert even convinced Jan, that she needs to have his baby when she turns sixteen. Failing which, it would result in the loss of her sister’s eyes and destruction of the world. He manipulated the child into thinking she was abnormal, and that, aliens were watching her.

The world reacts

The stupefying series has left quite a few around the globe, stunned, shocked, disgusted, angry and what not! One twitter user summed up her entire experience of watching this in a tweet.

Started watched Abducted in Plain Sight on Netflix and I literally had to press pause and take a break. I can’t believe these people who were so mind fucked by a dude who wanted to marry their 12 year old daughter. It’s sickening; the shit he does to get to her.

fresita on Twitter

Some even hailed it as an informative watch regarding the extent paedophiles go to for a child.

@Netflix For those on the fence about R. Kelly, you need to watch “Abducted in Plain Sight”. It is a Netflix documentary that depicts in great detail the lenghts a PEDOPHILE will go through to get a child and their M.O. #muterkelly #Netflix #PEDOPHILE #abductedinplainsight

Steve-O Snorts HIV Positive Blood Stained Coke, Lives To Tell Tale

Jackass sensation and television star, Steve-O has definitely had one helluva life. He has been in and out of prison quite a few times. From public obscenity to smuggling drugs, Steve-O has done it all. The 44 year old has recently even admitted to snorting HIV blood stained cocaine. Whoa!

Steve-O

Steve-O opens up

In a candid interview on In-Depth with Graham Bensinger, the actor revealed just how desperate and difficult his time as a drug addict was.
Steve spoke of how his mother was an alchoholic and how he would get to booze often during New Years parties at home

The star had his first drink at a very young age. He said that, though his mother was an alchoholic and his father never stopped him from drinking during festivities, he holds himself responsible for all his addictions.

Steve’s Drug Problem

The actor then opened up about his journey as a drug addict. Turns out , his drug dealer lived very close to where he was living. He calls him ‘Everything’. Steve said that he’d often call the man and ask him what he’s got to sell, to which the dealer would just say that he’s got everything. Hence the name.

Sometimes when the dealer didn’t pick up his call, Steve said he’d just drop by the man’s place to take his stuff. One fateful day when he was at the brink of utter desperation, ‘Everything’ did not pick up his call. The actor as usual, just went over to his place and picked up his stash of drugs.

The Blood Coke

Steve mentioned that the drug dealer was not just a dealer but a drug user too. He recollects a gory picture of how the man would inject cocaine into his system by means of a syringe.

YouTube/In-Depth

Sometimes, he said, ‘Everything’ would pass out post a drug session. This was one of those days. The man had passed out, leaving his front door wide open. Steve unfortunately saw the man and even tried to wake him up.

Post unsuccessful attempts at waking him, the actor noticed a residue of the drug on a table nearby. Even though he saw the blood spots on it (blood squirts when using the injection method), he scraped it up and snorted it.

This is how just desperate and pathetic my addiction was.

Steve-O

A now sober and fully recovered Steve sat up grateful and happy that his past experience is over. As for HIV scare, Steve seemed sure he didn’t contract any of it.

Kylie’s hilarious response

She seems to be strolling in mid-day sun , carrying a very brown egg. Kylie then squats to the ground and touches it checking the surface temperature, cracks the egg and lets it cook under the naked sun’s heat.

Jonah Hill’s Only Liked Tweet Is A Massive Self-Burn

Hollywood ace Jonah Hill has certainly had the most spectacular claim to fame. Right from his Superbad days to Netflix’s mind wrecker, Maniac. Jonah has turned heads worldwide with his performance and personal transformation.

Recently, his movie, Mid 90’s is making tidal waves in tinsel-town. Written and directed by him, the movie appears to be a representation of his experience as a child. Funnily enough, the man has so far only one liked tweet on his microblogging site.

Self-Burning at its best

The tweet was from New York Times’ Kyle Buchanan. Well, it’s no surprise that Jonah loves to parody things, and the list includes himself!. Take a look at the tweet.

Kyle was seen praising actress Emma Stone in his tweet. He took a subtle dig at her co-stars on their inability to complement her on-screen presence. Here’s what he said:

Emma Stone is such a robust, emotionally generous actor and the men she’s so often cast opposite… aren’t

Kyle Buchanan

Jonah Hill starred alongside Emma Stone, during his early twenties, in Superbad. He played a smart and quirky, chubby teen. Desperate to land at least a kiss with the hottest girls of his class, Jonah and his two other accomplices in the movie land themselves in a huge load of hilariousness.

The connection

The movie struck a chord with many. In particular, Jonah’s robotic response to Emma got much attention now, thanks to Kyle’s tweet. There’s a lot to say that Kyle may have been hinting at Jonah.

Emma Stone has been in the lead in movies quite a lot, ranging from Easy A to The Amazing Spiderman. She does have an impressive list of leading male co-actors she was cast alongside. Speculations are that, Kyle may have hinted at the entire list of actors or just quirky ol’ Jonah Hill. We don’t know for sure yet.

What is definitely funny and amusing though, is the fact that Hill has liked just one tweet, in his entire twitter-life. And oddly enough, it is this one. Maybe he likes a good joke on himself. Or maybe, he is just appreciative of his co-star Emma Stone. Well, whatever the reason, the world just can’t help but giggle at how Superbad Jonah actually is.

Jonah’s transformation

Speaking of physical transformation, Jonah has really turned the tables upside down. The actor is no longer the cute and chubby teen he used to be. Starring now in Maniac, Jonah plays a grown man who has a depersonalisation-derealization disorder. Honestly, if you did not know Jonah Hill, you’d think its a completely different person.

Wowing the world a second time, Hill revealed his new look for the movie
Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot.The movie is a biopic based on the life of John Callahan.

Many took to Jonah’s instagram post to comment on how he looks like the Christ. Sporting shoulder length blonde hair and a pair of ultra blue eyes, Hill seemed to strike a resemblance not just with Christ but also the likes of Kurt Cobain and Thor’s older brother.
