If Shia LaBeouf was the breakout star of 2007, it looks like Jonah Hill is the next Hollywood breakout talent. Hill, who stole the show in Accepted and was just flat out hilarious in SuperBad is reportedly in negotiations to appear in the Transformers sequel. Hill will reportedly play the sidekick/comic relief to Shia LaBeouf’s character, Sam Witwicky.
Shooting for the sequel will begin this summer and the scheduled release for the movie is on June 2009. LaBeouf better be prepared or he might get upstaged by Hill.
