Jonah Hill: I need a day off

Jonah Hill

Jonah Hill says he's overdue for a day off work and plans to spend it getting up to no good after being inspired by cult classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

The Academy Award-nominated actor rose to fame following his brief appearance in Judd Apatow's The 40-Year-Old Virgin.

He's now carved a name for himself as an actor, producer, writer and comedian with movies under his belt like Judd's Knocked Up, Superbad and Get Him to the Greek.

Apparently a steady stream of work has Jonah craving some downtime.

The 29-year-old logged onto Twitter on Tuesday to vent about his desire for a vacation. In true form he made sure fans knew it wouldn't be a traditional holiday.

"I need a day off I think ill call Ferris up," he wrote.

Jonah was of course referring to John Hughes' coming of age film Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

The 1986 comedy follows the title character, played by Matthew Broderick, when he decides to skip school and spend a day getting up to no good in downtown Chicago.

Along the way, Ferris steals his friend's dad's Ferrari, dines at a fancy restaurant and crashes a street parade.

It doesn't look like Jonah will have a break anytime soon though.

The funnyman has several projects lined up through next year.

He's currently starring in fantasy comedy This Is the End, alongside Seth Rogen and James Franco.

Next up for the actor is Martin Scorsese crime drama The Wolf of Wall Street, followed by True Story, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Good Time Gang and 22 Jump Street.

Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
