1. Jonah Hill Jumps For A Laugh

Jonah Hill’s new movie, 21 Jump Street, is pulling in good reviews. The Jewish actor posted on his Twitter feed on Friday, “#21JumpStreet is 87% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes! It’s out in theaters RIGHT NOW! Go see it!”

21 Jump Street is a comedy based on the 1980’s drama of the same name starring Johnny Depp. The new movie hits theaters today and stars Jonah Hill alongside Channing Tatum as two young underachieving cops who are sent to a local high school in order to blend in and bring down a synthetic drug ring.

 

2. Out Of Luck

Dustin Hoffman’s television debut has been canceled. The Jewish actor starred in HBO’s new show, Luck, up until this week when it was canceled following an incident resulting in a horse dying on set. The show was already under investigation after two horses died on set last year.

PETA Tweeted on Thursday, “After 3 horses died on set, @HBO has announced that it is canceling Luck & ceasing all production on the series.”  Hoffman, the star of the show, has starred in dozens of movies, but Luck was his first television series.

 

3. Celebs Stand Against Kony 

From Josh Charles to Simon Helberg, several Jewish celebrities have been flocking to Twitter to voice their urgent opposition to Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, one of central Africa’s most violent rebel groups.

Josh Charles, the Jewish actor currently starring in The Good Wife, Tweeted, “You must watch this and get involved: http://bit.ly/xWfLJS #stopkony#april20th2012.”

Simon Helberg, the Jewish actor who stars in The Big Bang Theory, Tweeted, “Just watch the first few minutes and you will be swept up. I don’t ever say this but – please RT. http://bit.ly/xnOfBJ #stopkony.”

This Week’s Top Three Tweet-Worthy Events From Jews Who Make News

1. Ashton & Demi Headed For Divorce Court

Demi Moore is ending her marriage to Ashton Kutcher, she told the Associated Press Thursday. The two actors were married in a Kabbalah wedding ceremony in September 2005.

Moore, 49, and Kutcher, 33, have increasingly become tabloid fodder in recent months as rumors swirled about Kutcher’s alleged infidelity.

Kutcher tweeted about the divorce on Thursday saying, “I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is… http://bit.ly/sbz0Qa.”

 2. People’s Sexiest Man Alive List Includes Just One Jew

Bradley Cooper scored the coveted top spot on People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” list with nine other Hollywood hunks scoring honorable mentions.

However, actor Josh Charles was the only Jew to make the list. Charles joked about his new status via Twitter, “Guess I should put down this steak sub & hit gym.”

Currently starring in The Good Wife, Charles has also had roles in several films from Dead Poets Society to Four Brothers. Other celebrities on the list include Ryan Gosling, Joel McHale and Justin Theroux.

3. Jack & Jill Tumbles… Or Does It?

Even if no one is laughing in the theater, it looks like Adam Sandler will be laughing all the way to the bank! Sandler’s new movie Jack and Jill received a phenomenal mauling from critics when it opened last weekend, but it was a huge success as far as the box office goes.

Jack and Jill managed to open in the number 2 spot, with $26 million. Immortals came in first last weekend, raking in $32 million.

Larry King came to the rescue of his fellow Jew on Thursday when he Tweeted, “Forget the critics. Jack and Jill is a funny, funny movie. Al Pacino is hysterical. You’ll love it!”
