We gotta say, Jonah Hill's been making some pretty impressive moves lately.

His first real turn as a dramatic actor came along as Brad Pitt's sidekick in "Moneyball," and he got an Oscar nomination for it. Then, after paying homage to his comedic roots with Channing Tatum in the hilarious "21 Jump Street," he jumped back into the fold of potential acclaim by landing a gig in Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street." Now, he's juicing up his resume even more with Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained."

According to Deadline, Hill has joined the in-production picture for an unknown role after having turned down an earlier offer to appear in the film due to prior scheduling issues.

While his part for the movie is as-yet-unknown, it is reportedly certain that he will not portray the character Scott Harmony, who loses his slave - Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife of central character Django (Jamie Foxx) - to Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).

Whatever the role might be, the film is sure to garner some attention, especially after Tarantino's wild success with "Inglourious Basterds." Between "Django Unchained" and "The Wolf of Wall Street," Jonah Hill's got a real shot at seeing his name on a few nominations lists again soon enough!

"Django Unchained" hits theaters on December 25, and a break-down of everything we know about the movie so far can be found right here.
