Superbad star Jonah Hill has signed on for upcoming Ricky Gervais comedy This Side of the Truth. Gervais will play lead man Mark, who discovers he can lie in a world where only the truth exists. He uses his new found ‘superpower’ to woo Jennifer Garner’s character- a woman clearly out of his league (no matter how funny The Office was). Jonah Hill will play the neighbour to Gervais’ character.
The film is Gervais’ first effort at directing a feature film and has an expected release of 2009.
