Jonah Hill in Moneyball



For as long as there has been a Hollywood it’s been common practice for stars to change their names. Back in the golden age studios chose names for stars that they thought would market well, with little to no input from the stars themselves. The fact that name changes happened was fairly public knowledge. These days name changes are still quite common, though not always as well known. Many might not be aware that an actor like Jonah Hill, who is so well known, isn’t actually named Jonah Hill.

His name is actually Jonah Hill Feldstein, so he’s been using his middle name as his professional last name. Very shortly however, Jonah Hill will be the actor’s real name, as The Blast reports he has filed a petition to have his legal name changed to his professional name. The decision is likely one designed to simplify things like signing contracts, since technically Hill should be using his legal name to sign deals as both an actor and producer. It makes a certain amount of sense when actor Jonah Hill signs a contract, he signs it with the name that appears in the credits.
