After Steven Soderbergh was unable to get Moneyball, a story about Oakland A's manager Billy Beane, off the ground, Bennett Miller (Capote) stepped in to direct. Now, Demetri Martin is leaving the cast and is being replaced by Jonah Hill. Hill will play expert statistician Paul De Podesta.
The young actor has a promising slate of films scheduled for release this year. Hill provided his voice to How to Train Your Dragon and Megamind, and he stars opposite Russell Brand in June's Get Him to the Greek.
