Jonah Hill says his parents are used to seeing him in hard-R-rated romps with lots of sex jokes. But they were pleasantly surprised by Cyrus, an R-rated comedy in which he plays a 21-year-old man-child with a talent for the electric keyboard, as well as an inappropriate affection for his mom (Marisa Tomei) — something John C. Reilly’s character learns the hard way when trying to date her. ”They like seeing the different sides of what I do,” Hill says of his folks. ”Cyrus was just a really weird guy that they don’t know. That was nice for them.”
