Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor Sends Jonah Hill Bizarre Email


During a recent interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jonah Hill discussed getting Nine Inch Nails members Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to score his new film Mid90s. Alternative Nation transcribed his comments, including a weird email exchange.

“They watched it and they said, ‘We’ll score the movie.’ I’ve Skyped with them, spoken to them on the phone, every day. Never met [Trent], we did it all virtually, which is insane, I’ve never met the composer.

He’s the man, and so is Atticus Ross. He’s the most dry, funny person I’ve ever met. He’s one of my heroes, so a lot of times I’d end the exchange with, ‘If you need someone to sing backup on Head Like A Hole, I’m available.’

It was never acknowledged. I was with my editor Nick, and I’d do it every day, every time we had to discuss the score, ‘Hey, I’m available to sing backup on Head Like A Hole.’ Nothing. After six months, I just got back on an email with everyone: ‘Ha.’”
