Jonah Hill is not happy with "Glee" star Matthew Morrison.

During an interview on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" that aired on Wednesday, the actor talked about an experience he had with the "Glee" star while attending a Fox fall upfront event where Morrison made a joke at his expense.

Hill has an animated series called "Allen Gregory" which he created and provides a voice for the main character. The show is set to debut on the network on October 30.

The actor said he felt a little out of place amongst familiar Fox faces like Randy Jackson, when he saw Zooey Deschanel, the actress who stars in "The New Girl." Hill said he and Deschanel attended high school together and were old friends.

Deschanel was talking to Hill when a Fox executive told Hill to be quiet, that's when Morrison quipped, "Yeah Jonah, can't you stop talking for one second?"

"Everyone laughed at me. I wasn't even talking," Hill told Fallon. "This dude from 'Glee' calls me out. Green Mile's (Michael Clarke Duncan) laughing, Randy's laughing."

"He builled me. He's a big timer on Fox, I'm this new kid. I've got stars in my eyes," Hill added.

The actor then said weeks later he spotted Morrison again at a Hollywood party and Morrison was with "Gossip Girl guy" Chace Crawford.

Hill tried to eavesdrop on the two actors' conversation when he said he heard, "'Something, something, something, Jonah Hill' and they both start laughing." Hill added, "Matthew Morrison said that, not the 'Gossip Girl' guy. Matthew Morrison says that. Like I'm the punch line in this guy's joke. He doesn't even know I'm at this party and it's 'blah, blah, blah Jonah Hill' and then crack up?"

"Yo Matthew Morrison you better bring your [expletive] next time I see you dude," Hill said while he looked into the camera. "I call dudes out on Fallon!"

The actor then got up and pointed at the camera while Jimmy Fallon tried his best to calm him down. "I'd love to see him sing his way out of this one," Hill said.

Hill, who was on the show to promote his upcoming film with Brad Pitt called "Moneyball," then laughed it off saying, "I'm just kidding, you [Morrison] seem like a great guy."

"Moneyball" will be released on September 23. The film is based on a true story. Pitt plays Billy Beane, general manager of the Oakland Athletics baseball team, who utilizes a new method of scouting players that mostly involves analyzing game statistics. Hill portrays his assistant, Peter Brand, while Hoffman plays the team's manager, Art Howe.

Hill recently revealed that Pitt pranked him on the set of the film with a golf cart decked out with Wham! photos.
