The move would follow similar actors who done so in the past, like Aaron Paul, who made the move to change his legal surname from Sturtevant to Paul earlier this month. The star is hoping to make the change for his family as well, which include his wife and son.
While Hill won’t have to worry about his name change having a ripple effect for a spouse or children, he does have a famous sister who also works in the industry.
