21 Jump Street star Jonah Hill will be joining Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street. The question is, will this be a comedy relief role, or is Jonah trying to be seen as a more serious actor?
The film is based on a book of the same name that chronicles the ups, downs and debauchery of “entrepreneurial icon” Jordan Belfort through drugs, sex and other madness.
After getting an Oscar nomination playing Brad Pitt’s wing man in Moneyball, Jonah Hill has just been set to star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf Of Wall Street, the Martin Scorsese-directed adaptation of the Jordan Belfort memoir. Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter wrote the script.
The film chronicles Belfort’s dramatic rise and fall on Wall Street, along with his hard-partying lifestyle and tumultuous personal life, which included drug and alcohol addiction. Hill will play his close friend, who becomes Belfort’s business partner when the charismatic stock broker persuades him to quit his job in the furniture business to jump into the lucrative, volatile world of stocks.
I guess… I’ll go see it for Leo and because Scorsese can do no wrong if you ask me. Jonah’s a funny guy, and I’m curious to see him in a dramatic role.
