Martin Scorsese had to immediately see Leonardo DiCaprio for the lead role in The Wolf of Wall Street. For their fifth film together, DiCaprio could not have been a better actor to be cast in the role of Jordan Belfort. Belfort’s real life story of illegally milking investors using the stock market embodies late 1980s wealth and greed.
Paramount has released two new DiCaprio-centric character posters for the film, hot on the heels of the first The Wolf of Wall Street clip which we debuted last week.
DiCaprio is joined in the star high wattage department in the cast by Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey.
As previewed in The Wolf of Wall Street trailer, DiCaprio’s Belford will do anything not only to make a buck, but to hide that money from the government and anyone else who seeks to take any part of it.
The Wolf of Wall Street lands in cinemas December 25, just in time for Oscar consideration!
