After a relatively normal reveal of Leonardo DiCaprio as stockbroker Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese’s next project, it looks like the supporting characters are playing things a little differently. Production on The Wolf of Wall Street has been underway for a few weeks now and today we’ve got our first look at Jonah Hill, coming off an Oscar nomination for Moneyball and sporting some funky ’80s clothing and fake teeth as Danny Porush, best friend and business partner to our lead.
Then we’ve got a sickly looking Matthew McConaughey as Mark Hanna, who is Belfort’s boss early on his career and a mentor. Perhaps they will beef him up a bit in post-production, cause his current weight loss is actually for an upcoming drama titled The Dallas Buyer’s Club, where he plays a victim of AIDS and struggles to live through non-approved drugs. That one, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, is deep into pre-production so expect him to jump on that set soon. Check out the photos below. [Emileeid/X17/DailyMail]
Also starring Cristin Milioti, Jean Dujardin, Kyle Chandler, Margot Robbie, Jon Bernthal, Rob Reiner, Kenneth Choi, P.J. Byrne, Ethan Suplee, Max Hoffman, Katarina Cas and Jon Favreau, expect The Wolf of Wall Street in theaters next year.
