Jonah Hill Joins Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street'

Jonah Hill has caught another big break: The Moneyball star, who appeared on the big screen earlier this year in 21 Jump Street, will star opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese's next movie, The Wolf of Wall Street.

The film, based on the memoir by Jordan Belfort, chronicles Belfort's (DiCaprio) rise and fall on Wall Street, which eventually landed him in jail on charges of money laundering and fraud. According to Deadline, Hill will play Belfort's close friend-turned-business partner.

Hill's acting career continues to climb!

This is the latest coop for Hill, who in January picked up a surprise Oscar nomination for his performance in the Brad Pitt vehicle Moneyball. (He lost to Christopher Plummer, for Beginners.) Prior to Moneyball, Hill was known for his comedic work, in raunchy films like Superbad and Knocked Up.

Now he joins the Oscar-winning Scorsese, who will be collaborating with Leo for the fifth time. They previously worked together on Gangs of New York, in 2002; The Aviator, in 2004; and The Departed, in 2006, for which Scorsese (finally) won a Best Director Oscar and Shutter Island in 2010.

Scorsese was most recently nominated for an Oscar for his eye-popping 3-D adaptation Hugo. DiCaprio will return to the big screen in two high-profile projects this year: Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, respectively.

What do you think? Is it finally time for everyone to take Jonah Hill seriously? Sound off in the comments, below!
