Jonah Hill has been cast opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorcese's The Wolf of Wall Street, Deadline reports. The film, based on the bestselling memoir, stars DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort, a stock market king during the eighties who landed himself in federal prison and was banned from the securities business in the nineties. Hill will play Belfort's close friend and eventual business partner, because of course: If you are a handsome leading man and you need a sidekick, you call Jonah Hill.
