Apparently, Jean Dujardin and Martin Scorsese got on well during awards season, as Variety reports that the Best Actor winner is in talks to play a Swiss banker in Scorsese's new film, The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. (Fellow 2011 Oscar nominee Jonah Hill co-stars.) There is no role for Dujardin's semi-retired canine friend Uggie yet, but you'll note that they haven't cast a female lead yet, and you can do a lot with makeup these days. Paws crossed?
