Need more proof that Matthew McConaughey is having the best year of his career? Mike Fleming reports that the Magic Mike actor has been cast in Martin Scorsese's next film, The Wolf of Wall Street, where he'll play the mentor to Leonardo DiCaprio. Don't expect him to look all that great doing it, though, since McConaughey is currently crash dieting for his upcoming role as an AIDS-afflicted man in The Dallas Buyers Club.
