Reuniting with director Martin Scorsese for the fifth time, Leonardo DiCaprio gives what might very well be his best performance in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street, a sprawling, debauched, uninhibited three-hour biopic exploring the contemptible rise-and-fall of stockbroker Jordan Belfort. Also starring Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Kyle Chandler, Rob Reiner, and Margot Robbie, in her star-making performance, it’s hard to believe that a movie this present and vibrant is nearing its 10-year anniversary. Certainly, in the movie’s longevity (in many respects), the talented ensemble has only continued to excel. Let’s take this moment, then, to see what The Wolf of Wall Street cast is doing right now.
Leonardo DiCaprio (Jordan Belfort)
As Jordan Belfort, the stockbroker who used ill-gotten gains to make (i.e. steal) millions, Leonardo DiCaprio is, dare I say, criminally good in The Wolf of Wall Street. Unsurprisingly, he received two Oscar nominations for the film, as an actor and producer. This was one of several collaborations with Martin Scorsese. Namely, DiCaprio also worked with the legendary filmmaker on Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, and Shutter Island. He’s also reuniting with Scorsese for the upcoming Killers of the Flower Moon. Additionally, DiCaprio is known for his starring and supporting turns in Titanic, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Catch Me If You Can, Romeo + Juliet, Inception, Romeo + Juliet, The Great Gatsby, and The Revenant, for which he won an Oscar.
