Leonardo DiCaprio

The Wolf of Wall Street

17 Jan, 2014

In this biographical drama, directed by Martin Scorsese, DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort, a Long Island penny stockbroker who served 36 months in prison for defrauding investors in a massive 1990’s securities scam that involved widespread corruption on Wall Street and in the corporate banking world, including shoe designer Steve Madden. Co-starring Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie.

I wanted to do a film that to me was a depiction of what I felt like are the times that we live in. Jordan Belfort to me was somebody that not only was I obsessed with playing since 2008, watching the destruction of our economy, he’s not the problem, but he represents something within our very nature, and something within our society that is very wrong.
