Funny man Jonah Hill is ready to get serious again. The 21 Jump Street star will join Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, an adaptation of Jordan Belfort’s memoir.

In the film, Leo will portray Jordan as he makes it on Wall Street, and then loses everything as his personal life spirals out of control. Jonah will play the friend who gets him into stocks in the first place.

Given his Academy Award nomination for his work in Moneyball, we’ve got high hopes for Jonah in this next dramatic role!
