Jean Dujardin in Talks to Appear in New Scorsese Film
Martin Scorsese’s latest project, The Wolf of Wall Street, has possibly added another star-studded name to its cast. This year’s Academy Award-winner Jean Dujardin is in talks to join the film, according to his Los Angeles-based agent. Dujardin would be another addition to the already impressive cast including Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. The film is based on a book by the same name by Jordan Belfort, which follows Belfort’s sordid career as a stockbroker.
The 39-year-old French actor would play Jean-Jacques Handali, a Swiss money launderer for Belfort, who is played by DiCaprio. Filming begins this summer in New York.
