One of my favorite films of last year was Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street.  Based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort, the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as the hard-partying, drug-addicted stockbroker who was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and served a 22-month federal prison stretch.  The film also stars Jonah HillMargot RobbieRob ReinerJon Bernthal, and Matthew McConaughey.  For more on the movie, watch the trailer.

Last week I landed an exclusive video interview with Jonah Hill (who does amazing work as DiCaprio’s best friend).  He talked about how nervous he was working for his favorite director, how no one knew he was going to alter his voice until the first take, after Spike Jonze convinced him it was a good idea, whether he has seen the four-hour cut, 22 Jump Street, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Jonah Hill:

  • Was he nervous during the first few days of production that he could be fired?
  • Talks about how nervous he was on the first day and how no one knew he would have an accent.  He actually ran the voice by Spike Jonze before shooting began and he was the one that said go for it.
  • Has he seen the four hour cut of the film?
  • What can he say about 22 Jump Street?
