John Bernthal is one of those people who pops up in all sorts of stuff, even though his name isn’t that well known – although he’s certainly recognisable to the many fans of The Walking Dead. He has now joined the growing cast of Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, according to Variety.
Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Jordan Belfort, a Long Island stock broker who defrauded millions of dollars from investors before he was caught and sentenced to 20 months in prison. The story also chronicles his rocky personal life, substance addictions and hard-partying 80s lifestyle. Jon Bernthal will play a drug dealer and money launderer. Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Jean Dujardin, and Margot Robbie also star.
Martin Scorsese will direc from a screenplay by Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter. Production is scheduled to begin this August in New York City.
