Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film The Wolf of Wall Street is shaping up to have one plum of a cast. And in addition to names like star Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and Jean Dujardin, a new name was recently announced: None other than Rob “Stop Calling Me ‘Meathead’” Reiner, who will be playing the part of Leonardo DiCaprio’s dad.

Interesting thing about the current picture we have of the cast: Hill, Dujardin, and Reiner are all known for their work in comedic productions. This is leading some analysts to speculate that perhaps Scorsese has something a bit more lighthearted in mind than the movie’s subject matter might suggest at first – it’s about “a wheeling and dealing New York stockbroker who sees his career and personal life fall into shambles thanks to sex, drugs and alcohol.” Uh, hilarious?

The eyes of the movie-going public are all over Jean Dujardin to see how he’ll follow up his Oscar-winning performance in The Artist. Would he make his Hollywood debut as a handsome European villain, or go the less-traveled route and play a handsome European love interest, or a handsome European wacky best friend?  Well, the answer is here: He’s going to be a handsome European banker in the upcoming Martin Scorsese picture The Wolf of Wall Street.

Dujardin will be joining Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and Kyle Chandler as “a suave Swiss banker” who will handle launder money for the company owned by DiCaprio’s character, the titular “wolf of Wall Street.”

Some have commented on Dujardin’s limited grasp of English, and asked the question of whether or not this will be an impediment to his performance in the movie. I say, European accents are awesome, so why would you complain? Shooting on The Wolf of Wall Street begins sometime this summer. (The Playlist)

Jean Dujardin Wins Best Actor http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jean-dujardin-wins-best-actor/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jean-dujardin-wins-best-actor/#comments Mon, 27 Feb 2012 04:26:58 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=246201 Damn, really?

Well I’ll be damned. Jean Dujardin has won the 2012 Academy Award for Best Actor. His performance in The Artist beat out Demian Bichir, George Clooney, Gary Oldman, and Brad Pitt. The fact that his role was almost entirely without dialogue makes the win even more impressive, or perhaps more frustrating if you weren’t a fan. Either way, I chalk the win up to Uggie‘s performance rather than Dujardin’s. I love that god damn dog.
