Matthew McConaughey Will Join Leonardo DiCaprio In ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’

The Takeover

I’m not sure, but I think Matthew McConaughey has been slowly plotting a quiet but deadly industry takeover. This summer he’s starring in Magic Mike and the newly-released NC-17 crime thriller, Killer Joe. And now he’s managed to catch the eye of the great Marty Scorsese, whose next film, The Wolf Of Wall Street, is in its final stages of casting. It’s just been announced that  Matty-boy is officially on, which means he may be officially retiring from his position as universal eye candy. But then again, that’s a job that doesn’t require a lot of commitment. He pretty much just has to show up, so he can probably keep the job even as he joins the ranks of crazy talented actors who’ve done a Scorsese flick. Everybody wins! Deets inside.
