Scorsese has been busy filling out his eclectic cast for last few months. DiCaprio was attached from the very start, but recently Jean Dujardin, Jonah Hill, Rob Reiner, and Kyle Chandler have joined the fact-based story of a young, hot shot stockbroker, who gets entangled in drugs and corruption before a disastrous fall.

"The Wolf of Wall Street" will hit theaters sometime next year.
