Actor-director Jon Favreau has signed on for a role in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.

The multi-hyphenate will play a securities lawyer, although no further character details were given. Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Jordan Belfort, a Long Island stock broker who made millions selling phony stocks in the 1980s. The story is adapted from Jordan Belfort's memoir, that chronicles his rise and fall, along with his bouts of substance abuse. Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Jean Dujardin, Margot Robbie, Jon Bernthal, and Rob Reiner also star.
