The French actor would play Jean-Jacques Handali, described by the trade paper as a "suave Swiss banker." (As if Dujardin could be anything but suave.) He would join a cast that already includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and
Coach Taylor Kyle Chandler.
Based on the memoir by Jordan Belfort, "Wolf of Wall Street" follows a stock broker who finds fortune and excess in the free-spirited '90s, only to be brought down by embezzlement charges. DiCaprio will play Belfort, while Hill co-stars as his friend and colleague.
The film marks the fifth collaboration between DiCaprio and Scorsese, following "Gangs of New York," "The Aviator," "The Departed" and "Shutter Island."
