Hill revealed on "Late Show" (Weeknights, 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS) that he'll be playing a drug-addicted stockbroker who cheats people out of money.
That, he told David Letterman, did not sit well with his grandmother when he broke the news.
"She's quiet for a second," said Hill, "then she goes, 'I don't like that.' ... And I say, 'Well, what do you want me to do?' She goes, 'I'll tell you what you do. You march over to Mr. Scorsese and you say, 'Mr. Scorsese, I'd like a different part in the film.'"
"The Wolf Of Wall Street" is due out in 2013. Check Moviefone for local listings. "Late Show" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.
