Matthew McConaughey Joins DiCaprio for Scorsese's THE WOLF OF WALL STREET

Matthew McConaughey is on a bit of a roll lately.  Starting with THE LINCOLN LAWYER last year, he has taken roles in lower-scale films like THE PAPERBOY, MAGIC MIKE and KILLER JOE.  So it's no surprise the actor has set his sights a little higher for his next project.

McConaughey has joined the cast of Martin Scorsese's upcoming film THE WOLF OF WALL STREET.  The story follows the rise and fall of Jordan Belfort (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) a young investment broker who sees his success dwindle after a series of criminal investigations.  McConaughey will play Belfort's first boss and mentor.

Already cast in the film is the aforementioned DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Rob Reiner, Jean Dujardin, and Kyle Chandler.

Production begins next month in New York City.

So what do you think?  Good for Matthew?  Think he's got the chops to handle Scorsese?
