Jean Dujardin to join Leonardo DiCaprio in 'The Wolf of Wall Street'

jean-dujardin-gi.jpgTo follow up on his standout role in 2011's "The Artist," French actor Jean Dujardin is reportedly in talks to join Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese's upcoming project "The Wolf of Wall Street."

In the movie, DiCaprio will star as Jordan Belfort (the movie is based on his memoir) -- a slick Wall Street banker whose hard partying and complete disregard for the law prove to be his undoing. Variety reports that Dujardin would play Swiss banker Jean-Jacques Handali, who was involved in laundering illicit funds for Belfort's firm.

"Friday Night Lights" star Kyle Chandler is already attached as the FBI agent who takes Belfort down.

Dujardin will also be seen in the upcoming "The Players" and is attached to co-star in French spy thriller "Mobius" with Tim Roth.
