According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hill is in negotiations to join Leonardo DiCaprio in the Martin Scorsese-directed â€œThe Wolf of Wall Street.â€
Hill would play Danny Porush, the best friend of the main protagonist Jordan Belfort. He was convinced by Belfort to quit his job as a furniture salesman and enter into the world of stock brokering.
The story is based on the memoirs of Jordan Belfort, a stockbroker who participated in a massive securities fraud in the 1990s and served 20 months in prison.
Hill recently starred in the action comedy â€œ21 Jump Streetâ€ and was nominated for an Oscar for his supporting performance in â€œMoneyball.â€ He will be seen in the sci-fi comedy â€œThe Watchâ€ with Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn.
