Leonardo DiCaprio takes on yet-another Oscar worthy role as Jordan Belfort in his latest collaboration with Martin Scorsese

Leonardo DiCaprio is onto yet another movie winner as he takes on the role of disgraced stockbroker Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street.

The infamous financier, who is now an author and motivational speaker, spent 22 months in jail for stock market manipulation and penned two memoirs, the first of which the movie is based on.

In the first trailer, just released, DiCaprio plays the spoiled, wealthy 'Wolf' to perfection.

"The year I turned 26, I made $49million, which really p***ed me off because it was three shy of a million a week," he begins.

In the clip, he explains, "we were making more money than we knew what to do with" and tried to the spend their immense wealth in some of the most obnoxious ways possible, including 'midget darts', taping wads of cash to women's bodies, using crumpled hundred dollar bills as note paper, drug use and everything in excess.
