Nope, not the gang of inebriated party animals from the upcoming third Hangover film, but rather, the Wall Street predators for the upcoming film from Martin Scorsese.
The actor is enjoying a positive boost to his career right now, with work in Magic Mike and Killer Joe earning him some accolades, a pile that is certain to grow now that he has signed on to star in The Wolf of Wall Street.
McConaughey will play Mark Hanna, the boss of the partying stock broker Jordan Belfort, a real life figure who wrote a tell-all book of his experiences in that economic hub.
Leonardo Dicaprio takes the lead as Belfort, and is joined by Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Rob Reiner, Kyle Chandler, Margot Robbie, Jon Bernthal, Cristin Milioti, PJ Byrne and Ethan Suplee. Scorsese starts filming later this month, while McConaughey can next be seen in the upcoming thriller The Paperpboy.
