Everyone's favorite TV coach (sorry, Craig T. Nelson) is the latest to join the cast of Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' based on a script by 'Boardwalk Empire' scribe Terence Winter.

Deadline reports that Kyle Chandler of 'Friday Night Lights' fame has signed on alongside Scorsese favorite Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill for the film based on the memoir by Jordan Belfort.

DiCaprio stars as Belfort in a tale that would sound perfectly Scorsese-ish enough if it didn't already have the director attached. Belfort quickly ascends to power on Wall Street until he falls down a hard spiral of drugs and partying because, well, that's what people with money and power do in a Scorsese film. Belfort's shenanigans eventually earn him a 22 month jail sentence because, well, that's what happens when you mess with drugs, kids.

Chandler has signed on for the role of FBI agent Coleman, the man who brings Belfort down. Hill will play Belfort's best friend, a furniture salesman enticed to quit his job to enter the world of the stock market.

Chandler's upcoming projects include 'Argo,' from director and co-star Ben Affleck, and 'Zero Dark Thirty,' the Kathryn Bigelow thriller based on the true story of Navy SEAL Team 6, the men responsible for putting an end to Osama Bin Laden. We still impatiently await a 'Friday Night Lights' movie. Do you hear us, Peter Berg? Put the toy battleships down and get back to football.
