It’s been an alright-alright-alright year for Matthew McConaughey, who’s starred in Steven Soderbergh‘s ‘Magic Mike,’ Richard Linklater’s ‘Bernie,’ and can currently be seen in William Friedkin’s ‘Killer Joe.’ And now the actor will take a stroll on down to Wall Street for Martin Scorsese in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’

That’s a killer line-up of directorial talent, and McConaughey is doing a stellar job┬ámaking us forget weak rom-com fare like ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’ and ‘Failure to Launch’ with this latest run of starring roles.

Next up McConaughey will join Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Jon Favreau, Rob Reiner, Kyle Chandler, Jon Bernthal, and Ethan Suplee in Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’ According to Variety, the actor has signed on for the role of Mark Hanna, an early boss and mentor of DiCaprio’s character.

The film is based on the memoir by Jordan Belfort, with DiCaprio starring as Belfort, a man who quickly ascends the power ladder on Wall Street until all of that pesky money gets him into some serious trouble with drugs and illegal activities because rich people are bored, so that’s what they do. Belfort eventually winds up in jail, serving a 22 month sentence, proving that crime doesn’t pay… but the stock exchange totally does, so keep that up, rich kids.
