[Movies] Jonah Hill Did Not Like His Character In The Wolf of Wall Street
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.11.2014

In an interview with the Press Association (via NME), Jonah Hill said he could find anything to like about his character Donnie Azoff in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. Azoff is a drug addicted trader and friend of corrupt trader Jordan Belfort, played by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Hill said: "They say you're not supposed to judge the character at all and I tried my hardest, but I couldn't really find that much I really liked about Donnie. I just didn't like the way that Donnie treated people, that was the thing I had the hardest time with."

He mentions a scene in the film in which his character throws a lit cigarette at a child and forces him to eat his pet goldfish. He added: "It's really degrading. On the way home I would just be like "oh gosh, what did I do today?" I would feel bad."

Finally, he mentioned how he convinced Scorsese to cast him and how he went to his first audition in six years. He said: "I had got the opportunity to meet with Leo first and give him an impassioned argument as to why I had to play the part and then he was supportive, luckily. Then I went to New York and I said, 'well, can I show Scorsese what I want to do instead of just begging him to do the part?' Then I got to read with him…and I was lucky enough to get the part."

The film is out now. It has been criticized for the amount of greed and immoral behavior in the story, but DiCaprio has said it should be seen as a cautionary tale.
