We all know how Jonah Hill feels about drugs, but don't get it twisted—when it comes to pretending to be on drugs in a Martin Scorsese movie, Hill wouldn't rather do anything else. Examine, the following quote from a new interview with the Wall Street Journal to promote Scorsese's upcoming film, The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Hill:

"I mean, being shot in slow motion doing cocaine by Martin Scorsese is, like, maybe every actor's dream. Nothing will ever compare to it, except for maybe having kids one day or something."

Fair enough, really. Jonah Hill went from a bit role in The 40 Year Old Virgin playing a guy who really wanted a pair of disco boots to playing a major role alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in a Martin Scorsese film. It might be even better than having kids.

Hill also calls Scorsese—Marty, as he affectionally refers to him as—his "actual hero," and says that the film may shock viewers: "The humor comes from really awful places. I've done some pretty wild scenes. I'm not shy, but I would be shocked at what we were doing every day."
