The Walking Dead” star Jon Bernthal is joining the cast of Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. He’ll play a drug dealer and money launderer opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Jean Dujardin and Margot Robbit in the drama, based on Jordan Belfort’s best-selling memoir.

Terence Winter (“The Sopranos,” “Boardwalk Empire”) adapted the screenplay, which chronicles Jordan Belfort’s (DiCaprio) dramatic rise and fall on Wall Street, along with his hard-partying lifestyle and tumultuous personal life, which included drug and alcohol addiction.

Red Granite principals Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland are producing along with DiCaprio (Appian Way), Scorsese and Emma Koskoff (Sikelia Productions) and Alexandra Milchan (EMJAG Productions). Irwin Winkler and Georgia Kacandes will executive produce.

Production on The Wolf of Wall Street is slated to begin in August in New York.
