Did you know that actor (and secret Dicaprio fanboy) Jonah Hill was only offered $60,000 to star in the Martin Scorsese-directed film? The 30-year-old actor revealed all this during an interview on the Howard Stern show:

I want to sign them tonight before they change their mind. I said I want to sign them before I go to sleep tonight so they legally can't change their mind."

The pay cut definitely paid off big time, as Hill has since been nominated for an Oscar his role as stockbroker Donnie Azoff in the film.
