"The year I turned 26, I made $49 million, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week."

Leonardo DiCaprio's back as a money-making millionaire, but this time his role is based on a real-life, morally-flawed character from another decade. The protagonist of The Great Gatsby stars in The Wolf of Wall Street, a film about the rise and fall of Jordan Belfort, who during the '90s made more than $100 million while he was still in his 20s.

The real-life Belfort went to prison for scamming investors out of more than $200 million. He later went on to publish a memoir in 2007 titled - you've guessed right, The Wolf of Wall Street.

Scorsese directs. Matthew McConaughey co-stars as DiCaprio's boss. Jonah Hill joins the romp. The film drops Nov. 15. Watch the trailer below.
