Though Jonah Hill hosted “Saturday Night Live” for the third time last night, it was a surprise appearance from his “Wolf of Wall Street” co-star that is making waves.
Hill, who recently received his second Academy Award nomination, marveled at his fortune during his opening monologue, but was a little put off when audience members began asking questions about Leonardo DiCaprio instead.
“I call up Marty Scorsese, I say, ‘Marty its JH. I’m ready to get in the ring together.’ He says, ‘Finally,’” Hill explained after reaching his breaking point. “Then I say, ‘Should we get DiCaprio on board?’ And Marty says, ‘I don’t know if he can handle it. Sure, he’s a movie star and puts teenage girls in the seats. But we need a real actor like you.’”
