The Real ‘Wolf of Wall Street’?

The Oscar nominated movie Wolf on Wall Street was famously based on the story of Jordan Belfort, a crooked investment banker who made his money selling worthless stocks at a high price but according to some the original inspiration behind Leonardo DiCaprio’s foray into the world of overindulgence with 1990’s tailoring apparently didn’t come from Belfort himself but instead from a man named Dana Giacchetto. It is said that Leo became interested in making this particular film because he had actually lived it with Dana, having spent quite a bit of time hanging around with him, a former investment banker.

  1. Giacchetto’s theatrical affect is off putting. Beware of anyone who smiles this much; it indicates a con job is about to proceed.
    He’s proud of his greed and thievery. Remorse is a land far, far away for him.

  2. What a fucking complete arsehole. And fuck him for trying to get back.
