Christine Ebersole, DiCaprio cast in 'Wolf of Wall Street'
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Christine Ebersole and Leonardo DiCaprio are going to be family in the film "The Wolf of Wall Street."
Talent agency APA said Tuesday the Tony-winning Ebersole will play DiCaprio's mother in the drama. Martin Scorsese is directing the film, based on a New York stockbroker's memoir of his rise and fall.
Ebersole, who also plays a mom in the TBS comedy "Sullivan & Son," is on the big screen next in "The Big Wedding" with Robert De Niro, Amanda Seyfried and Katherine Heigl.
Ebersole is a two-time Tony winner for the Broadway musicals "Grey Gardens" and "42nd Street."
