The trailer for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf on Wall Street is out and we've played it over and over trying to spot Jake Hoffman, who was cast as Steve Madden. The film is based on former stockbroker Jordan Belfort's memoir of brokerage company Stratton Oakmont, which was founded by Belfort and Madden's childhood friend Danny Porush. A bit of securities fraud and money laundering led to jail time for all of the above.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays Belfort, which might account for the Great Gatsby shivers we got from the trailer after the jump. Besides a main character, the two films share dramatic tales of unrestrained wealth, similar soundtracks, and general debauchery. (Except this one's minus the headbands and Prada, plus a yachts and polos.) Check it out after the jump, and help us find Madden!
