Jonah Hill’s Salary Sacrifice for Scorsese Mirrors Life of Those Trying to Make It in TV News | Mediaite: "Which is why it was shocking to learn on Howard Stern’s radio show this week that Hill accepted a mere $60,000 for his Oscar-nominated role in The Wolf of Wall Street (the film took seven months to shoot). To put that number into context, the $60K represents 0.6 percent of what Leonardo DiCaprio was paid for the same movie ($10 million).
