From a Tony nomination to playing Leonardo DiCaprio's wife in a film directed by Martin Scorsese -- as far as career boosts go, it doesn't get much better.

Cristin Milioti, recently nominated for her turn in the Broadway production of "Once," has landed the pretty plum role in "The Wolf Of Wall Street." Joining a cast that so far includes Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler and "The Artist" star Jean Dujardin, the film tells the true story of Jordan Belfort, a wheeling and dealing New York stockbroker who sees his career and personal life fall into shambles thanks to sex, drugs and alcohol. Milioti will play of Belfort's Italian-American hairdessing wife, who is crushed by his infidelity.

Milioti will continue her run on Broadway before heading over to 'Wall Street' when production on the Terence Winter penned film begins at the end of the summer. And we would guess her appearances on "The Sopranos" may have tipped her to Winter and Scorsese's attention. And in case you're curious what her pipes sound like, watch her below signing the show's signature tune, "Falling Slowly." [Variety]

    Ok listen to Jay and Claudy since they actually read the script. I was just going by the character descriptions and it seemed like Nadine was the better part.

    Jay is right that Denise is the plum role for an actress. More range, more emotion, more to work with and one of the few sympathetic characters in the whole thing.
    Nadine is a flashy role because she's supposed to be uber-hot and spends most of her time getting naked but as a character she's a one-dimensional, walking sex object. It probably will go to one of those beautiful but not particularly talented blonde actresses like Amber Heard.

    Having read the script i have to disagree, Denise is the better part, has more range to it. Nadine does nothing but get naked, i wouldn't be surprised if they cast someone like Amber Heard or Blake Lively, because the role doesn't require anything but sexuality.

    I think Lively was rumored for the Nadine part around a year ago but considering DiCaprio and her broke up I doubt she's even being considered now. Heard would be perfect quite frankly

    Heard is so uniquely untalented though that i almost prefer marble mouth...

    Amber Heard yes... Blake Lively, fuck no. This is Martin Scorsese we're talking about... he has his pick of young actors and he's not going for marble mouth.

    Nadine is Jordan's other wife in the film/book and that's the real plum role.
