There's suffering for your art and then there's getting punched in the face and Jonah Hill did both for Martin Scorsese's upcoming, three-hour "The Wolf Of Wall Street." And the lesson he learned here is: when you agree to take a punch, no one else on that set is gonna step in to save you.

The Wolf Of Wall Street

There's suffering for your art and then there's getting punched in the face and Jonah Hill did both for Martin Scorsese's upcoming, three-hour "The Wolf Of Wall Street." And the lesson he learned here is: when you agree to take a punch, no one else on that set is gonna step in to save you.

[Scorsese] looks at me and goes, 'Hey kid, you wanna try when he hits you for real?' I don't wanna look like a wuss... so I turned to [Leonardo DiCaprio] to try and make eye contact to say, maybe, 'Ok, Marty, maybe do something else'. So I don't answer and I look to Leo and... he completely looks away and leaves me hanging!" Hill recounted (via ContactMusic). "We go out there, we do the scene... [Bernthal] just decks me... I wore big fake teeth and they split and flew out of my mouth...! I'm on the floor and I'm in a daze and I just hear Scorsese (say) out loud, 'His face is swelling, get him some new teeth and let's shoot it!' Someone put some teeth in my mouth and they film my face swell." 

That's dedication to a role and to a movie. Meanwhile, a new TV spot has landed along with a few more snaps and while this flick may run just a shade under 180-minutes, if it moves this fast, it's going to whiz by in the blink of an eye. ":The Wolf Of Wall Street" opens on Christmas Day. Watch below.
