Who's That Guy In 'Wolf Of Wall Street'? A Beginner's Guide

Because trust us, seeing 'Growing Pains' will enhance your enjoyment of 'The Wolf of Wall Street.'

It's Christmas. You're watching "The Wolf of Wall Street" with your family (awkward), friends (probably just as awkward) or by yourself (easily the most awkward; get right outta there). You notice the screen (because you're at the movies, and that's what you are there to do): "Hey, it's that guy," you say to yourself. "I recognize him. But from where?"

That's Leonardo DiCaprio, dude. He's pretty famous. Why are you seeing "The Wolf of Wall Street" if you don't know Leonardo DiCaprio?

Luckily, your friends here at MTV News were put on this earth to enrich your cultural experience. If you're sitting there going, "Hey, I like that guy I saw orchestrating a massive, coke-fueled orgy! What else can I see him in?" then brother or sister, you are in luck. Like, yes, we know you've seen The DiCaprio himself in "Titanic" already, but let's dig a little deeper, shall we?
