Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and screenwriter Terence Winter finally opened up about their movie The Wolf of Wall Street in a recent discussion with The Hollywood Reporter that is set to air at 6 p.m. tonight on PBS SoCal as part of the new series The Hollywood Reporter in Focus.

THR's Stephen Galloway sat down for an exclusive discussion with the Paramount's film's major players that included frank talk about airplane orgies, scoring quaaludes, Steven Spielberg's visit to set and why DiCaprio was drawn to the real-life story: "It was like a modern-day Caligula."

Of his most challenging moment, DiCaprio revealed:

"The speeches. I had been thinking about them for seven years. But I had never had a monologue like that in my life -- I mean, [one] went on for four pages. It was amazing. And there was such a lead-up to it, it was almost like an adrenaline dump. And I immediately got sick. I was supposed to get up there in front of 600 extras and give this giant Braveheart-like speech on greed, and my throat just seized up. I got strep throat."

Scorsese said Spielberg's arrival on set coincided with the filming of the speeches.

"He said he came in to say hello, and he stayed the whole day and was helping me, saying, 'I think you should move the camera,'" the director added, laughing. — THR Staff | The Hollywood Reporter
