Jonah Hill has revealed that he wanted to be a part of Leonardo DiCaprio starrer The Wolf of Wall Street so much that he agreed to play the role of Donnie Azoff for just 60,000 dollars.

During an radio interview, the 30 year-old actor said he was so excited to work in the film that he excepted the meager amount, which is the minimum allowed by the Screen Actors Guild according to Hill, the New York Post reported.

Hill said that he wasn't worried about how much he'd make working on the film because he was desperate to work with director Martin Scorsese.

The actor has garnered rave reviews for his role and has scored an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
