The Wall Street star appears in a brooding black and white one-minute clip in which he is seen sitting in a leather armchair. James Franco and Matt Damon have also appeared in the 14 actors series, which sees stars portray "classic screen types".
His rep tells the publication, "He's doing better. He keeps improving, but it's a slow process."
