Christine Ebersole cast in 'Wolf of Wall Street'
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Christine Ebersole and Leonardo DiCaprio are going to be family in the film ‘‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’’
Talent agency APA said Tuesday the Tony-winning Ebersole will play DiCaprio’s mother in the drama. Martin Scorsese is directing the film, based on a New York stockbroker’s memoir of his rise and fall.
Ebersole, who also plays a mom in the TBS comedy ‘‘Sullivan & Son,’’ is on the big screen next in ‘‘The Big Wedding’’ with Robert De Niro, Amanda Seyfried and Katherine Heigl.
Ebersole is a two-time Tony winner for the Broadway musicals ‘‘Grey Gardens’’ and ‘‘42nd Street.’’
