Cool Videos: Matthew McConaughey explains his Wolf of Wall Street "hum"

In Martin Scorsese's THE WOLF OF WALL STREET there's a scene where Matthew McConaughey and Leonardo DiCaprio have lunch together, which results in some rather odd behavior. No, I'm not talking about the advise to from McConaughey to jerk off, snort coke, and drink til you drop, but rather his strange chest thump/humming, which came out of nowhere. It just seemed like one of those idiosyncratic moments upon first viewing, but McConaughey explains the behavior while on The Graham Norton Show, which is an interesting insight into what it's all about and how it came to be in the film.

Check it out:

And, here's the actual scene:

McConaughey had a hell of a year in 2013 with THE WOLF OF WALL STREET and DALLAS BUYERS CLUB and is already kicking ass in 2014 with HBO's True Detective and surely will again in Christopher Nolan's INTERSTELLAR, which hits on November 7, 2014.

Can I just point out how much I'm loving McConaughey's career turnaround? I kept waiting for him to step out of the rut he was in and push himself... and now he's on fire and on his way to owning an Oscar. Love that guy.

Gerard Butler, take note.

I saw this scene several times over the course of a couple weeks while at gym...but the TV volume was down so I couldn't hear the dialogue. Would always smile at MC's facial expressions and wondered what the hell was going on. Now I know. :o)

McConaughey accomplished a feat of "one scene wonder-ness" in this film, the kind of thing Christopher Walken always does so well.

I fucking love that scene. What's even better is when the entire office of Stratton Oakmont doing it towards the end, that scene is easily one of the best.

ok

I thought the chest bump humming thing had a bigger meaning, it seemed like something the writer put in. It shows up again later when DiCaprio's character announces he's not retiring. He hums and beats his chest and the whole office joins in. It is a nice little feature that got put into the movie spontaneously and totally works in it's favor. It just seemed too perfect to be spontaneous

cool movie fact.

I love hearing about how an actor or actress will improvise during a scene and then find out why they did what they did.
