Jon Bernthal goes from The Walking Dead to Scorcese's The Wolf of Wall Street

Jun. 19, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Maybe getting killed off of THE WALKING DEAD was not such a bad thing.

Jon Bernthal, who played the douchemaster general known as Shane on THE WALKING DEAD, has joined Martin Scorcese's THE WOLF OF WALL STREET in a role described as a drug dealer and money launderer.

Bernthal joins the growing cast that already features Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, and Margot Robbie.

The story is based on Belfort's memoir focusing on his days as, "a Long Island penny stock broker who served 20 months in prison for participating in a massive 1990s securities fraud that involved widespread corruption on Wall Street and in the corporate banking world, including mob infiltration. Belfort -- who lived large, owned a yacht that sank off the coast of Sardinia and became an alcoholic and drug addict."

Bernthal is already starring in Frank Darabont's upcoming L.A. NOIR on TNT as well as recently wrapping the action film SNITCH starring Susan Sarandon and Dwayne Johnson.

While I disliked the Shane character, that is a credit to Bernthal's performance.  He imbued Shane with a lot of layers that make you question whether he is a bad guy or a good guy gone crazy.  I look forward to seeing L.A. NOIR and THE WOLF OF WALL STREET grows more interesting with each new castmember.

What a handful of losers. The episode aired 3 months ago. Either get up to speed or quit bitching about the world going on without you. If you have time to dick around on the computer, you have time to catch up on a show that hasn't had a new episode since March.

WTF spoilers

Thanks, haven't watched the second season yet. Yet this retard thinks spoiling a season that hasn't even been released on DVD yet is a good idea.

You're a writer for a major movie website dude, what the fuck are you thinking?

It was already spoiled several months ago when he was cast as the lead in another TV show (which was announced before the end of season two of The Walking Dead). That said, one probably shouldn't open an article with something like that.

Brilliant

This guy was one of the greatest things about Walking Dead. I feel he was a good guy who lost it. Rick, Laurie and Carl would make for a great treat for any "Zed" head. It's good news for this actor though. The guy was one of the best things about the show.

Good for him!! It's nice to see fresh faces get chances on the big screen. As for Shane, I side with the theory that he was a good guy that went bad.
