A judge has subpoenaed Oscar-Winning actor, Leonardo DiCaprio to testify in a lawsuit over the portrayal of a character in the 2013 hit "The Wolf of Wall Street". The actor, who played Jordan Belfort in the 2013 Martin Scorsese comedy, must face a deposition after former Stratton Oakmont executive Andrew Greene filed a $15 million lawsuit against the producers of the film over his portrayal in the movie as character Nicky Koskoff.
The New York Daily News has reported at a recent hearing that United States judge Steven Locke has allowed Andrew Greene’s motion to compel a deposition from DiCaprio who may have some insight on the connections between character Nicky Koskoff and Stratton Oakmont executive Andrew Greene. However, many experts speculate his testimony is more likely to cover his production company’s involvement in the film. The production company has argued that DiCaprio shouldn’t be required to testify due to his lack of participation in the writing and performing of the character in question.
