Jon BernthalNow that the shock of Jon Bernthal‘s Walking Dead death is behind us, we all waited with baited breath to see what thirty-five-year-old actor from Washington D.C. would do next.

 

Would he do TV or Film? He hasn’t had much luck in the film department, but he’s a fine actor nonetheless and fitted for television. I first took notice of him as Sgt. Manuel Rodriguez in the acclaimed HBO miniseries ‘The Pacific.‘ He was so great in that telling of America’s World War II fight in the Pacific.

 

Well, the wait is over. Actually it’s been over, because we learned last month that he would be re-teaming with the former Walking Dead show-runner Frank Darabont as the lead in his new TNT series, L.A. Noir. So, there you have it, he’s a TV man. Or is he?

 

Today, deadline reports that Jon Bernthal has taken on another role. He joined the cast of the Martin Scorsese-directed The Wolf Of Wall Street. He’ll play a drug dealer and money launderer, in the film that start Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. The film’s being financed by Red Granite and produced by Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland, DiCaprio, Scorsese and Emma Koskoff, and Alexandra Milchan. Terence Winter wrote the script about the rise and fall of Wall Streeter Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio). Irwin Winkler and Georgia Kacandes are executive producers. The film shoots in New York in August.

 

Maybe Jon Bernthal is multifaceted like Jon Hamm, one of those actors who can seamlessly transfer from the small screen to the big screen without criticism. I can’t wait to see him in both.
