Leo DiCaprio wasn't on the roster when Jonah Hill hosted "SNL" on Jan. 25. However, the hunky thespian showed up just in time to interrupt his "Wolf of Wall Street" co-star while Hill was dissing Leo on the live, late night staple that airs on NBC.
As seen in a video from the show, Hill, who was hosting "SNL" for the third time, started his monologue when he suddenly found himself being bombarded with questions regarding Leo. Throughout this impromptu question and answer session, Jonah tried hard to big time himself in front of the audience, consistently being thwarted by yet another person wanting to know all the details about DiCaprio and his glamorous life.
Just as his colleague Hill was telling the enthusiastic crowd about how Leo was actually not the first choice when Martin Scorsese was casting his Academy Award-nominated film, co-star DiCaprio literally staged bombed Jonah on "SNL" to set the record straight.
Not mincing words, the "The Aviator" actor asked his buddy what he was doing slamming him and then admitted that he had been backstage the entire time to support Hill during his stint on "Saturday Night Live."
Their banter had one calling the other one out while Hill was obviously lying when he said he had only said the best things to say about the handsome actor.
Pushing for honesty, Leo convinced Jonah to tell the truth, which drew lots of laughs as Hill sheepishly did so. As the jokes wound down, DiCaprio helped Hill feel less nervous about this gig as he had during his time on "Wolf of Wall Street." The security blanket was for Jonah to take on the romantic Rose role as the two lovingly reenacted the famous ship's bow scene from "Titanic."
And so, after Leo DiCaprio stage bombed Jonah Hill on "SNL" on Jan. 25, the "Wolf of Wall Street" co-stars launched yet another episode of the wildly popular NBC skit show on the small screen that was a big hit with everyone who watched this week's guffaw laced offering.
