    Jonah Hill Earned $60,000 for Role in The Wolf of Wall Street: Jonah Hill revealed a bit of surprising news this week about taking the role of stockbroker Donnie Azoff in The Wolf of Wall Street and how much he earned to star in the film.

    While being interviewed by Howard Stern during his radio show on Tuesday, Jan. 21, the 30-year-old actor admitted he made $60,000 and was willing to work for the SAG minimum in order to collaborate with director Martin Scorsese.

    Hill also told Stern he couldn't sign his contract fast enough because he was so afraid they would change their minds and hire someone else.

    But of course, that didn't happen. And now, Hill finds himself nominated for an Academy Award for his performance opposite Leonardo DiCaprio.

And apparently it's not a new thing, because if you search "snorting smarties" on YouTube, there are videos from years ago showing kids inhaling the candy just for kicks.
