Leonardo DiCaprio is getting outsourced.

E! News has learned exclusively that DiCaprio has agreed to shoot a TV commercial for a Chinese cell phone company that will pay him $5 million. The deal is believed to be among the most lucrative one-off endorsement deals to date for the star.

The commercial, for the Guangdong OPPO Mobile Telecommunications Corp., is scheduled to be shot in April and will run in Asia later this year.

This isn't DiCaprio's first lucrative endorsement deal. The actor has also appeared in ads for watch-maker Tag Heuer and Suzuki.

When contacted, DiCaprio's publicist declined to comment on the latest deal.
