Jonah Hill hosts 'SNL,' Leonardo DiCaprio reenacts 'Titanic' (Video)
Jonah Hill hosted "Saturday Night Live" for a third time on Jan. 25 and the Oscar-nominee's "Wolf of Wall Street" co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio, made a surprise appearance on the show during Hill's opening monologue. Video of the moment can be seen below.
Hill was talking about being an Oscar-nominated actor when several cast members, including Taran Killam pretending to be Brad Pitt, interrupted him to ask him what it was like working with Leonardo DiCaprio.
"Leo, which is short for Leonardo, you know, he's a terrific guy," Hill said. "He's still learning but he's obviously a huge star."
He later went on to joke that DiCaprio wasn't really supposed to be in "The Wolf of Wall Street" and that he had to convince director Martin Scorsese to cast him in the film.
"I say [to Scorsese], 'Should we get DiCaprio on board?' And Marty says, 'I don't know if he can handle it. Sure. He's a movie star. He puts teenage girls in the seats. But we need a real actor, like you,'" Hill said before DiCaprio stepped up on stage.
Hill immediately became humbled and apologized to DiCaprio, who encouraged him to not act like a "big shot," but to be humble instead.
That's when Hill asked DiCaprio, "Hey Le. Remember when we were on set and I would get really nervous?"
"Yeah, yeah, yeah, I remember," DiCaprio replied.
Hill then said, "Can we do the thing we always did every day? The thing that always made me feel safe?"
DiCaprio reluctantly agreed and Hill stretched out his arms and the "Titanic" theme played when DiCaprio snuggled behind him to recreate a scene from the iconic film.
Hill then yelled out, "Am I flying Jack?"
