His net worth is in excess of two billion dollars. He owns a basketball team, is on television every week and only wears a suit if it's a "damned good reason."
Well, apparently joining "Piers Morgan Live" for an hour-long interview isn't enough incentive for Mark Cuban to wear a suit and tie. But just because the Dallas Mavericks owner wasn't able to channel his inner Justin Timberlake, that doesn't mean he wasn't rather colorful during his visit with Piers Morgan.
"I remember the second it happened because, I was working at home in the morning, and watching the stock, because we were getting close," he explains, recalling the day he became a 10-figure man. "And I was literally naked in front of my computer when it crossed the line, and I was a billionaire." FULL POST
“What's In Your Wallet?"
It's been asked by seafaring vikings, and Jimmy Fallon. And David Spade. And Alec Baldwin. But in recent months, no one's made better use of the inquiry than Piers Morgan.
In November, the CNN host had billionaire Warren Buffett going into his pocket. A month later he forced his former boss Donald Trump to dig into his billfold, and reveal “I have very little cash on me. I like to keep it that way."
And this evening at 9, Mark Cuban is the latest 10-figure man asked to unmask his money. FULL POST
As the inspiration for both the book and the film, Jordan Belfort's "Wolf of Wall Street" words flew off the page, while his over-the-top persona exploded on-screen. But to some, the line between fiction and reality has been blurred, with bridges being burned in the process.
Andrew Greene maintains that the character of Nicky Koskoff is based entirely on him, and he's hardly happy with the likeness.
A former employee of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont, Greene was nicknamed "Wigwam," a nod to his ever-present toupee. In the movie, Koskoff is called "Rugrat." To Greene however, neither moniker is as egregious as "Wolf," a cover identity he insists Belfort created to compensate for literal and figurative shortcomings.
"Jordan Belfort, who was someone who I considered a brother, is selling a bill of goods to you and to the rest of the world right now. [Belfort] grew up as somebody that had an inferiority complex, who was smaller than everyone else, who wasn't the best athlete. Didn't have his first girlfriend until he was in college. What he's portraying to you is this Napoleonic complex that he had," Green told Piers Morgan in Tuesday's live interview. "When they say 'Wolf of Wall Street,' I'd like to know anybody who can tell me that anyone ever called him that." FULL POST
His was the lovable role who fawned over – and ultimately found love with – Courteney Cox's character in the "Scream" movie franchise. In real life, David Arquette's relationship with the former "Friends" star didn't finish with quite the same heartwarming flourish. Nonetheless, the man who portrayed Dewey Riley in four films has no regrets:
"No, I wouldn't change anything about that," says Arquette, of his 12 year marriage to Cox. "Having Courteney in my life's been one of the great joys and friendships and loves."
With the Academy Awards about a week away, tonight, the man whose autobiography inspired the Oscar-nominated film "The Wolf of Wall Street" joins "Piers Morgan Live" for a live, hour-long, face to face interview.
Depicted on screen by legendary Hollywood icon Leonardo DiCaprio, Jordan Belfort is made to be a man who employs unethical stockbroking tactics as a way to bilk investors out of hundreds of thousand of dollars.
And while the 51-year-old has no trouble admitting his shady business practices, he does take exception to the way the movie portrays the relationship with his family. In fact, he went so far as to take his eldest child to the theater so as to point out any inaccuracies: FULL POST
With the film based upon his life having already grossed more than 110 million dollars, Jordan Belfort has been able to begin taking small steps towards making retributions to the countless investors he swindled.
Tonight, the inspiration for "Wolf of Wall Street," Belfort joins Piers Morgan exclusively for a live, hour long interview, during which the host lists some of the people impacted by the behavior that landed Belfort in prison for nearly two years:
"Peter Springfield: an architect in Mystic, Connecticut, he lost half of his life savings. Dr. Alfred Vitt, a retired dentist, who lost $250 thousand dollars. One victim, called Bob Shearin, reportedly lost $130 thousand dollars, he told The Telegraph Newspaper this," details Morgan, before quoting from the article: FULL POST
For years Jordan Belfort employed dishonest business practices to prey on American investors. But tonight, the real “Wolf of Wall Street” is nothing if not transparent.
Joining "Piers Morgan Live" for the first interview since the release of the Oscar-nominated film which depicts his decadent rise to excessive wealth, Belfort notes that the movie, and his autobiography upon which it's based, should be viewed as manuals of what to avoid, not mimic.
Piers Morgan asks Belfort if there's a concern that “The Wolf of Wall Street,” which features superstar Leonardo DiCaprio in the titular role, might serve to glamorize the former stock broker's villainous behavior, Belfort offers a few key contrasts that separate the current Oscar-nominated file, and it's similarly-themed predecessors, including the 1987 classic “Wall Street” starring Michael Douglas.

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.
It's one of the most successful films thus far in 2014. A romantic comedy with a heartthrob hero and lovable leading lady? No. An action-packed shoot 'em up that covers multiple continents and comes complete with a catch phrase. Nuh uh. How about a star-studded drama with a heartwarming score, and a plot that tugs at your heartstrings. Nope. That's not it either. How about an animated feature based upon a kids toy that's 65 years old. Yep. That's the ticket.
Since opening on February 7th, "The Lego Movie" has grossed close to 200 million dollars. The key to the films success? It may very well be the relationship between the two men behind it, Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, co-writers, co-directors and best buds.
"We're like brothers, so we bicker and stuff," admitted Miller, in joining Piers Morgan for a live interview Thursday evening. "But we have a very similar point of view of things, a similar sense of humor. So, we have a lot in common, and we have a lot of respect for each other." FULL POST
