Oh my God, the emperor of F-cksville came down from F-cksville to give me a pass! Hey, what are the citizens of F-cksville doing today when their emperor's gone? Is it, is it mayhem? Are people looting and raping? What are all the little f-ckheads doing while you're here?
~ Donnie Azoff mocking a drug dealer.
Donald "Donnie" Azoff is the villainous deuteragonist in The Wolf of Wall Street.
Donnie is the sidekick to Jordan Belfort. He first met Jordan when he was at a diner and noticed Jordan dressed well. At the time, Jordan had been working at a small "bolier-room" type firm which sold penny stocks after he lost his internship on Wall Street due to the "Black Monday" stock market crash of 1987. Although not a prestigious job, penny stocks could give a high yield and at the time were generally ignored by regulators due to their low cost. Using the aggressive techniques he learned from his mentor Mark Hanna, Jordan is able to make a small fortune from the good commissions he makes on penny stocks. Donnie, who is working an unknown job at the time, is wearing a loud coral and turquoise shirt. Seeing Jordan dressed nicely, Donnie asks how much money he makes. Jordan at first considers this an invasive answer to a stranger and brushes it off, but finally answers he made seventy-two thousand dollars. Donnie says that if this is true, he will join up: "Show me a pay stub for seventy-two thousand dollars and I will quit my job right now and come work for you." Impressed with such cockiness, Jordan shows proof, the laughs as Donnie calls his old boss saying "Hey Paulie, it's Donnie. No, everything is OK, just needed to let you know, F*** you, I quit!"
While Donnie may be very sincere about craving money and the luxurious exploits that it can finance, he is much less excited about his domestic home life. He'd rather meekly attempt to convince Jordan, and himself, that being married to a first-cousin is completely normal. If we had to call Donnie's wife by name, we probably could only remember the moniker that Donnie refers to her as most frequently, "Ugly". They also have two kids, regardless of the risk for birth defects associated with their conception. After becoming flush with cash, Donnie Azoff's private humiliation evolves into the primal urges of a life without shame. This family man also made time for public masturbation, gay club outings, wild orgies, street corner prescription drug marathons, eating live fish and Wall Street corruption that was in the hundreds of millions. Even his childhood friend Steve Madden gets conned into becoming a client of this stock exchange anarchy.
Even though he started out as a seemingly strong businessman, his wealth and success got to him as it did with Jordan. As a result, Donnie became extremely greedy, self-absorbed, callous, spiteful and reckless. When the federal government got the right dirt on Jordan's operations, Donnie deleted everything incriminating about himself while his co-workers were getting arrested. He then gave an incriminating note that Jordan had written in an attempt to protect Donnie from the government, effectively betraying the man who had given Donnie his wealthy new life.
Donnie Azoff is based on Danny Porush, who like in the film was Belfort's second-in-command. Unlike the film, Porush did not marry his cousin, having met his first wife when both were in their 20s.
