Leonardo DiCaprio is raking in the dough overseas.

The "Inception" star will be earning $5 million to shoot a television commercial for a Chinese cell phone company in April, E! News exclusively reports.

The commercial, which is for the Guangdong OPPO Mobile Telecommunications Corp., will be shown on Asian television screens (and hopefully the internet).

While E! news reports the deal is believed to be the most lucrative one-time endorsement deal for the actor. DiCaprio has also been a face for watch-maker Tag Heuer and Suzuki.
