Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the best actors of all time. We've seen him go from Arnie Grape to Jack Dawson to Frank Abagnale Jr to Calvin Candie to Jordan Belfort. Leo has shown he could play the good guy and the bad with his most notable being Calvin Candy. Well, Leo is now up-ing the stakes in terms of evildoers he portrays.
Leonardo DiCaprio has made a career out of playing historical individuals who were too smart for their own good. From Catch Me If You Can to The Aviator to J. Edgar to The Wolf of Wall Street, DiCaprio’s niche is to play fiercely intelligent men whose vision often exceeded their grasp. So who better to play someone as notoriously ahead of his time — and just as notoriously impatient when it came to finishing projects — as Leonardo da Vinci? The world-renowned painter, architect, and inventor will apparently be the subject of an upcoming biography, one that DiCaprio’s production company quickly snapped up before it even hit bookshelves.
