  • Leo to play Teddy?

    DeCaprio, Scorsese to take on Roosevelt

    Sep. 12, 2005 at 7:25PM

    Director Martin Scorsese and actor Leonardo DiCaprio will team up again for a Paramount Pictures film about U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt.
    The film based on Edmund Morris' Pulitzer Prize-winning book, "The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt," will focus on the formative years of the 26th president, as he reinvented himself from a slight and privileged New York politician with a Harvard degree to the burly commander of the Rough Riders, Daily Variety reported Monday.
    DiCaprio and Scorsese are currently working on their third film together, "The Departed," the Warner Bros. remake of the Hong Kong crime drama "Infernal Affairs." The duo previously teamed for "Gangs of New York" and "The Aviator."
    Fuck. There's no way they'd let that wispy kid play my man Teddy?

    Right?

    RIGHT?!

    FUCK...

    Actually..I bet he'll be pretty good. He was good in the aviator..so, it wouldnt surprise me.

    What is it with Scorsese and Leo..every movie he makes..he plays the lead role.

    Like Tim Burton and Johnny Depp..

        I agree that the thought of Leo playing TR makes me sick, but remember that as a youngster, Rossevelt was far from the tough guy that he was later in life. He was sickly throughout most of his youth, but he made great efforts to overcome it.

        So in that case, getting a weasel like Leo might be fitting.

          Yes, of course, I know that, but the idea of the commercialization and bastardization of the sacred TR is just so so wrong.

              My thoughts exactly. It seems like a counter-intuitive choice, but an actor as good as DiCaprio under a director as good as Scorsese could pull it off.

              DiCaprio, BTW, will turn 31 in November.
