Leonardo DiCaprio is rumored to be in negotiations to play Vladimir Lenin in the biopic Lenin’s Brain, according to British newspaper The Sun.
The movie will be directed by a Russian director, Alexander Borodyansky, who believes the actor has a striking physical resemblance to the communist leader when he was young.
“I’d say that Leo can impersonate the revolutionary leader even without make-up”
This isn't the first time Leo was asked to play a legendary figure. In 2004 he played Howard Hughes in the Aviator and Romeo of Romeo + Juliet in 1996. In 2010, he is set to play Teddy Roosevelt in The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt.
