NEWS.i.e. Leonardo DiCaprio to play Lenin

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.
