Not satisfied with what( surely) will be his first Oscar winning role in The Revenant, Leonardo DiCaprio has set his sights on playing the role of Russian President Vladimir Putin . Riding high on being nominated for Best actor, the superstar said in an interview with German magazine, Welt 😛 TAGEND

“Putin would be very, very, very interesting. I would like to play him, ”

DiCaprio- who funds the World Wildlife Fund’s Big Cat Rescue- met Putin back in 2010 when he attended the International Forum on Tiger Conservation in St. Petersburg, and it seems the President has got a bit of a soft spot for big cat 😛 TAGEND

My fund has several projects aimed at financial support for protecting these wild cats[ Siberia tigers ]… Putin and me spoke only about these magnificent animals , not about politics.

Forget playing Putin, what about a remake of The Lion King with Leo as Simba and Putin as Scar…

It’s not just Putin the actor is interested in, as he also told the magazine 😛 TAGEND

I think there should be more cinemas about Russian history because it has many narratives worthy of Shakespeare. That is fascinating for an actor … Lenin also would be an interesting role. I would like also to superstar as Rasputin.”
