Leo DiCaprio Has His Eye On Playing Russian President Vladimir Putin
“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.”
Coming soon: Leonardo DiCaprio illustrating a Russian man, from some phase in history, near you .
