Leo DiCaprio Braves New World

Leonardo DiCaprio is set to star and produce the film adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s classic dystopian novel “Brave New World.”

THR reports that the 34-year-old actor will likely play lower-caste member Bernard, who is persecuted when the leaders of the society find his behavior antisocial.

Set to produce and direct is Ridley Scott, who brought us Gladiator and Blade Runner. Ridley‘s latest movie Robin Hood, which once again stars Russell Crowe, will be released in 2010.

    Usually no Leo posts. Now we get tons of Leo posts. GO JJ!!! Yay!
    I guess Bar’s mom no longer has JJ on the payroll. SWEET.
    I will see all his movies even if it is 2 hours of LEO watching paint dry.

    His head looks unnaturally big in the pic on the right.

    Now that he’s going into middle age, he is not aging well. He’s gonna balloon like Marlon Brando and continue to date 20 year old models like a loser.

    Goody, what are you, 13 years old? DiCaprio has a good number of years before middle age. And he’s always been a little pudgy and averse to do weight lifting.

    ummm.....hate to say it but Says:

    I have to agree, he has a body of a middle aged man rather than a 34 year old, he’s a good actor but I don’t think he’s hot in any way, shape or form!

    @tess, it’s really funny that you think he’s boring and overrated but you still come to his post to talk about him, interesting!

    This book is awesome and so is Ridley Scott….but Leo is so wrong for the part….it seems like they just want to put a big name in the movie without considering if he fits the role. Someone like Ed Norton would be better. Or Ewan McGregor.

    He just isn’t at all hot anymore. Sad because he is only 34.

    Mary Says:

    @Dassie, Leo will produce the movie, so he could do whatever he wants and maybe he wants star in. Anyway I think he fits the role

    leo is GAY – inside knowledge.

    lexy Says:

    He’s so talented!!

    As for him being gay – who cares??? He’s still a hottie and talented. But I’m always curious why the cute guys are always “gay” – no one ever claims Woody Harrelson or Kevin James or Ray Romano is gay and their wives are beards.

    Why is it only the hot guys who people claim are secretly gay???

    fran Says:

    Not so good looking anymore. I think he’s a good actor but not as good as the parts he gets suggest. He’s quite powerful in hollywood and hence lucky enough to get some of the best roles with the best directors
