Leonardo DiCaprio Pursued His 'Django Unchained' Role

Leonardo DiCaprio suits up while filming scenes for his new flick The Wolf of Wall Street on Tuesday (November 20) at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The 38-year-old actor’s Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino recently talked to Playboy about how Leo got involved with the flick.

Leo and I have hung out over the course of 15 years, and he likes my writing and makes sure he gets a copy of scripts I finish to see if there’s anything that might float his boat. He got this one and really liked Calvin Candie,” Quentin said, adding that Leo called him to ask for the part.
