Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. It wasn't so long ago that Leonardo DiCaprio was scoffed at. I remember in the late '90s I was the weird (male) defender of the man, but you couldn't convince most guys that there was more to DiCaprio than being attractive to the ladies. They obviously hadn't seen his dramatic work and were just looking at the surface of Romeo + Juliet and Titanic.
So, it's a little vindication seeing that DiCaprio is the go-to A-list star for the best directors in the world. From Scorsese to Nolan to Eastwood to Tarantino, the man's in high demand.
And I dig that he goes for some odd characters. He's next starring in Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar and EW just released the first few photos of DiCaprio in his Hoover makeup. It's weird! Very curious to see how this one turns out.
