Hard at work on his latest project, Leonardo DiCaprio showed up on the set of “The Wolf of Wall Street” in New York City yesterday (November 27).
Joined by French actor Jean Dujardin, the “Titanic” hunk looked intense in his dapper business suit as he shot scenes in the Financial District.
In related news, Leo is credited with getting Daniel Day-Lewis to sign on for the lead role in Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln.”
Spielberg explained, "He said, 'I could never play Abraham Lincoln.’That it was just too intimidating. 'What if I don't succeed? I don't want to bring down the image of a great man.’”
"Leo DiCaprio was at my house for dinner one night. It was just myself, my wife and Leo. And he says, 'Hey, what's going on with your Lincoln project?' I told him the sad story. I had one shot at Daniel and he had declined. And that was that. Leo just listened. And then the next morning he called me at my office. He said, here's Daniel's cellphone number, he's expecting your call. Leo has never told me to this day what he said to Daniel. But that began this wonderful journey."
