    I was interested when I saw Rasputin in the title, and sold when I saw DiCaprio in the brief. In short, [​IMG]

    He's got his work cut out for him to surpass Alan Rickman in the role.

    I hope this is a project he really has the chance to win an award for.

    Between Tom Hardy possibly playing Elton John, and now this, it's like Bizarre Casting Week.

    In fairness, I can picture Leo as Rasputin a bit better than Hardy playing Elton John.

    This is gonna be a very interesting project, man. I really want to see Leo take this on. If any of the other pool of actors cycled around here were taking the role we wouldn't say it's Oscar bait, so hey.

    Doesn't really seem like Oscar bait to me, more of an epic type of film with a mythic character at the center of it, hopefully it will be grand in scale.

    Until he has an Oscar statue in his hands, every role he takes can and will be seen as him setting his sights on an Oscar win. It's just the way it is.

    He could do a cameo in a Seth Rogen movie and it'll be like "look at this guy, trying to wrangle that Oscar."

    Well, there are a few roles he honestly should have won one for but they just disregarded it.
