From USA Today:
I hate Leonardo, so I hope it doesn't pan out. Where's the puke smiley when you need it?
13-time NBA world champion Lakers: 1949, 1950, 1952, 1953, 1954, 1972, 1980, 1982, 1985, 1987, 1988, 2000, 2001
Not to get off topic here but, George, why do you hate Leonardo? Please don't say it's because of 'Titanic'! That's a tired excuse to me. I'm sorry but this just baffles me when someone says that because if you've seen 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape?', 'The Basketball Diaries', and 'This Boys Life' you'll see that the kids a damn fine actor, especially in 'Grape'!
Please, humor me with specifics.
Back on topic, I too hope this comes to fruition, as I think the two of them could make a great film together.
Warner Bros. is officially dead to me.
It also puzzles me when someone says they hate an actor. It is as if they know them personally including their inner thoughts. Oh, well...
I also think that he's a fine actor. I'll add Marvin's Room to the list of films already mentioned.
I would also like to know why you "HATE" Mr. DiCaprio George.
I also find it amusing when someone states that they "hate" an actor as though they know them personally to make such an assumption. If you don't like his work, fine. But to HATE him? A bit extreme, doncha' think?
I personally think he is a fine actor as is evidenced by the films John and Edwin mentioned. I too hope this comes to fruition.

You failed to mention his finest moment.
His director...hailed as a visionary!
His costars...Academy Award nominees and winners
His genre...an American classic!
Yes, my friends...The Quick and the Dead!
I'm sure GONY will be excellent.
P.S. Yes, I actually enjoy The Quick and the Dead! it's a lot of fun, even with Sharon Stone in it.
Well to be fair, Leo hasn't really done anything worthwhile since Titanic in 1997. This could probably change with Gangs of New York, though.
First of all, I don't know DiCaprio personally, so that's not what I meant (as I suspect you all know).
What I meant of course is that I hate watching movies that have him in them.
Another worthy effort is Baz Luhrmann's (Moulin Rouge and Strictly Ballroom) Romeo + Juliet. Anyone that can do Shakespeare is okay in my book.
Thanks Jason! You just made coffee shoot out of my nose! Ouch!
BTW, I liked The Beach...but I guess I'm in the minority...
Back on topic, I too hope this DiCaprio/Spielberg movie pans out. Sounds promising, to me.
I for one would like to watch this movie, not because DiCaprio is in it, but because Spielberg is directing it.
That kid is one of the few 'young' actors who can really act. Hope this film gets made.
I think DiCaprio is a tremendous actor who people don't take seriously because of his hearthrob (sp?) status. He was excellent in the Man in the Iron Mask - one of my favorites. Why that movie was received poorly boogles my mind.
I too think DiCaprio is one of the greatest young actors, if not the best, but is lambasted because he is adored by young girls.
I don't think a director like Martin Scorsese would have casted him otherwise.
Hope he and Spielberg will work together.
I posted something very similar to your post but for some reason its gone.
DiCaprio was amazing in The Man in the Iron Mask - a fav of mine.
RE: Man In The Iron Mask:
I've always been amused by that "theory" too. It's a poor defense and makes little sense, if any.
IMO, Mr. DiCaprio will win an Oscar someday. He is that good an actor.
