Leonardo da Putin



Internet users worldwide may have poked fun at Leonardo DiCaprio for his Oscar desperation, but Russians upped the ante after the actor supposedly said he wouldn’t mind playing President Vladimir Putin.

“Putin would be very, very, very interesting. I would love to play him,” DiCaprio told Germany’s Die Welt.

Knights Bridge Entertainment announced the film on its website, promising an “intimate look” into the life of Putin. (“From the KGB, to Prime Minister… to President. The Man, The Myth! An intimate look into the life and rise of one of the world’s most powerful men.”) It did not, however, confirm rumors that The Revenant star had been picked for the role.
