Leo DiCaprio signs on to play possibly the biggest Oscar-bait role in history


Do you think Leonardo DiCaprio really cares about winning an Oscar? That’s a real question that I’ve debated with myself a few times. On one side, I don’t think Leo has any interest in shilling his way through a major Oscar campaign. He’s already Leo, you know? Why would he beg for it? He hasn’t had to beg for anything in more than a decade. But on the other side, yes, I think Leo probably does feel the sting every now and then, that he was snubbed for an Oscar nomination for Titanic (not to mention The Departed, which was one of my favorite Leo performances) and that he’s received four acting nominations throughout his career and it’s always someone else’s “turn.” So maybe that’s why Leo has signed on to a film that seems like the biggest Oscar-bait that was ever baited: he will be playing a real man with multiple personality disorder. Leo will be playing 24 different characters all in one character.

Leonardo DiCaprio is getting closer to playing a role he’s eyed for nearly 20 years — that of Billy Milligan, who was the first person to successfully use multiple personality disorder as a defense in a court of law.

DiCaprio’s Appian Way has come aboard to produce The Crowded Room with New Regency, while Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg have been hired to write the adapted script. The Crowded Room has been set up at New Regency for years, but never got off the ground (the project has been dormant for a decade). Smilovic’s hire gives renewed life to the adaptation of Daniel Keyes’ nonfiction tome about Milligan, who had 24 personalities. DiCaprio has been interested in playing him stretching back to 1997.

Published in 1981, Keyes’ book chronicles Milligan’s story, including his court trial in the late 1970s in Ohio after being charged with robbery and raping three women on the Ohio State University campus.

In the preparation of his defense, Milligan — who died in December 2014 — was diagnosed with multiple personality disorder. Pleading insanity, he and his lawyers contended that two of his alternate personalities committed the crimes without his knowledge. He was the first to use this defense, and the first to be acquitted for this reason. Milligan’s various personalities included Adalana, a lesbian taking responsibility for the rapes; Ragen, a Yugoslavian communist who admitted to the robbery; and Arthur, an uptight Englishman.

Hollywood has long wanted to bring Milligan’s story to the big screen. High-profile directors who previously circled the project include James Cameron.

[From THR]

I can already see one problem with a potential Oscar campaign: Leo will be playing someone who committed violent crimes against women, women who are presumably still alive. The film will be seen as glorifying an admitted rapist. That’s just a preview of what the other Best Actor Oscar nominees will be saying when they’re up against Leo. But yes, this part sounds like one of the biggest Oscar-bait roles in history. Leo just needs to work it out so one personality is in a wheelchair, one personality has a speech impediment, one personality has an incurable disease, one personality is a monarch or despot, etc. Just throw in every award-winning character trope into one character. Leo’s going to produce this as well, which means he’ll have a lot of control over the direction of the script.

    I don’t think he can pull this off honestly.

    • Betti says:

      Sadly, i agree. I don’t think he has the acting chops to pull it off – he can act but this is a role that is beyond his talent. I would love to see someone like Sam Rockwell in this role – he’d be perfect.

      PS – I loved him in the Wolf of Wall Street.

    • denisemich says:

      I think he can pull off the roll but I don’t think he will win. The Oscars are about politics more than talent. He needs to get married and have a kid prior to the release of the movie.

      I am looking at you Rihanna…. LOL>

      • epiphany says:

        +1. As much as I detest him as a person, I can’t deny that he’s a very good actor. However, the Oscars have shown time after time, they are about the “in” person, or the “in” subject matter when it comes to choosing a winner. Leo will always be an outsider unless he ditches the child/women he now dates, and finds someone more substantial, and someone closer to his own age. And before anyone cites Jack Nicholson as the perennial playboy who won multiple Oscars, recall that Jack has been in long term, well-known relationships with Angelica Huston, and Rebecca Broussard, which gave him at least the veneer of stability. If Leo had stayed with Gisele, he would share in some of that, but unfortunately for Leo, Gisele came to her senses a long time ago.

      • Debbie says:

        Don’t get me wrong I think he is a good actor but come on this is a role that is on another level. There are very few people I can think of who could pull it off. So it’s not a slight on Leo, he is good but he isn’t that good. This is Daniel day Lewis levels here and let’s be real Leo isn’t that.

      • Liv says:

        I also think that he can pull it off. He’s a great actor. Don’t know if he still is able to handle that many roles though. The potential is there (Gilbert Grape anyone?) – or do I better say was? 😉

    • Lilo says:

      24 roles he won’t get an Oscar for!

    • Isabelle says:

      Agree, unless its Leo playing 24 different versions of himself.

    • Katie says:

      I agree. He really plays the same character over and over with few departures.

  2. Sarah says:

    It could hurt his chances if he hits the red carpet with that year’s Victoria Secret model girlfriend who is young enough to be his daughter 🙂 Just saying.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      That never hurt Jack Nicholson

      • Kiddo says:


      • hadlyB says:

        Jack did bring his cute little daughter one year to the Oscars though showing how good of a father he was (HA) and a family man. He tried playing the game for a short time at least.

        I will give Leo credit that he is not giving in to any game and making some poor girls life miserable like Jack did Angelica’s. Warren Beatty at least waited til he really was ready to settle down ( was he 60? ) to get married and have kids. I think Leo will do the same.

        I think it’s utterly stupid to have actors settle down, have kids to seem like they are a family man to win an oscar when they are not ready. Why ruin peoples lives? Leo is a good actor, just a horrid person. He’s obviously not ready, has demons whatever they are or is not willing to give up the p*ssy.

  3. The Other Maria says:

    This be interesting and definitely hard to pull off.

  4. a cut above says:

    He was so good-looking in Titanic. Where did all the pretty go?!?!

    • it'sjustblanche says:

      He got the face he deserves.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Sometimes he reminds me of uncooked bread dough, kinda soft and squidgy, maybe even yeasty. I think I just put myself off toast for life 🙁

      • mimif says:

        Maybe even yeasty…I’m laughing but I’m also mad at you now. 😉

      • a cut above says:

        LOL. Now I can’t stop thinking about bread dough whenever I look at him!

        I guess Rose was right to let him sink to the bottom of the ocean. Let him go out at his peak.

    • Beth says:

      Leo looks like Chucky. 🙁

    • M says:

      Alcohol, drugs, parties

    • Josefa says:

      I always predicted he’d age badly (well, not really, I was 9 when Titanic came out, lol). A pretty, feminine beauty like his is meant to fade by the time they reach their 40’s. And the excessive partying sure didn’t help the matter, either.

      • Veronica says:

        The partying strikes me as more of the issue. Youthful beauty fades, but the weight gain and facial aging is all the drinking and drugs catching up. The guy is in his late thirties, not forties or fifties.

        But then, if I could walk into a gala and walk out with five models on my arm and still come home to movie offers on my voicemail, I probably wouldn’t care about my beer belly either.

      • sills says:

        Christopher Hitchens was a really extreme example of this. Look for college pictures of him, he was breath-taking. Decades of boozing killed any trace of it.

  5. Kaye says:

    I’m not a fan of DiCaprio the person, but the man can act. The Aviator was a prime example.

    I kinda think he can do this.

    • megs283 says:

      Yeah – I think he’s a brilliant actor. The Aviator, the Departed, Wolf of Wall Street, Catch Me If You Can…he’s shown that he has a wide range! Go Leo Go!

    • thecookingpan says:

      I’m an unapologetic Leo fan, not for his notoriety, but for for his talent. Aviator, the Departed, Wolf of Wall Street, Blood Diamond (his accent was the closest Hollywood has ever achieved) Gangs of New York even Shutter Island was made bearable due to his acting. Leo can act, well. He can pull this off. However, I agree with those who’ve said, flavours of the time and the potential to offend still living victims. I can’t think of an actor of this generation who’d have the commitment to the role to follow it through.
      And please who needs a pretty face when you have talent, Jack Nicholson is by no stretch of the imagination handsome, nor pretty,

  6. lila fowler says:

    Even if he sucks and the movie sucks, they’ll give him the Oscar just for the “effort.”

    Or actually, now that I think of it, they did completely deny Linklater, and if filming a movie for 12 years can’t get you a statuette, not sure what will.

  7. InvaderTak says:

    This sounds impossible to make into a movie and have it work. I can see this also being on of the biggest failures if the decade.

    • Josefa says:

      I agree. A story like that can’t be told in 2 hours. It would make an interesting miniseries, though.

  8. StormsMama says:

    He was superb in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape but the Academy felt he was too young and his time would come.
    The Departed was superb. Like goodfellas, it gets better with time.
    In some ways it *is* his turn if he plays his cards right.
    BCoop better hope he’s not up against Leo if this is the bait-iest bait of all Oscar bait bc BCoop is hooongray for Oscar 😳😝

    • Kiddo says:

      He was really good in the Howard Hughes movie.

    • SamiHami says:

      BCoop deserved it for American Sniper. He was phenomenal in that flick.

    • Bridget says:

      Gilbert Grape was also one of the last times he really got out of his comfort zone. As much as people talk about DiCaprio being great, how hard is it to be great when you’re working with Scorsese? He’s not taking any real risks, he’s not working with really interesting people (he’s working with successful people though), he’s doing all his work in safe bet prestige movies and I don’y think its a coincidence that someone manages to outshine him every year.

  9. MonicaQ says:

    I can only imagine being the woman who was assaulted and hearing that it’s being made into a movie. Makes my skin crawl. It was bad enough seeing my rapist just around town randomly until he went to jail–I can only imagine having him plastered all over the news in a “positive” light.

    • Veronica says:

      Seriously. Plenty of ways to take a critical look at the reality of mental illness without focusing on a rapist…who is a rapist because he chooses to be. It has nothing to do with his mental instability.

      Hollywood strives yet again to normalize sexual violence and terrorize women at every turn.

    • INeedANap says:

      And Leo doesn’t have enough respect for women to be appropriately critical of an admitted rapist.

    • dj says:

      Monica I am so sorry you had to go through that.

  10. Anne says:

    This movie sounds like a mess to me. How are they even going to have the time to explore the different personalities as thoroughly as they should? It’s not like it’s a TV series where they have the luxury of time to truly let the actor establish the characters. I think I will take Orphan Black over this any day of the week.

    • Curious Cole says:

      I love Orphan Black! Nice to meet another member of the Clone Club.

      I agree, covering 24 personalities and a landmark trial in under three hours doesn’t sound doable. I’m guessing some would have to be seen in short flashbacks. All of them can’t be sustained for the full arc.

  11. LoveLee86 says:

    I just feel for the victims. You try to move on then years later BAM, Hollywood makes a movie about your rapist…..how freaking awful for them. This just hurts my heart. I hope they can stay strong through the publicity and attention this movie will get. 🙁

  12. Maria says:

    i dont think its celebrating a rapist, that would pretty much mean you cant play any character thats evil without endorsing it. Hans Landa is a great character with a great portayal by Christoph Waltz, thats not taking anything away from the victims of real nazis.

    looking at anothe film of his, The Wolf of Wallstreet, there was criticism that the movie never outright portrayed the characters as evil. Yes and that was good, any sane person will be able to make up their mind about Leos role in the movie without someone lecturing to them “this is a bad man doing bad things”.

    • Josefa says:

      Sane people are a lot less common than you think, then. Most people I know walked out of the theatre wanting to be him. It was every rich frat boy’s dream.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      My dad wanted to see WOWS until he found out that a) it was basically sex and b) the character was a whiny little brat that was fine with stealing everyone’s money until he went to big boy jail…..

      • Kiddo says:

        What put me off were simultaneous interviews with the real subject who, although he claimed redemption and change as a human, seemed quite proud of his past.

    • JWQ says:

      The problem is that Hans Landa is a fictional character and WW2 has been a lifetime ago, and when enough time passes, history can be fictionalized. There are always problems when it comes to events and people who lived it are still alive, but since it’ s history, we can look at it with a certain detachment. Also, in “Inglorious Basterds” (and in every movie about WW2) the heroes are the people who kill nazis, not nazis torturing jewish.

      This, however, is the story of a real person: his victims are still alive, the story is relatively recent, and he is going to be the main character, a main character we as viewers might be disgusted of, on a rational level, but that we will still be lead to sympathize with for the simple reason that it is our POV character for the 2 hours of the movie.

    • LoveLee86 says:

      Maria, not sure if your responding to my comment or not…but I didn’t say it’s celebrating a rapist? All I said was I feel for the victims and hope they stay strong through the publicity and such. I can’t imagine being them and having to relive it on the 3 victims personal level. 🙁

    • Veronica says:

      Hans Landa is terrifying and intentionally so. There is a world of difference in portraying a character who is making the CHOICE to be evil versus the movie focusing on a rapist and juxtaposing his actions against that of his mental illness. Mental illness has nothing to do being a rapist. He’s a rapist because he chooses to rape. Portraying otherwise is an insult to the victims and mentally ill.

      Beyond that, the idea would be in poor taste even as a character study. Nobody but the worst of us says the Holocaust was deserved. Nobody feels bad for Nazis. On the other hand, we had a teen girl gang-raped by HS football players in Ohio a few years back, and the response of CNN anchors to them getting the bare minimum of sentencing was, “Those poor boys.” Until we start giving rape victims the empathy they deserve, my feeling is that movies like this just have the potential to uphold rape culture than undermine it.

      • DaysAndNightsOnAir says:

        Perhaps the movie will depict the rapist precisely as evil as he is. Just because that guy got away with the rapes by claiming mental illness that doesn’t mean it will be made to look good on the screen.
        If every rape scene on screen encouraged rape … that is just not correct. You could make a movie with a rape scene and the rapist getting away with it and the whole thing not looking good nor cool … it is possible as it’s art.

        I guess we will see how it will be depicted when the movie is out.

  13. Cynthia says:

    LEO really does not need an oscar. Everyone know LEO is a great actor,

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      Everyone knows he’s great?? I sure don’t. He was good is What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, and has pretty much just played versions of himself in every movie since then. The Aviator, Gatsby, Gangs of New York…all I see is Jack from Titanic in every single one of them.

      • hadlyB says:

        Really?? Wow. They are all characters in the movie not Leo himself at ALL.

        He is no Jennifer Anniston of movies.

      • JWQ says:

        I agree. The only movies in which I thought he was any good were Gilbert Grape, The Departed and Django Unchained, otherwise he plays the same (boring) character!

    • icerose says:

      I have always had mixed feelings re his acting-i have seen the occasions good performance but to often he leaves me cold

  14. Jayna says:

    He’s gross-looking these days.

  15. Jewbitch says:

    If it gets him to shave his beard, I’m
    all for it. Lol and cut that gross hair!

  16. Beth says:

    Never regarded him as a particularly outstanding actor but poor Leo. He has tried Spielberg, Scorsese, Tarantino, Fincher, Inarritu… after that kind of work history you’d really expect an Oscar or two. This new role does sound baity as hell and perhaps his time will finally come. I’m almost tempted to say just give the man an Oscar so that those Internet jokes and memes can finally be put to rest.

    • michelle b says:

      I’m tired of the Leo as the Susan Lucci of the Oscars storyline. I want the Academy to give him an award just to put an end to it – though I would rather it have been for Gilbert Grape or the Departed or the Aviator.

      Good god, he has lost the pretty, hasn’t he?

      • Beth says:

        Peter O’Toole should be so glad the Internet was not invented back in his day.

        And yes, Leo has lost the pretty quite some time ago. To me his looks went downhill around the time of Blood Diamond.

    • Av says:

      Fincher , what movie did he do with him

    • Miss M says:

      I saw a meme the other day at dlisted ,when this role was mentioned, that I couldn’t stop laughing. I know it was wrong, but it was funny.

  17. Bridget says:

    Leo wants an Oscar BAD. But as Kaiser said, I think he’s used to being Leonardo DiCaprio and having things just fall into his lap. He’s not only been out-campaigned but also out performed by the eventual winner when he has been nominated for Best Actor.

    I think his choice of roles is also an issue: he was never going to be awarded for playing Jordan Belfort and I think it’s going to be an issue that these victims are still alive.

    • DaysAndNightsOnAir says:

      Wolf of Wall Street is a great movie. But too much comedy at times to be Oscar baity. And not enough comedy to be an Oscar worthy comedy. And certainly not against the strong competition.

      • Bridget says:

        He was never going to beat McConoughay with smarmy Jordan Belfort. The years he’s lost the award went to someone that had a powerful performance that basically ran the table all awards season. Jamie Foxx, Forest Whitacre, Matthew Mc – they gave transformative performances, while the biggest stretch for DiCaprio (at least in his adult career) was a S African accent in Blood Diamond. He works with the best, most prestigious directors, but he’s made himself into the boring, safe bet.

  18. Josefa says:

    He definitely doesn’t need an Oscar. I’m not a fan of him at all, never have been. But I can’t deny he’s a fantastic actor. And people love him, going by the numbers. But does he want that Oscar? Yes. Yes he does. His choices of roles are oscar-baity as f*ck.

  19. original kay says:

    I cannot fathom why this even needs to be made into a movie in the first place.

    Oscar-baity or not, I will not be watching this.

    This person suffered, his victims suffered. Hollywood has sunk to a new low (again).

  20. JLo says:

    I think Leo will have to go full-Cumberbatch to finally get an Oscar. Not that it worked for Bendy (but he doesn’t have the same resume and his personal life wasn’t a punch line before his campaign)

  21. Lilacflowers says:

    He looks like he is auditioning for a Kid Rock biopic

  22. Alexis says:

    Orphan Black hasn’t won anything though. I suppose that’s different because it’s TV and its a woman (one of the disadvantages of the growing number of meaty roles for women on TV).

  23. Veritas says:

    We all know Leo can act. It’s not for lack of talent that he doesn’t have an Oscar. It’s all because of his personal life and his P Posse. I think the academy likes to reward the guys who know how to PR their personal life’s who are married with kids like MM. Not a 40 yr old dude who thinks he’s still 21 who hangs out with a dozen models at a time all while the paps are following him around to see.

    • Bridget says:

      Does he really deserve an Oscar though? Look at the movies he was nominated for Best Actor: The Aviator, Blood Diamond, and The Wolf of Wall Street.

    • FingerBinger says:

      Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty were notorious playboys and they both have oscars. George Clooney won before he got married. Leo’s personal life is not a factor.

  24. yennefer says:

    When I read the headline, I thought ‘is he playing Harvey Weinstein?’

  25. Gracie says:

    What about this guy that always stay in the headlines? Is it because of his notorious lifestyle?

  26. Joy says:

    My husband and I have discussed this a million times. He can’t understand why Leo still doesn’t have an Oscar. I told him he has GOT to buckle down and stop being the gallivanting playboy. And he can’t keep blabbing about oh the environment look I drive a prius————–yet I am 24/7 on jets and yachts and with 18 year old models. No that doesn’t change the fact that he’s a good actor and maybe he shouldn’t be judged on his outside behaviors, but he is.

  27. Veronica says:

    Doesn’t care about an Oscar? Please. He wouldn’t be grabbing up all of these Oscar bait roles if he didn’t care. That’s what makes it hilarious. He wants to a Serious Actor (TM) while screwing 20 year olds and partying like a frat boy pushing forty.

    • DaysAndNightsOnAir says:

      I think Leo is a good actor. Maybe even brilliant.
      But perhaps his modelizer ways are an indicator of some kind of immaturity which bleeds into his acting? And that is why he doesn’t get an Oscar?
      Could the figure of Jordan Belford (Wolf of Wall Street) have been depicted more differenciated at times? Jordan didn’t seem to care too much about the consequences of his actions – not even when getting jailed. Could that have been added to the acting somehow?
      I mean Scorcese has made many mafia movies in which the figures didn’t care much for the consequences of their actions. That made those figures look cool. But that doesn’t mean that such an approach necessarily works for WoWS.

      (P.S.: notice the question marks. I don’t have many clues. And feel free to discuss.)

  28. Size Does Matter says:

    Leo from the Departed is still in there somewhere, I have faith. Oh, that scene where he goes to visit Vera and he’s all wet from being in the rain…

    I’m curious about the psychology underpinnings of the story though. In Sybil Exposed the author basically takes down the foundation for multiple personality disorder. I don’t think the defense would fly today.

  29. Beep says:

    I would like to see him in a comedy. He’s in so many boring movies- he needs to change it up.

  30. ladyballz says:

    I was sure this was going to read Marlon Brando. You want oscar bait? Leo as Brando- hands effin down.

  31. ladyballz says:

    I was sure this was going to read Marlon Brando. You want oscar bait? Leo as Brando- hands effin down.

  32. ladyballz says:

    I was sure this was going to read Marlon Brando. You want oscar bait? Leo as Brando- hands effin down.

  33. ladyballz says:

    I was sure this was going to read Marlon Brando. You want oscar bait? Leo as Brando- hands effin down.

  34. Judy says:

    I think Leo is a very good actor, a good showing in this might see him regarded as great. I’d totally love to see this movie get made. “Sybil” and “Three Faces of Eve” delved into this illness and I’ve always been fascinated by the disorder. I see no problem with this being made as long as they don’t glorify the guy. They made a movie about Aileen Wuornos who was a convicted murderer and Theron was praised for it and won an Oscar. Relatives of her victims had to tolerate it. The “Executioners Song” glorified that killer too, similarly surviving close relatives of his victims were not a consideration.

  35. lunchcoma says:

    He’s a good actor, but just reading the description of this movie makes me feel tired.

  36. Happy21 says:

    I don’t know if he’d be able to pull it off or not. It sounds fascinating regardless. I’d love to see him try.

  37. bettyrose says:

    I’m so freaked out by the premise of this movie.

  38. ilovesunnydaze says:

    I could care less about his lifestyle and actually see nothing wrong with it. He’s an amazing actor. Probably one of the best ever. So he’s single, rich and women flock to him. Where’s the problem?

    • bettyrose says:

      But the real issue is how the voting members of the Academy feel about his lifestyle.

      • ilovesunnydaze says:

        I don’t think he cares about Oscar. Not enough to compromise himself or his lifestyle. He knows who he is. I respect him for that plus his talent.

  39. TessD says:

    I believe if he would play a low-key role, some Chekhov play or something, where there’d be none of that face-wrinkling, screaming rage but deep emotions that a talented actor can show with a glance, then he’d have more chances of winning. I’m surprised at his age he doesn’t realize that acting is not about this lava of actions.
    Does anyone remember the beautiful scene in “12 Years of Slave” when the main character looks around for a solid minute or two, doing absolutely nothing, but just looking? It was amazing. It told the story of his suffering and hope right there.

    He cares, of course he cares. Every one of them does – actors are like babies, they NEED recognition and praise.

  40. matahari says:

    He looks like Mr. Garrison from South Park

    • Josefa says:

      You won the internet today for the most hilariously accurate comparison I’ve read in a long time.

  41. Misprounced Name Dropper says:

    We all know how dubious the Academy Awards are. So why does every performance or movie these days have to be measured by its poetential to win an Oscar? It’s hardly a gauge of artistic merit.

    • TessD says:

      It’s a matter of recognition by your peers, the acting community. It’s like being the wife who is not welcome at the extended family’s Christmas dinner.

      • Misprounced Name Dropper says:

        They’re only your peers if you’re male and white. So I guess Leo has that covered.

  42. Debutante says:

    I think he should have gotten at least one Oscar already. And he did look bummed out when he lost for Wolf of Wall Street.

  43. Catelina says:

    I don’t have strong feelings on Leo as a person one way or another. He seems alright to me, a bit smug sometimes. His acting is a bit weird for me. I can watch his movies and recognize that he is doing a very good job, but somehow his performances tend to leave me cold. Only a few times has he inspired any sort of intense emotion in me beyond respect for his skills (Gilbert Grape is one of those times, and for some reason, Titanic is another one). I wouldn’t mind if he got an Oscar though. In some ways he is due, and more importantly, all the jokes and memes would stop. Or at least we would get some new ones which might be refreshing.

  44. MAC says:

    I hope the movie is made. So that all the comments I read above will learn it is a real mental illness that does not get the support or press that say bi polar does.

    It is real, it exists and it is horrific to live with it. It not something one chooses to have. People suffer with it for life. You can’t take medication like you can for being bi polar and it will level it out.

    I am not saying anything negative about the victims, I just want it made clear this is real and people are suffering wit it. It comes with many different facets like psychosis, flash back, uncontrollable switching to a different personality. It has a very high death rate by ones own hands. It never stops even when one is sleeping. Its hell.
