Leo To Play Serial Killer Dr. HH Holmes

leonardo dicaprio to play serial killer dr. hh holmes

His darkest role to date, by far.

Sources are confirming that Leonardo DiCaprio and his Appian Way partner Jennifer Killoran have secured the rights to the critically acclaimed nonfiction book The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic And Madness At The Fair That Changed America. The book follows the murders of Dr. HH Holmes, known to be the first major serial killer in American history. He's believed to have murdered anywhere between 27 to 200 people at a time of the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893.

Not only is Leo's company producing the flick, but Leo is said to be starring as the infamous killer in the film adaptation.

Something tells us he'll be turning to his old friend Martin Scorsese for a little guidance on this one!

We can't really see Leo as a ruthless murderer, but we don't doubt his acting ability either.

Do U think he can pull it off?

    he can do whatever he wants
    he is so fucking amazing



  2. 2

    Hell yeah. He can do whatever the hell he wants he's so talented (and hot).



  3. 3

    He'll be great - H.H. Holmes built a hotel in Chicago with all kinds of secret death rooms - killed all kinds of women (and some children) who thought he loved them….

    This book was phenomenal. I think he could play this character very well.



  5. 5

    He's not aging well. He looks great for 50, but he's nowhere near that. No longer leading man material. He's going to be a great character actor and there's nothing wrong with that, but his looks have not held up at all.

    I do not care if Leonardo looks handsome or not! He is an excellent actor and his work speaks for himself… I loved him in Body of Lies, Blood Diamond and many more and I find myself waiting for his next projects…

    Maybe, at the beginning of his career you could get lost in his looks but as time passed by you could only admire his great skills as an actor. He really gets into the character, he delivers and that's why I respect him as much as I do.

    I strongly believe that he is going to shine in this new project of his cause he has what it takes. And I cannot wait to see the movie cause the book was excellent.

    So, please, do yourself a favor and stop judging people based on how they look and start appreciating the quality of their work. If what you want is pretty faces and nothing more, you are judging the wrong actor. Maybe Mike 'The Situation' Sorentino can give you that.

    Re: Christina Polo – Thats definitely a matter of an opinion.

    But thats beside the point. Either way… he's an incredible actor & I think he can pull it off.
