Where would Leonardo Di Caprio be without Titanic?
What do you think would happen to Leo if Titanic never happened or if Christian Bale got cast as Jack instead?
zlisted and in rehab. Instead we get to suffer through him
Out. Titanic and the fame that came with it has kept him in the closet. Only he can say if it was worth it.
If Leo didn't do Titanic, he would have done Tobey's movies:
1997 - The Ice Storm (Tobey's Character)
1998 - Saving Private Ryan (Ed Burn's Character - a larger part)
1999 - The Cider House Rules (Tobey's character)
2000 - Gladiator (Joaquin's part - again, made larger)
2001 - Planet of the Apes (Mark Wahlberg's character)
Then he is offered the role in Gangs of New York and his career continues as it has to this day.
We have a Leo troll!!
I was totally surprised that this didn't turn out to be a Heath Ledger tell posting.
River Phoenix would have played Jack in "Titanic" had he not overdosed and died. I caught a bit of his appearance in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" and I wonder if he would have done more Young Indy movies after that.
Titanic actually ruined Leo for a while. He was a great actor, who all of a sudden tried to fit the standard teen magazine role.
It took him until "Blood Diamond" to recover and put in a believable acting performance again. Even so, Titanic still stained Leos reputation as a quality actor.
I watched Django Unchained last night, and everyone was excellent, including Leo. It's maybe the first thing I've liked him in since the Basketball Diaries.
