    I know there's lots of time till this movie gets release, and there's only one actor chosen right now, but that actor is Leonardo DiCaprio he's going to play Theodore Roosevelt.

    Personally I think it's a good choise a lot of people say that he was only chosen for this role because Scorsese is the director, but I think Leo is going to do a great job and he's going to portray Theodore really well.

    Thoughts?

    I can only image how they will butcher the historical information with this movie.

    Saw "The Aviator" recently. Another Scorsese/DiCaprio movie and I thought it was great. I don't see how this movie wouldn't be good.

    I'm definitely interested in seeing Leonardo DiCaprio play T.R. I'm constantly impressed with his acting skills.

    Aviator was a great movie, DiCaprio did an amazing job portraying Howard Hughes and I believe DiCaprio is going to do a great job in portraying Roosevelt.

    Personally Oxy I think there going to do a great job and tell his real life story, they won't butcher it, but thats my personal opinion.

    You didn't like "The Departed" or "Aviator"? Even "Gangs of New York" wasn't too bad. I really like Scorsese so I'm probably biased on opinion but I really like Dicaprio in his movies.

    I don't think they're going to butcher the history of it but it's definitely not going to exactly historically accurate. I think that can hurt movies sometimes, when they're completely accurate on real-life events. That's why I didn't like "The Zodiac" that much. It was more like a documentary as it progressed through the film and less like a movie.

    ...You said that you didn't like Scorsese's movies since he had started using Dicaprio. He's in "The Departed" and it's directed by Scorsese.

    To be more specific then, did you not like Dicaprio in "The Departed"?

    gangs of new york sucked.. aviator sucked.. the departed was the best movie since casino because it had good story-line, dicaprio didnt fit good, it was full of mobsters and cops and he looked like a fuckin white trash prince.. I dont like most of Scorses' new movies because they lack italian idtentity

    dicaprio sucks.. he should stick to making faggot movies like titanic or the beach

    i always hated dicaprio.. and when scorses (the best director in the business) started using dicaprio, im like.. "SHIT"

    DiCaprio is a very good actor, he's underrated in my opinion. He's played so many great roles like the one in Blood Diamond or Howard Hughes in The Aviator. He was also great in Basketball Diaries. Scorses is smart to pick him has his lead actor since he knows that DiCaprio will do an amazing job.
