Oh, industrious people–doing their best to make me look bad. Leonardo DiCaprio is a busy bee these days, making those of us lazy sloths look even lazier by comparison. But, I guess if I was making the kind of bank he does for being in movies, I’d be dancing like the Warner Bros. frog. “Hello my darling! Hello my baby! Hello my rag-time gal!” But seriously, Leo might want to cut down on the workload. He apparently is scheduled to be in fourteen films, which is a total of approximately $500 million dollars worth of studio budgets weighing on his shoulders. When asked by Hollywood Today how he decides what projects make the cut, Leo responded:
“That’s a good question! That’s what I’m dealing with right now (Laugh). I’m taking one thing at a time. I just finished a film called “Revolutionary Road” with Kate Winslett, directed by Sam Mendes. We shot that in New York and Connecticut. I just got back four days ago. And then, I’m gonna go work with Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe in Morocco on an untitled film. A film about CIA operatives, I’ll start that in a few months.”
And I like to imagine that somewhere, James Van Der Beek is saying to himself, “There goes the man who stole my career.” And a friend of James’ hears him, shakes his head and says, “No, James. No he didn’t.”
