  • Leonardo DiCaprio To Play King Herald?: Leonardo DiCaprio wants to portray historical figures. Besides showing interest in playing the mad monk Rasputin, Slashfilm reports that he’ll be portraying the Viking ruler in King Harald. He will also produce via his Appian Way banner. Norse King Harald III is regarded as the last great Viking king, whose death closed the viking age. He is most famous for leading Norway’s invasion of Denmark and also storming the shores of England in 1066. Word is that DiCaprio has been interested in this project for years. While he hasn’t been announced as the star of the film yet, chances are that if he wants the role he’ll get it. He’s Leo DiCaprio after all.
