DiCaprio To Play Teddy Roosevelt

But what aspect of TR’s full life will be dramatized by Scorsese and his writer? Ken Burns has already given the President an in-depth treatment, and a TV miniseries is better-suited to story development. All the same, Spielberg’s “Lincoln” was commendable, so perhaps “TR” (they can’t just call the movie “Roosevelt”) will be, too. Though I doubt Leo can top Brian Keith’s portrayal of TR in the 1975 “The Wind and the Lion, pictured below left.”
