Terence Winter, the scribe behind popular HBO series, “Boardwalk Empire,” is reportedly eyeing Leonardo DiCaprio for a role on the series. However, Winter has yet to man up and ask DiCaprio. Winter recently worked with DiCaprio on the forthcoming film, Wolf of Wall Street, and when asked by The Wrap if he’d like to have DiCaprio play a part in the gangster show, he said he’d jump at the chance.
“That would be awesome,” Winter told TheWrap. “I never even thought to ask him because he’s so unbelievably busy. That was his fourth movie in a row and I believe he was going to take some time off, so that wasn’t even a possibility. But God, if he would ever do it? I obviously would welcome that. We got Martin Scorsese to do it. Why not?”
Winter added, “Whatever you can do to get that happen, I would welcome the help.”
