Leonardo DiCaprio's Next Biopic: Steve Jobs?
Leonardo DiCaprio's "long, long break" could be ended by a juicy role: Steve Jobs.

With David Fincher leaving Sony Pictures' film about the Apple Computers co-founder, the Hollywood Reporter writes the studio is in talks with Danny Boyle to take his place.

Boyle reportedly has his sights on DiCaprio for the lead role should he take the helm. Boyle and Leo worked together in the past on The Beach.

The Beach
Danny Boyle's hit 2000 movie The Beach is to be adapted into a TV series.

The film, based on Alex Garland's bestselling novel, starred Leonardo DiCaprio in the tale of a group of tourists who set up home in a Thai paradise with disastrous consequences.

Andrew Miller, the man behind popular but short-lived teen series The Secret Circle, will write the script.

Q&A: Danny Boyle Talks 'Trainspotting' Sequel Plans With Original Cast, His Films, Plus Bonus Blu-ray Review

Danny Boyle

His amazing originality, ability to re-invent himself with each movie and sheer eclectic vibe of his body of work makes Boyle a filmmaking force to be reckoned with, bar none. One of his early calling cards is hitting glorious Blu-ray via Lionsgate on Sept. 13 in the form of one five-star "Trainspotting: Collector’s Edition" and I don’t mind saying not only does it look picture perfect, it’s chocked so full of extras that it might as well have been a box...

Breaking Bad
In a year that saw the writers strike bring forth more reality TV than we ever thought possible and reduce quality drama to a war of attrition, the boob tube still managed to deliver quality drama series at an impressive clip.

Unlike another suburban drug dealing series, the torpid "Weeds", "Breaking Bad" offers a modern-d...

The Best & Worst Films Of Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio
With such a talented actor like Leonardo DiCaprio, it's hard to find a dubbed "worst film" in his career. Yet, among all of Leo's great roles, there were a few that don't live up to par.

THE WORST

The Man in the Iron Mask

This was Leonardo’s first movie after his groundbreaking role in Titanic so most people expected a lot out of him. And although the movie made a profit, his performance wasn’t exactly riveting.

The Beach

Leonardo’s second movie after "Titanic" wasn’t well received either. Even the steamy sex scene didn’t push this movie into the best catego...
