Before Leonardo DiCaprio was an actor, he used to distribute comic book titles, but his skills as an actor became obvious to his parents, and they signed him up with a talent agent very early on. First, he received roles in TV series like Roseanne (1988) and The New Lassie (1989), but those went unnoticed. The year 1991 changed his career path for the better, as he starred in a horror movie called Critters 3 (1991), as that got him more attention from the producers.

Specifically from the showrunners of the TV sitcom Growing Pains (1985) that cast him, albeit for a short time. It helped Leonardo DiCaprio grow as an actor, taking diverse roles, often of troubled individuals that have to confront their past, like in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993) and The Quick and the Dead (1995). That type continued throughout his career, he often played characters that go through some big loss in life, and end up traumatized and depressed. However, it was the role of Jack Dawson in Titanic (1997) that really skyrocketed Leonardo DiCaprio in Hollywood, winning hearts of female audience all over the world, and ultimately breaking them when (SPOILER ALERT), he dies.

In his professional life, he’s doing three movies, and the information is released for one of them – The Black Hand (2018). It’s about a police officer trying to go against an American-Italian gang in New York, which is based on a book by the same name written by Stephen Talty. The other one is Killers of the Flower Moon, although the release date isn’t known at the moment, we know it’s directed by Martin Scorsese, who Leo usually works with.
