The actor will reportedly play villain Calvin Candie in Django Unchained, according to Creative Screenwriting's Jeff Goldsmith. Take a look at his tweet below.
"Casting Rumor: Leonardo DiCaprio WILL play villian Calvin Candie in Tarantino's Django Unchained! QT wanted him for I.B. & now has him! #fb"
Another tweet from Variety's Jeff Sneider indicates this is not confirmed, although he heard the same rumor last week.
This is just the latest casting rumor surrounding Django Unchained. A report from earlier this month revealed Will Smith is up for the Django role, a freed slave in the Old West who hires a German bounty hunter to find his missing wife. Samuel L. Jackson is reportedly circling the role of Calvin Candie's house slave, while Christoph Waltz may play the bounty hunter.
None of these casting rumors have been confirmed at this time for Django Unchained.
