Leonardo DiCaprio Almost Played This ‘Star Wars’ Prequel Character

Leonardo DiCaprio Almost Played This ‘Star Wars’ Prequel Character

Did you know that Leonardo DiCaprio almost landed a role in the Star Wars prequels? Creator and director of the trilogy, George Lucas wanted the actor for a key role. The two did meet, but Leonardo DiCaprio, who was riding high on the success of Titanic at the time, ultimately decided to pass. Who did George Lucas want this super hot star to portray? You probably already guessed it. Yes, Leonardo DiCaprio almost played Anakin Skywalker, the future Darth Vader.

When it comes to casting Star Wars, the franchise has always gravitated towards unknown and mostly untested talent. Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced the world to Daisy Ridley and John Boyega these past few weeks, with the pair leading an ensemble cast of old and new characters alike. The original did the same, with A New Hope putting the mostly unknown at the time Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford on the world stage. The prequel trilogy also worked at this notion as well. While Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor and Natalie Portman were fairly familiar to audiences back in 1999, fans first met the completely unknown Jake Lloyd as a very young Anakin. And then the equally unknown at the time actor Hayden Christensen took over the older version of Anakin in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones.
