Leonardo DiCaprio Tapped For Rasputin Role

Is Leo's Summer of Fun Coming to an End?

Is Leo's Summer of Fun Coming to an End?

Leonardo DiCaprio was back in the stands at Roland Garros Stadium as a spectator at the French Open finals in Paris yesterday. He had his pal Lukas Haas next to him to watch Rafael Nadal beat David Ferrer on the court. Leo and Lukas have been popping up in the crowd together throughout the tournament and took in the semifinals earlier in the weekend. While Leo was overseas, he made headlines in Hollywood for reportedly taking on the role of Rasputin in an upcoming biopic, which was recently acquired by Warner Bros.

The news of his latest big-screen undertaking may come as a surprise since Leo announced last month that he was planning on taking a break from acting. He said, "I am a bit drained. I'm now going to take a long, long break. I've done three films in two years and I'm just worn out." After completing his press duties for The Great Gatsby and wrapping up shooting on his upcoming film The Wolf of Wall Street, Leo has taken advantage of his downtime so far. He's been relaxing on his current European Summer tour, which included sightseeing around Paris with his new rumored girlfriend, Toni Garrn, last week.
