Leonardo DiCaprio Perhaps Our Last Great Viking King
You see Leonardo DiCaprio with his little phantom goatee and you just can't help think "great Viking king." And now the actor may at last be declaring his Nordic manliness perched atop the throne of King Harald. Deadline reports he will if nothing else produce the project, pitched by Mark L. Smith as a possible starring vehicle for DiCaprio. He'd play Harald Hardrada, the exiled, 11th century Norwegian king whose death is often used to mark the end of the Viking Age, when helmets with little horns became passé. The film is being described as something akin to Braveheart, though it is still in early writing stages. It's possible the tone could change by the time this is turned into a Hägar the Horrible movie.
