THIS IS ENGLAND star Stephen Graham's attempt to break Hollywood has received a boost from a famous pal - Leonardo Dicaprio.
The pair starred together in Martin Scorsese's 2002 movie Gangs of New York, and have remained friends ever since.
And the Titanic star was so blown away by Graham's performance in British drama This Is England, he's making sure Scorsese sees the film.
Graham, who plays racist thug Combo in the hard hitting movie, says, "I was meant to be in The Departed but it never happened for one reason or another, but I think I've got a good chance of being in the next one because Leonardo loved the film and told me he's going to show Scorsese it.
"I would love to work with Martin again. He used to call me the British Joe Pesci."
