Caprio - Leonardo Dicaprio To Play President Woodrow Wilson

LEONARDO DiCaprio is heading to the White House to portray America's 28th President Woodrow Wilson in a new biopic.

The Titanic actor will star in and produce a big screen adaptation of A. Scott Berg's recently released biography of Wilson, who was elected in 1912, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It is not known which aspect of Wilson's life the film will focus on, but the former governor of New Jersey and president of Princeton University was most famous for guiding the U.S. through World War I and suffering a stroke during his time in office.

He was also the last president to marry during his time at the White House. Wilson's first wife Ellen died in 1914, and he married Edith Galt in 1915.

DiCaprio is no stranger to portraying legendary Americans in film - he played eccentric tycoon Howard Hughes in 2004's The Aviator and won acclaim for his turn as longrunning Fbi director J. Edgar Hoover in 2011.
