Leonardo DiCaprio To Play Multiple Personalities In ‘The Crowded Room’

leo

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leonardo DiCaprio is set to play a role he’s eyed for nearly 20 years – that of Billy Milligan,  a man with 24 different personalities and the subject of Daniel Keyes’ 1981 nonfiction book “The Minds of Billy Milligan.” The book is being adapted for the screen by Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg. DiCaprio will also produce ‘The Crowded Room’ through his Appian Way shingle alongside Jennifer Davisson and New Regency’s Alexandra Milchan. Keyes’ book is described as follows:

Out of control of his own actions, Billy Milligan was a man tormented by twenty-four distinct personalities battling for supremacy over his body — a battle that culminated when he awoke in jail, arrested for the kidnap and rape of three women. In a landmark trial, Billy was acquitted of his crimes by reason of insanity caused by multiple personality — the first such decision in history — bringing to public light the most remarkable and harrowing case of multiple personality ever recorded.

Legendary Actor Leonard Nimoy, Who Played Mr Spock On ‘Star Trek,’ Dies Aged 83

Leonard Nimoy

Beloved actor, film director, poet, singer and photographer Leonard Nimoy has passed away at age 83 due to complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nimoy died this morning at his Bel Air home, as confirmed by his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy. Nimoy had a long career as both an actor and director. However, he was best known for his portrayal of the half-human, half-Vulcan character Spock in the original ‘Star Trek’ series, and in multiple film, television and video game sequels. He played the iconic character since 1966 and was the only actor from the original series to return for J.J. Abrams’ recent film versions.

Nimoy’s final tweet was exceptionally poignant: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.” He signed off with “LLAP” – a reference to his character’s famous catchphrase, “Live long and prosper”.
