Best Characters Played by Leonardo Dicaprio

I point here to the characters played ,not to the movies

The Top Ten

1 Billy Costigan (The Departed)

You cannot get a better performance from someone depicting a "troubled cop", always on the edge and insecurity written all over his face. His expressions in the movie and some of the scenes are out of this world. You have to look at all his scenes with Jack and Vera in the movie.

Not the best film he has been in but definitely his best performance

2 Cobb (Inception)

I would have voted for Jack Dawson, but Cobb is so much more of a deeper character. He blames himself for his wife's death, and is driven by a desire to be with his children. He has flaws, but tries to put these right

Just a really interesting person, like Indiana Jones, except more confusing. - booklover1

Couldn't have asked for a better sci-fi dream film

3 Jordan Belfort (The Wolf of Wall Street)

This is a great example of Leonardo DiCaprio's acting skill, because Jordan Belfort is such a jerk all throughout the movie and you hate his guts, but at the same time you love him just because of DiCaprio's masterful portrayal of the character.

4 Jack Dawson (Titanic)

I fell in love with DiCaprio when I saw that movie! Every girl wants to be in love with someone like Jack! Every girl wants to be loved by someone like him! Jack is the perfect guy! The guy who gives his life for his lover...

this is a great movie.
Although I didn't cry, I thought it was a very sad movie - Ajkloth

Just have to say I love this movie but it's not dicaprios very best. For example "Catch me if you can" is a better movie, but Jack Dawson is still his best character. No doubt

Brought every girl to tears - MatrixGuy

Great Performance. Nailed the accent. Built himself up and looks different for this part. Fascinating character and should have won the Oscar for this performance.

Did you know it's based on a real person. I love his character.

That man was awesome... I cannot believe that is a true story!

Frank is a real character! I love him! What he did... Wow...

9 Arnie Grape (What's Eating Gilbert Grape)

At the age of 19 he got an Oscar Nomination for supporting actor - MatrixGuy

He was great! He should have won the oscar for this role!
