However, his recent movies that were received warmly by the public have shown impressive growth in ticket sales, making him the highest-earning actor in the industry today. His movies have also won several awards including Best Picture and Best Director.
Leo’s first major break in Hollywood was his role in the award winning film, Mafia Wars. This film was based off the book of the same name, written by Kevin Dunn. It was intended to be a biopic on organized crime, focusing on the history of the Italian-American organized crime boss, Donnie familial. DiCaprio played David Kleinfeld, the ruthless head of a large family that owns a major criminal organization.
Another of Leo’s films that was highly praised was his turn as Al Pacino in the movie Meet the Parents.

Another great performance that DiCaprio received for his role in the film was his turn as Vinnie Barbarino in the film Casino. This film, which was released in 1997, was well received by critics and won the Oscar for Best Actor in a Drama or Comedy category. This role also marked DiCaprio’s return to playing a family man with a conscience.
Though he was already an established actor with his turn in The Godfather, his breakout role would be his performance in the film Scarface. He would play the title role of an aging Cuban exile who becomes a drug lord. DiCaprio played the part quite well, perhaps best known for his unforgettable role of Tony Montana. This character was so well known that even President Bill Clinton had to read the lines for his own pleasure during their debate.
Of course, everyone knows about his collaborations with Bill Murray. They were known for their comedy duo, known for such movies as Murray’s Scrooged and Don’t Take Me Alive.
