I guess its true that Leonardo DiCaprio hasn’t cracked a smile on screen in about a hundred years. Or so it seems, especially if you’ve been loyally heading out to the multiplexes for all his recent films, including, of course, “Inception,” which has exactly one good joke in the entire movie, coming when one of its characters asks, “Whose subconscious are we going into exactly?”
So I suspect my colleague, Times film critic Betsy Sharkey, has found plenty of people who agree with her provocative piece in today’s paper, which is succinctly headlined: “Lighten up, Leo!” (I’ve added the exclamation point, because, well, I knew that’s what Betsy really had in mind.) After citing all of DiCaprio’s ultra-serious movies from the past few years, Sharkey says: “Suffice it to say that there are more than enough dark endeavors to turn that deep worry line already etching its way between his brows into a veritable chasm. Besides, wouldn’t it be nice to see DiCaprio’s dazzling smile, the one that crinkles those aquamarine eyes so winningly, on something besides the Jumbotron at Lakers games?”
But why is DiCaprio so intent on starring in such dark films? And why, as Sharkey wonders, is he so reluctant to play a sexy rake or charming conman, as he did in “Titanic” and “Catch Me If You Can”? I think the answer is pretty obvious, especially if you look at the two actors who clearly had the biggest influence on DiCaprio’s career–Robert De Niro and Johnny Depp. As it turns out, DiCaprio, who turns 36 in November, isn’t really taking a career path that’s so different from other gifted actors at his age, notably De Niro and Depp. When you’re young, especially as an actor or a musician, you’re often obsessively curious about the dark corners of the world–it feels like going for laughs is a betrayal of your gifts as an artist.

While Inception was No.1 for 3 consecutive weeks, the Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg comedy “The Other Guys” debuted on top of the weekend box office, taking in $35.6 million. While Inception took No.2 with $18.6 million for a total domestic gross so far of $227.7 million since premiering in July.
Barring some dramatic turning of the tide, DiCaprio is now secure in his place as Hollywood’s unimpeachable golden boy, while Cruise, the previous incumbent, is in danger of resembling the court jester. On paper, the pair still occupy similar territory. They aren’t separated by much more than age (Cruise is 12 years older than DiCaprio) and a few million dollars. With two legitimate recent hits behind him in Shutter Island and Inception, DiCaprio can expect $28m per movie, while Cruise is still able to command $22m a throw. (Forbes magazine notes that “Cruise’s career has been rocky lately”, but attributes his ongoing fortune to revenue from “a string of older hits that constantly play on TV”.) Both men have sought out many of the same directors including Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg; DiCaprio is also close friends with Michael Mann, who cast Cruise in a rare bad-guy role in Collateral.
