After it emerged that Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio had a doppelganger, he’s now made his very own acting debut in a bizarre advert for Russian television. The ad that last just under a minute, is a strange but sort of wonderful tribute to the Hollywood actor, as we see lookalike Roman Burtsev, a 33-year-old security guard, assume a role that, without making direct reference to the ‘The Revenant’ star, gives us the clear indication that we’re seeing a version Leo.
It’s an often-mulled alternate ending to ‘Titanic’ - Rose helps freezing Jack up onto her bit of wood adrift in the icy North Atlantic, and they paddle off to happiness. Kate Winslet appears to be from this school of thought too. Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she discussed the fame that the James Cameron movie has afforded her, as well as the climactic and heartbreaking final scene with her doomed co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.
Not only did James Cameron go two months over schedule and £42m over budget, he was the subject of a cruel and potentially very dangerous prank. The image is actually mirrored, because Cameron is left-handed, unlike DiCaprio, who is right-handed.
