Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio is reportedly keen to portray former US President Theodore Roosevelt in a film based on his life. The 39-year-old actor reportedly wants to re-team with his The Wolf of Wall Street director Martin Scorsese for a biopic on the 26th President of the United States, reported Radar Online.

"Leo is telling friends that after his latest movie proved to be a massive box office hit, he's pushing forward with his biopic of Roosevelt which will re-team him with Martin Scorsese," a source said.

"He says it's 'now or never' as he's patiently waited almost a decade for the money to materialise," the source added.

Meanwhile, George Clooney's long-time spokesman has revealed that there are no apparent bad feelings between George Clooney and DiCaprio. When asked about the alleged feud between the Titanic star and the 52-year-old American actor, Stan Rosenfield said that it has been greatly exaggerated but there is 'no feud'.

Clooney had dissed DiCaprio during an interview last year.
