Jesse Plemons Will Star In The Lead Role Originally Written For Leonardo DiCaprio
Jesse Plemons is one of our best working actors. Thankfully, Hollywood is catching on. The actor was quick to impress with supporting turns in Breaking Bad, The Master, Observe and Report, Black Mass, Game Night, Vice, The Irishman, and Judas and the Black Messiah, while also providing strong lead performances in Other People, I’m Thinking of Ending Things, and Fargo Season 2 — to name only a few impressive roles.
Thus, Jesse Plemons is overdue to lead a major motion picture from one of our finest filmmakers, and he’ll finally get that opportunity with Killers of the Flower Moon, playing Tom White — a part once written for Leonardo DiCaprio, who will now play a supporting role. As THR reports, he reunites with Martin Scorsese after making the tough call between working with the revered auteur or collaborating with Jordan Peele on his latest film. Plemons will take over for DiCaprio after the producer’s interest shifted elsewhere, which we’ll discuss in just a bit.
