Sweet talk and boyish good looks will get you anywhere...just ask real-life conman Frank Abagnale Jr. In one of his more lighthearted roles, DiCaprio brings this infamous check forger to life alongside director Steven Spielberg and co-star Tom Hanks.
In the span of two hours, DiCaprio plays a doctor, an airline pilot, a professor and a politician, which are just a few of the identities Abagnale assumed during his five-year crime spree. This role earned DiCaprio a Golden Globe nomination, and we can see why. If Abagnale was half as charming as DiCaprio made him seem, count us among the conned.
