Leo isn't the kid from Titanic any more. Ever seen the Departed or Blood Diamond? He is a hell of a good actor and has finally grown up. I think he would make a great Capt. is given a good script and director.

A few years ago, I was hoping for Mark Valley (Brad from "Boston Legal") but now I think he's a bit too old. He'd have been perfect about ten or so years ago.
Dicaprio is a bad choice. You need someone very "square jawed" to play Cap - (think of Schwarzenegger in his prime, only not Austrian and with blond hair) and he doesn't fit AT ALL. I actually can't think of any "name" actors who'd fit the bill here.
> I always felt that Howie Long had the look and build for Cap (back in the day), but you also need someone with Jackie Chan-esque agility.
