This intense film scene Leonardo DiCaprio called ‘one of the most memorable moments’ of his careerHollywood
The actor recalled one scene in particular where Jack spoke to Marty about how he didn’t think he was frightening enough. It was one of the table scenes, he claims
One of the greatest actors of Hollywood Leonardo DiCaprio has a lot of historic and brilliant scenes which we as viewers cannot pick and tell. Throughout his career, the Titanic star has been at the center of countless iconic scenes. However, the actor singled out a scene from the film The Departed, which was released 15 years ago, as one of the most unforgettable events of his life.
Billy Costigan, an undercover detective tasked with infiltrating an Irish gang in south Boston, was the actor’s third time working with Martin Scorsese on the crime drama. Scorsese cast Jack Nicholson in the role of gang leader Frank Costello, which resulted in the sequence that DiCaprio cherishes. In the one-on-one scene, Nicholson’s character informs Costigan that he accuses his gang of harbouring a rat.
In one of the interviews leading up to the film’s release, Dicaprio stated that there were several sequences in which he had no idea what was going to happen. The actor recalled one scene in particular where Jack spoke to Marty about how he didn’t think he was frightening enough. It was one of the table scenes, he claims. In terms of being an actor, it was one of the most unforgettable events of Discarpio as he states.
Jack Nicholson only had a brief appearance in the film, where he filmed his scenes and then left, but those were some of the most emotional moments Dicaprio has undoubtedly experienced. DiCaprio continues, There were some recollections that I will never forget as a human being, as a person.
Scorsese won his only Best Director Oscar for The Departed, a picture for which DiCaprio was reportedly denied a nomination because he refused to campaign against his co-stars. He was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar in the same year for Blood Diamond, but he lost to Forest Whitaker for The Last King of Scotland.
