Leonardo DiCaprio has played some of the best roles in the best films but is still getting screwed over by the people behind the Oscars. This role sounds like it could be the one that gets him that win.
DiCaprio will be playing the part of Billy Milligan in the upcoming ‘The Crowded Room’. The reason this will stand out so much, is because by playing this one role, he will actually cover 24 different personalities.
This sounds pretty crazy and the story behind Billy Milligan it just that… CRAZY! Billy became “famous” in the late 70’s, when his court case became big news.
He was diagnosed with multiple personality disorder, and his legal team claimed that two of his alternate personalities committed the crimes (rape and armed robbery), and he had no idea.
According to FanSided: Twenty-four people live inside Billy Milligan.
Philip, a petty criminal; Kevin, who dealt drugs and masterminded a drugstore robbery; April whose only ambition was to kill Billy’s stepfather; Adalana, the shy, lonely, affection-starved lesbian who “used” Billy’s body in the rapes that led to his arrest; David, the eight-year-old “keeper of pain”; Arthur, the Englishman; Ragen, the “keeper of Rage” who possessed incredible strength; Allen, the con man; Tommy, the escape-artist, and all of the others, including men, women, several children, both boys and girls, and the Teacher, the only one who can put them all together. Each of these “people” play a distinct role in this often shocking true story.
