DiCaprio & Maguire Consider Youth Comeback???
Date: 27 June 2002
Kenneth Lonergan's This Is Our Youth finished its limited West End season at the Garrick Theatre earlier this month, but that doesn't mean it's lost its allure for young Hollywood hot shots wanting a crack at both the play and a West End debut. The three-hander's first glittering cast for its London run - Hayden Christensen, Jake Gyllenhaal and Anna Paquin - was only outshone for screen star power by its second one - Matt Damon, Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix. But those three may also be put in the shade if current rumours bear fruit. Apparently, the play may be heading back to our shores again with Titanic's Leonardo DiCaprio and current Spider Man Tobey Maguire keen to try their hands at playing young New York drug dealer Dennis and his bumbling friend Warren. Whether it actually happens - and what young starlet would fill out the new trio - remains to be seen.
