Everyone knows Leo DiCaprio deserves an Oscar.
His fans know it, his colleagues know it, his friends know it, his mom knows it. Even those people who don’t consider themselves DiCaprio’s big fans know it. (Thank the Internet with its constant memes!)
And finally, the moment has come when Leo DiCaprio gets a chance to win an Oscar. Actually, he gets ten chances to win it for “best actor” or “best supporting actor”, co-starring… himself.
It seems Leo has decided to play 24 (!) characters in one movie to get that damned Oscar for certain.
The Crowded Room is a new upcoming movie based on the book of Daniel Keyes. The Minds of Billy Milligan tells us the documented story of a man who suffered from a multiple personality disorder and was very nearly convicted of grievous crimes. Billy Milligan had 24 personalities in his head, and his lawyers were able to prove it was two of his alternative egos, not Billy himself, who committed all those robberies and rapes.
Yes, we know Leo is good, he can teach us many things, he will do his best to play this role and get (finally!) an Oscar for it. But the guys from Bid4Papers decided to help him, after all: they created the infographic describing ten core personalities of Billy Milligan. They believe the following ten personalities could be just what Leo needs to get an Oscar.
Being so different in sex, age, occupation, and interests, these ten personalities of Billy Milligan could confuse DiCaprio. Who knows, maybe Leo would use this infographic as a cheat sheet?
Here it goes.
10 Things (Characters?) That Will Help DiCaprio Get an Oscar
Just FYI: Billy Milligan was not a fiction but a real person. He had a number of personalities, ten of which were core (it seems Leo DiCaprio will play them all, and they all were described in the above-mentioned and below represented infographic) while 13 other personalities were undesirables. The 24th personality existed, too: The Teacher, the sum of all “people” put together, helped Billy deal with others, control them, their actions and thoughts.
We believe Leo will play ten core personalities, including Billy Milligan himself. For all fans who want to know the level of challenge accepted by DiCaprio, here goes the list, describing all ten personalities that will help Leo get that long-awaited Oscar:Bid4Papers website
Thanks to Daniel Keyes with his book and Leo DiCaprio with his upcoming movie, the world has got interested in the phenomenon of Billy Milligan and multiple personality. Google calls it a mental disorder. To make a long story short, if you are an MP (multiple personality), it means you are often controlled by multiple minds (personalities), and they all can have different age, gender, IQ, skills, memory, etc.
This phenomenon is real, it lives and shows us how little we truly understand how the brain works. It hides so many mysteries to reveal in future. MP looks and sounds like something unreal, and that is why this mental disorder captures so much attention, excitement, and imagination: people want to read about it, watch movies about it, and learn more facts about real-life people with this disorder.
Moreover, this phenomenon gives us a plenty of extraordinary ideas for storytelling.
- Are we all MPs?
- Is it possible for one alternative personality to be born or die within others?
- Should you be responsible for actions of other personalities from your head?
Every question is a new story. We are sure, Leonardo DiCaprio will do his best to show his vision of this story and get an Oscar. A long-awaited one. A truly deserved one. And ten personalities of Billy Milligan will help him do this.
By all means.
If not, he knows how to get over disappointments anyway.
