Leonardo DiCaprio taking lessons to sound like Frank Sinatra

Leonardo DiCaprio Frank Sinatra is taking singing lessons to sound like Frank Sinatra. Leo is hoping to portray the legendary Sinatra in a new biopic, but needs to prove to director Martin Scorsese he has the vocal talent to carry it off. “Leonardo has hired a top vocal coach to get him sounding like Sinatra. He is a massive fan of the singer and has always wanted to play him. He would be upset to miss out on the leading role because his singing wasn’t up to scratch. He is now in intensive vocal coaching lessons to replicate Sinatra’s distinctive style.” said a source.

However, Leonardo faces competition from stars including George Clooney, Justin Timberlake, Harry Connick Jr. and Jamie Foxx. It was recently claimed Jamie - who played jazz musician Ray Charles in Ray - is being lined up to portray the Rat Pack singer after film bosses saw similarities between the two stars’ backgrounds.

First Look: Renee Zellweger is New in Town


Maybe the Minnesota weather is to blame for Renee Zellweger’s disheveled hair last night…

In her upcoming romantic comedy, Renee plays a consultant from Miami with a temporary assignment in the Midwest state. Of course, it’s always nice to have a warm body around when you’re cold. Thankfully for the Oscar winner, Harry Connick, Jr. is there to keep her company.

New in Town - also starring and Frances Conroy - opens January 20.

Box Office Breakdown:  Knocked Up Delivers A Winner

Knocked Up

Viewers in dire need of some raunch helped make Knocked Up a strong 2nd this weekend.

Katherine Heigl’s stomach bumped past several family-friendly sequels of late and brought a fresh dose of adults-only fun into the box office.  Although it didn’t surpass the strong swashbucklers in Pirates, Knocked has already grossed enough money to cover its entire production budget.  Something few other movies on this list could probably say.  With strong word of mouth, director Judd Apatow (40 Year Old Virgin) may soon be adding another summer sleeper to his bedpost.

Box Office Breakdown:  Sparrow vs. Spidey

Pirates

Yo, ho…whoa.

As predicted, Captain Jack Sparrow’s resurrection raked in serious booty helping the Pirates franchise score another box office record.  The Memorial Day Weekend crown was snatched away from last year’s holder, X-Men: The Last Stand.

But one thing POTC: At World’s End did not do was take back the title for any three-day weekend.  It’s $139.8 million dollar domestic take fell a bit short from the $151 million raised by Peter Parker et al.

Other notables this week?  The impressive showing by Waitress.  The small movie, starring Keri Russell, has been receiving great reviews and viewers must be taking notice.  Ranking 5th in a busy holiday weekend is definitely something to be proud of.  And what about those Wild Hogs?  After exiting the Top Ten weeks ago, it made one final surge.  Apparently motorcycles, leather and holiday weekends go hand-in-hand.
