"Leonardo DiCaprio has reportedly hired a vocal coach to teach him to sing in a bid to win the role of Frank Sinatra in Martin Scorsese's upcoming biopic.
"That pounding you hear is Sinatra, angrily beating on the inside of his casket. And don't think hecan't get out.
"The actor, who has previously worked with Scorsese on the Howard Hughes biopic "The Aviator," is said to be training with a voice expert to learn how to mimic the late crooner. A source told British newspaper The Sun, "Leo 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 sick 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."
"Yeah, because it's just that easy.
"DiCaprio will have to work hard, as Johnny Depp and Harry Connick Jr. have also been mentioned for the part."
