Leonardo DiCaprio is the go-to actor for essentially any prestigious movie that's meant to connect with both audiences and critics, having worked with the biggest names in the game ― we're talking Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, James Cameron, Clint Eastwood. See? Everyone.

He’s played characters ranging from a nasty villain with a sweet tooth in Django Unchained to important historical figures like Howard Hughes and J. Edgar Hoover to one of the biggest names in American literature, the title character of The Great Gatsby (opening today!). One thing his roles have in common? Not a whole lot of them take place in the present.

Yep, it turns out that Leo is a big fan of the period piece, as he’s embodied characters who hail from at least four different centuries, from 17th century France to the pre-Civil War American South to the Wild West and, yes, a few more modern offerings. So in honor of his detour in the Roaring Twenties today, we decided to track Leo on his journey through time throughout his cinematic career... (in chronological order, of course).

Which of Leo's stops in history is your favorite?
