Leonardo DiCaprio is heading to the White House to portray this nation's 28th President Woodrow Wilson in a new biopic.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 38 year-old actor will star in and produce a big screen adaptation of  A. Scott Berg's recently released biography of Wilson, who was elected in 1912.

It is not known which part of Wilson's life the movie will focus on, however the former governor of New Jersey and president of Princeton University was most famous for guiding the U.S. through World War I and suffering a stroke during his time in office.

He was also the last president to marry during his time at the White House. Wilson's first wife Ellen died in 1914, and he married Edith Galt in 1915.

Leonardo is no stranger to portraying legendary Americans in film, he played eccentric tycoon Howard Hughes in The Aviator and won acclaim for his turn as long running FBI director J. Edgar Hoover in 2011.
