Leonardo DiCaprio to star with Saskatchewan's Isaiah Tootoosis in The Revenant
Isaiah Tootoosis had no idea who Leonardo DiCaprio was when his aunt brought him to a movie audition in Calgary.
The seven-year-old lives on the Poundmaker First Nation, west of North Battleford. He and his cousin were playing at a hockey tournament when a friend suggested they attend an open call for First Nations actors in Calgary.
The audition took 15 minutes. Within days, they learned Isaiah would be playing Leonardo DiCaprio's son in The Revenant.
