First there was Madonna, then Gwyneth Paltrow. Now, Leonardo DiCaprio and his buddy Tobey Maguire may follow them to London's West End to resurrect Kenneth Lonergan's This Is Our Youth, the hit play currently on hiatus, Variety reports.

If Maguire and DiCaprio sign with the producers, the two actors would head up the cast for a late-autumn return of the play, which focuses on three Manhattan slackers during the Reagan era. Natalie Portman and Kirsten Dunst are rumored to be interested in the female lead.

By taking the London stage, these actors would be following the lead of other hot, young Hollywood actors who have been in Youth, including Hayden Christensen and Jake Gyllenhaal (who performed the play in March) and Matt Damon and Casey Affleck (who performed it in May).
