    I didn’t know some people considered him supporting.

    Darlings, he was clearly supporting. DiCaprio was the only lead of the movie.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    I suppose it’s a situation like Judas this year where I would consider Dicaprio and DDL to be co-leads. Also, I know it’s not one of Scorsese’s most popular films but I absolutely love it. It was the first DDL performance I ever saw.

    Lead. I’ve never thought of him as supporting. The first 10 minutes of the film starts with him fighting Liam Neeson’s Priest Fall in before DiCaprio’s character is even an adult. Then he is the primary antagonist for DiCaprio the whole way through the movie.

    Super clear lead/co-lead.

    cases of category fraud – showy supporting bad guys (Hopkins in Lambs, Streep in Prada and Whitaker in Last King)

    Daniel Day-Lewis (Gangs of New York)

    Nom L, belonged in S

    Screen time: 28.82%

    Yet another antagonistic mentor role that is, like almost every other, supporting. Bill is a flashy, attention-grabbing character, but this isn’t his story.

    Trust me, it’s one of those classics constantly on cable that are more beloved by mainstream audiences rather than critics or certain cinephiles.
    Anyway, i think he’s Lead. DiCaprio’s Amsterdam Vallon is a Dickensian character who serves as a narrative lens, but DDL’s Bill The Butcher is the driving force of the story.
