American actor Leonardo DiCaprio’s first role came with the 1990 pilot The Outsiders. His performances in the next two projects in the same year, the soap opera Santa Barbara and the sitcom Parenthood, earned him two nominations at the 12th Youth in Film Awards.

Much like Kendall’s L to the OG was met with a variety of reactions from fans and yet managed to become an unforgettable moment in the series, DiCaprio’s performance of DWYCK will be indeed remembered as one of the most surprising highlights of the night.
