"Is It Just Me?"

Or has Leonardo DiCaprio grown into a singularly humorless actor?  Take the trailer for Inception, which looks gorgeous, and pretentious as hell:

He just looks dull.  I’m much more intrigued by Ellen Page’s appearance in the movie, since she appears to have a sense of wonder and a smile left.  I feel like DiCaprio may have had that once upon a time, at least when it came to spotting Claire Danes at a Venice Beach party. But not any longer, and it seems like a real missing ingredient in his acting career.   Clooney, for one, knows you have to laugh or the hurt won’t seem real when it comes.
