He seems to be far to young an actor for the movie parts he seems to play in my opinion.
Howard Hughes, Herbert Hoover, etc~
He is still in fact a young actor~

How old of an actor would you prefer? You mentioned the man that FSF based the story on retired in his early 40s.
In regard to Hughes, he was 37 when WWII broke out in 1942, and just 23 when he directed his first movie.
Perhaps he was too young to play Hoover. I didn't see the movie so I don't know what period in his life it took place. I have to strongly disagree with you about the other two.

There was another film version starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. If I recall correctly they used a yellow Rolls phaeton in that one.

Drove an unrestored Packard Yellow 1935 V-12 Convertible Sedan (with the top down) across Dayton on Wednesday (in 5:00 rush hour traffic) and people nearly fell out of their cars looking - nothing beats the statement of Americans and their big yellow circus wagons !

And, imagine the impact that it had in 1935 with its Santa Barbara Peach farmer owner behind the wheel.

West~~~
Just MY opinion here about DeCaprio beig too young for these roles..

The Hoover film plot traced Hoovers FBI life unti his death.

The Hughes film's plot took place mostly in the after WW II era with the giant wood "Spruce Goose" transport seaplane, TWA airlines & Pam AM fight, Congressional hearings etc. and his early signs of mental illness & possible onset dementia.

The fictional Great Gatsby was based on a composite of several of F. Scott Fitzgeralds super wealthy society friends~~~ not just one person.

I remember seeing the original version that had Duesenbergs in it but that was many moons ago. The last movie we went to see and paid to see it was "Red Tails",a story of the Tuskeege airmen. I never really knew if Gatsby was fact or fiction or a composite character.
