I think Di Caprio will do fine. The last few peformances of his that I've seen were really surprisingly good. I'll need to re-read TBGB.

Subject: RARA-AVIS: Leonardo DiCaprio IS Travis McGee
I came across this in Shelf Awareness, a daily e-newsletter for people in the book industry.
Movies: The Deep Blue Goodbye
Fans of John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee novels will be pleased to learn that The Deep Blue Goodbye has been adapted for Leonardo DiCaprio. Variety reported that Peter Chernin joins DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson-Killoran as "producers on a project that has a strong draft by Dana Stevens (For Love of the Game) that is drawing interest from directors. Amy Robinson is also involved in a producing capacity."
I know DiCaprio has come a long way from the sort of roles I automatically imagine him in. He's not the teen pinup pipsqueak of yore.
But Travis McGee? Really?
Well, at least this ought to bring some of John D.'s work back into print.
