Hot on the heels of a Golden Globe win and an Oscar nomination for his lead role in Martin Scorsese's cocaine- and stripper-riddled dark comedy The Wolf of Wall Street, Hollywood mainstay Leonardo DiCaprio is looking to add another vice to his list of proficiencies. This past weekend, the actor was spotted in the audience of the Broadway musical A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder at the Walter Kerr Theatre with girlfriend Toni Garrn.

Featuring a book and lyrics by Robert L. Freedman and music by Steven Lutvak, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder tells the story of Monty Navarro (Bryce Pinkham), who has received the news that he is descended from a noble family and could become the next Earl of Highhurst. There are only eight issues standing in his way: the other heirs (all played by Jefferson Mays) who precede him in line for the title. What does Monty choose to do? Eliminate them, of course.

Including this year's nomination for The Wolf of Wall Street, DiCaprio is a four-time Oscar nominee, having also received Oscar nods for What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Aviator, and Blood Diamond, but so far he hasn't won. What could he be plotting at Broadway's most uproarious murder-themed musical? We don't want to speculate, but Matthew McConaughey and Christian Bale should probably be watching their backs.
