Very often, actors will go through incredible transformations in order to achieve the desired look for a role.

It could be something as simple as dying their hair a different colour or it can go all the way up to gaining a huge amount of weight to fit the role. Seriously, when we first saw this image, we had to do a double-take because we genuinely thought Leonardo DiCaprio was piling on the pounds for a new role.

As it turns out, it's not Leonardo DiCaprio starring in a biopic of the life and times of John Candy, but just a Russian guard who works in the Ministry of Internal Security in Moscow.

The as-yet unnamed guard does bear a striking resemblance to Leonardo DiCaprio, who is understood to have Russian grandparents on his mother's side. Could they be related? Quite possibly, although Russia's a big place.

If anyone sees another security guard who looks like Kate Winslet, aim her towards this guy.
