>>> Lot of you flew with leo over the weekend as "catch me if you can." Me plays frank abagnale. Frank admitted to me he wasn't sure if leo could pull off the role. What's it like to say leonardo is playing me i a movie?
>> First time i thoughtim, i thought maybe he wouldn't be suave enough to play the role, the character.
>> I'd like to take you out for a steak dinner.
>> Reporte leo, not swauv enough? He personifies suave as the slickster frank abagnale.
>> I was immediately impressed with him.
>> I was struck by how engaging frank is as a person.

For two days he followed me around with a recorder and his notebook, from morning til night. Never had it off. If i scratched my leg, he said, why are you doing that? He'd watch my mannerisms. So i knew when i left there that he was so in to playing this part, he wanted to make sure he did it so well.
>> It's been a while since i
done this. Ich one is the jump again?
>> Studied him.
>> You immediately filled with this immense amount of trust for him. His innocence as a school teacher. This is why he was able to do what he did.

>> Everybody was like, tell us another one.
>> He came in and started telling stories and this spontaneous lunch break happened and the entire cast and crew was sitting around like it was a seminar or something like that. Steven came back on and said, what's going on here? We just finished lunch. That's the kind of force. He's a force of nature.
>> Reporter: Steven concurs with leo. He just hopes this true tale doesn't inspire any frank wannabes.
>> Keep it in per speck tifR. Only one man ever achieved this. He was caught eventually. So don't try this on your local bank.
