To promote The Basketball Diaries from 1995, the young star went on Letterman. Young DiCaprio is just a rare endeavoring kind and the clip here is just a subtle demonstration of this fact. In the film he plays Jim Carroll, the Irish Catholic street kid from New York who was 13 years old in 1963 when he began writing a diary about shooting hoops and heroin. Carroll went on to shake his drug habit and to write poetry, form a rock band, but it was the publication of The Basketball Diaries that drew praise from the likes of Jack Kerouac and made Carroll a cult figure.
