Posted Monday December 9, 2013 7:38 PM GMT

Adding to his already stellar resume, Leonardo DiCaprio has partnered with Venturi Automobiles to field a car for the FIA Formula E Championship.

The "Great Gatsby" hunk's venture, if approved, will appear at the races beginning in September 2014 as part of the only racing series exclusively for electric cars.

Of Leo's continued efforts toward a cleaner future, he said the future depends on "fuel-efficient, clean-energy vehicles."

Races are to be held in Beijing, London and Los Angeles, among other venues.
