Leonardo DiCaprio has already made it clear that despite his long term love affair with Scorsese he isn’t exclusive. But word says he is seeing someone new, and that might be another old leathery man. Leo will be staring in a biopic of J Edgar Hoover for Clint Eastwood.
Deadline this morning have confirmation that Leonardo DiCaprio will be playing J Edgar Hoover in Clint Eastwood’s upcoming biopic.
Hoover was a founder of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and its director from 1935 until his death in 1972. He’s usually credited with making the FBI the juggernaut law-enforcement agency it is today, and with instituting key developments like central fingerprinting and forensic laboratories.
DiCaprio can do no wrong by me and anything he is in, I have complete faith will rock.
A biopic about J Edgar Hoover sounds like a snooze fest. The guy was as exciting as watching roofers on their lunch break. But for some reason, Eastwood at the helm and DiCap in the lead, and I am all interested.
