First Look at Leonardo DiCaprio as J. Edgar Hoover in Clint Eastwood’s J. EDGAR

     February 9, 2011

Unofficial set photos have landed online of Leonardo DiCaprio as J. Edgar Hoover in Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar.  Obviously, this is from Hoover’s younger years as opposed to when he was older and had the face of an angry, wrinkled infant.  The film will explore Hoover’s closeted homosexuality and his relationship with Clyde Toulson (played by The Social Network‘s Armie Hammer).

Hit the jump to check out the set photos.  J. Edgar also stars Naomi Watts, Josh Lucas, Ed Westwick, Damon Herriman, and Judi Dench.

    Clint Eastwood movies lately always look good, but not necessarily the kind of good you pay money to see, so I’m happy I completely want to see this.
