Clint Eastwood Wants Joaquin Phoenix in J. Edgar Hoover Biopic

Posted: September 22nd, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Clint Eastwood Wants Joaquin Phoenix in J. Edgar Hoover BiopicSubmit Comment
Now that Joaquin Phoenix is no longer crazy, he is going back to work and Clint Eastwood is already in talks with him to star in the upcoming biopic of J Edgar Hoover, the controversial FBI director who founded the organization in 1935 and remained director until his death in 1972.

The plan is to sign Leonardo DiCaprio to play Hoover and for Phoenix to play Clyde Tolson, the associate director of the FBI from 1947 to 1972. The two men not only worked together, but also dined, socialized in night clubs, and even vacationed together.

The pair never admitted to being gay, but Hoover's actions in death seem to suggest that the two men were more than just friends. When Hoover died, Tolson was not only the beneficiary of his life-insurance policy, but also inherited his estate and moved into his house. At Hoover's funeral, he accepted the US flag draped over Hoover's coffin, and today, Tolson's grave is a few yards from Hoover's in the Congressional Cemetery.

@vdodson
I don't think either of them were reluctant in their love for eachother.

Well they got a good director, two very good actors..me thinks Oscars are going to be polished (I don't mean any kind of Gay term there).

J Edgar Hoover : Slobbering knobs with his best bud since 1935. Makes you wonder if Tolson went dress (and panties) shopping with Hoover, so he could make sure his friend " always looked his best ".

Sex In The City, starring J Edgar Hoover.

Phoenix should play Hoover. Leo should steer clear of this one.

Does a cleft lip help or hurt fellating Leo? Does Leo care, or is he just happy to not have to pretend he's straight anymore?

Tolson's grave is a few yards from Hoover's --- connected with a c*ck-tunnel.

PS: where EXACTLY is Hoover's grave? I need to take a big, runny, steaming sh*t!

As for the subject of the movie... Hoover... what a c*nt!

But Clint is probably on Oscar track with this.

And Lohan is a skanky, whore.

The fact that we are going to film J Edgar Hoover's story without him being an egotisitcal, faggy, atagonistic and arhorrant tickturd of a human being is a waste of digital film.

I hope they have the deleted scenes in the DVD, where Hoover does the reach around, while teaching young agents how to frisk their criminal, cupping balls and working the shafts, while interrogating them, that fagella.

Hoover smoked more 'cigars' than the whole country of Cuba.

Clint should've cast Joaquin as Robert Kennedy, finding Marilyn's skidmarked panties and FBI bugs in his apartment during his Presidential run.

Why does the media always say these people have gone crazy when they take some time off? Phoenix, Dave Chappelle

Theyre just eccentric people.
