First Photo of Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar Hoover Biopic

Posted: August 12th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
First Photo of Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint EastwoodSubmit Comment
Entertainment Weekly unveiled the first official photo of Leonardo DiCaprio as J Edgar Hoover in Clint Eastwood's upcoming biopic of the controversial FBI director. The movie is set to hit theaters on November 8th, Check out the photo below.

Hoover founded the FBI in 1935 and remained director until his death in 1972. Armie Hammer (The Social Network) is on board as 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.

Cracked said it once, if you want an Oscar you have three ways to do it: 1) Heavy make-up that makes you look like sh*t. 2) Act like a retard (not full) and magic number 3) Go gay, that sh*t always works.

1) He doesn't f*cking resemble Hoover in any way whatsoever. Or Howard Hughes by the way.

2) Hoover was a miserable piece of sh*t who harassed, imprisoned and killed countless innocent people. Also, he was a f*cking crossdresser. He doesn't deserve a f*cking tombstone, much less a film.

Leonardo Dicaprio is America's top Paid Actor?

No sh*t,no wonder America's in crisis,and even Mark Whalberg's salary is about 20mil a movie

I've seen better acting at an elementary schoolplay in the Projects

From what I've read of the script, which was not a lot on purpose, I believe the film is going to discredit Hoover and his actions. Could be wrong though. But in case that's true, I think it would be interesting to see DiCaprio as a shady character having people "harassed, imprisoned and killed" as Avirex pointed out.

Said shady character, cuz I can guarantee Eastwood will definitely portray him in a sympathetic light at the same time. But obviously reality as we all know is often played around with when it comes to films and TV.
