Will Joaquin Phoenix Make Out with Leonardo DiCaprio in New J. Edgar Hoover Movie? 


Back in June, we told you that Leonardo DiCaprio was closed to signing a deal with Warner Bros. for the planned J. Edgar Hoover biopic by director Clint Eastwood (See Leonardo DiCaprio IS J. Edgar Hoover -- the Crossdressing Crime Fighter!).

Now, there's a big rumor going around that Joaquin Phoenix is the top choice by Eastwood to star as Hoover's paramour and protégé, Clyde Tolson. Supposedly, Hoover and Tolson had a questionable relationship (codeword: gay). The pair socialized and vacationed together, and when Hoover passed away, Tolson was the beneficiary of Hoover's estate. The script is written by "Milk's" Dustin Lance Black so I can't wait to see the Academy Award-winning scribe's take on the ambiguously gay duo.

I think it's a perfect casting choice for both DiCaprio and Phoenix, the actor who fooled us all with "I'm Still Here."
