This is a project that's picking up tremendous steam! Clint Eastwood's biopic of the FBI founding father, J. Edgar Hoover. First, we told you Leonardo DiCaprio is joining the project in the titular role, now, we're hearing that "The Social Network's" Armie Hammer, and Charlize Theron are boarding the Hoover biopic as well! (Check out my interview with Armie Hammer for "The Social Network")
Hammer, who did an amazing job playing both Winklevoss twins in David Fincher's "The Social Network," will play Hoover's paramour, protege, and gasp, lover (!!!), Clyde Tolson. I think he and Leo will make a good couple don't you think? And Theron has been offered the role of Justice Department file clerk Helen Gandy. She worked with Hoover for more than five decades.
Oh, and EW.com is reporting that the title of the film is now, "J. Edgar." The script is written by Academy Award-winner, Dustin Lance Black ("Milk").
