Leonardo DiCaprio confirmed at a press conference over the weekend that he’s in talks for the biopic of famed FBI director J. Edgar Hoover according to Hitfix.
“I am talking to Clint Eastwood about playing J. Edgar Hoover who had his hand in some of the most scandalous moments in American history. Everything from the Vietnam war to and Dillinger to Martin Luther King and JFK. So, it’s about the secret life of J. Edgar Hoover” said DiCaprio.
One aspect many are wondering about is the film’s coverage of Hoover’s alleged homosexuality and cross-dressing. So will we see Leo in drag? “Will I wear a dress? Not as of yet. “No, we haven’t done the fitting for those. So, I don’t think so.”
