The cast list of Clint Eastwood’s biopic “J. Edgar” got a bit of a shake-up today as Charlize Theron is no longer in contention to play Hoover’s life-long secretary Helen Gandy in the film.
Theron has officially signed on to do Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman”, taking herself out of the running for “J.Edgar”. Eastwood however has already moved on and is now considering both Naomi Watts (“Fair Game”) and Amy Adams (“The Fighter”) for the role reports Deadline.
“Gossip Girl” star Ed Westwick has also joined the cast today as Agent Smith, the man hired to write the biography of Hoover (Leonardo Di Caprio).
