Leonardo DiCaprio as J. Edgar Hoover

Look it’s J. Edgar Hoover in the flesh! Okay it’s not, but it is Oscar-nominated actor Leonardo DiCaprio playing J. Edgar Hoover and that’s not to shabby either.

The picture shown above was taken from the set of J. Edgar the biopic penned by Dustin Lance Black and being directed by the uber-talented Clint Eastwood.

Also in the film (but not pictured) is co-star Armie Hammer who plays Clyde Tolson, Hoover’s right-hand man and bedfellow.

Also in the movie be sure to look for Judi Dence, Ed Westwick, Josh Lucas and Naomi Watts.

Hoover died in 1972 but you can see him come to life in theaters sometime in 2012.
