Leonardo Dicaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio is reportedly set to play J. Edgar Hoover in a Clint Eastwood directed biopic according to Deadline.com.

The bio-pic was written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black who wrote the screenplay for Milk.

If all goes as planned Leo will team up with Eastwood for the first time and given Leo’s excellent ability to take on characters from the past such as Howard Hughes in The Aviator, it should be a good match.

What do you think can Leo be convincing at the one-time head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation? Here’s a pic of Hoover, you be the judge.
