Earlier this week we brought you the first photos from Clint Eastwood’s upcoming biopic J. Edgar. They featured Oscar nominee Leonardo DiCaprio as the title character, and he was dressed from head to toe in 1940′s garb. Today more paparazzi shots have made their way online and they feature Armie Hammer and Judi Dench. Take a look…
J. Edgar will cover the head of the FBI and his reign from its creation in 1935 to his death in 1972. The film will be produced by Brian Grazer and has a script written by Oscar winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk). The film stars DiCaprio, Naomi Watts, Ed Westwick, Josh Lucas, Damon Herriman, and Ken Howard.
Hammer plays lawyer-turned-FBI-official Clyde Tolson, whom was also rumored to be Hoover’s lover. This was the role that Joaquin Phoenix was speculated to play. Tolson was the associate director of the FBI from 1947 to 1972. He was in daily close contact with Hoover at the office and the pair often dined, socialized in night clubs, and even vacationed together.
Dench will star as Hoover’s mother Anne Marie, and as you can see from these photos he’s very close to her.
