EW has learned exclusively that Armie Hammer is in talks to join Clint Eastwood and Leonardo DiCaprio‚Äôs upcoming J. Edgar Hoover biopic, which will now be called J. Edgar. In the film about the former FBI director, Hammer would play lawyer-turned-FBI-official ‚Äî and, some say, Hoover‚Äôs lover ‚Äî Clyde Tolson. Though the pair didn‚Äôt always agree on political tactics, Tolson remained a loyal friend and advisor to Hoover. It sounds like a juicy role that fits perfectly with Hammer‚Äôs combination of brawn and brains. Eastwood will direct from a script by Milk Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black.
