New York Magazine is reporting that legendary actor-director Clinton Eastwood is pursuing Joaquin Phoenix to play FBI director J. Edgar Hoover’s alleged lover in an upcoming biopic.
Leonardo DiCaprio has said he is considering playing the film’s lead.
If true, Phoenix would play the role of Clyde Tolson, Hoover’s alleged lover.
Speaking to reporters in June, DiCaprio said the film was about the “secret life” of Hoover, such as his involvement in the Vietnam war, and the lives of Martin Luther King and President John F. Kennedy.
In related news Joaquin Phoenix returned to the David Letterman show last night for the first time since his now infamous interview with the legendary talk show host.
