Leo DiCaprio & Dustin Lance Black Hook Up for Hoover

Leonardo DiCaprio is in negotiations to play FBI director J. Edgar Hoover in the new drama Hoover, directed by Clint Eastwood and written by Dustin Lance Black (Milk).

“It sounds interesting to say the least,” the 35-year-old actor tells EW. “There’s no contract, no anything, but I’m a huge fan of Clint’s.”

The flick would follow Hoover from founding of the FBI in 1935 to his long tenure as director of the crime-fighting organization. He was reportedly a cross-dresser and a homosexual. It will be very interesting to see how Black writes that (if at all) into the script.
