Joaquin Phoenix to Play Leonardo DiCaprio's Lover?

Joaquin Phoenix is the top choice to play the lover to Leonardo DiCaprio‘s J. Edgar Hoover in the Clint Eastwood directed biopic, Hoover.

With a script by Milk‘s screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, Hoover explores the relationship between Hoover and his reputed paramour and protégé, Clyde Tolson. None of the deals have yet to be finalized, according to New York Magazine.

Casey Affleck recently told Jay Leno that while people claimed to be worried about Joaquin during the filming of his documentary-esque film I’m Still Here, that was not the case. “While it was happening, people were happy just to mock him,” he said.
