Ed Westwick: Leonardo DiCaprio's Biographer in 'J. Edgar'

Ed Westwick will play the role of Agent Smith in the upcoming biopic J. Edgar, which will star Leonardo DiCaprio as J. Edgar Hoover, according to Deadline.

The 23-year-old Gossip Girl actor will play a clean cut operative with writing skill who Hoover hires to write his biography, until the agent gets a little too close to the truth.

Leo and Ed will be joined by the previously announced Armie Hammer as Hoover’s secret lover.

While Charlize Theron was rumored to join the cast, she dropped out and director Clint Eastwood is looking at Amy Adams and Naomi Watts for the role.
