Leonardo DiCaprio in 'J. Edgar' - Sneak Peek!

Check out this sneak peek of Leonardo DiCaprio in his upcoming film, J. Edgar!

The Clint Eastwood-directed drama stars the 36-year-old actor as J. Edgar Hoover, the man who oversaw the creation of the FBI.

“To me, it’s really a story of how absolute power corrupts absolutely,” Leo told EW, which posted the pic as one of its “25 Fall Movies We Can’t Wait to See.”

“He was always an outsider,” Leo added.

J. Edgar also stars Josh Lucas, Naomi Watts, Ed Westwick, and Armie Hammer, who takes on the role of J. Edgar’s rumored lover Clyde Tolson.

    About his work and not his fake relayshes. Good JJ

  • LadyCaca

    It looks like he has something in his mouth (like Brando in the Godfather) and also he’s wearing lenses.

    Nice job to make him look like the character.

    prediction: Leo will be amazing but movie will be a disappointment at the box office.

  • susieque

    6 hours of make up to make him look the way he always does.. Really.

    And his head looks like a Klingon on Star Trek. He wants an Oscar so bad. Problem is he never changes as a character. Same expressions all the time.

    He should stop wanting the Oscar.. maybe he and Blake will walk the RC together.. NO he is such a Man child. Justin B and Selena act more mature. Grow up Leo. You are 36. if you like the woman then act like it. He had no problem being all visible with the models. Besied Black is only 23.. she should be with someone younger. Leo is just like George C.. Men children that will never grow up.

    Run Blake before he breaks your heart. I love how the women he use to date went on to find good relationships with MEN and some even had children.

  • yes

    Give the man his OSCAR

  • My

    @LadyCaca: Lol don’t even mention Brando and Leo in the same sentence.

    Looking forward to Leo in this role on the other hand. The cast looks good and Clint is a genius.

  • fance

    @susieque: Since when you become movie expert? Stay at twitards, this is for adult moviegoers. LOL
    You don’t know what acting mean even if it heats on your head. From judging your comments, you look like you were born in 2001. LOL

  • k


  • Pal

    He looks weird but probaly its a great movie!

  • Elena

    when i first saw this pic i thought it was a still from the aviator during the senate hearings. and wowza those contacts make him look different, it’s kinda eerie!

  • Dasha

    can’t wait can’t wait can’t wait!!! Leo you’re the best!!

  • toni

  • Domino

    @fance: HAHAHAHA! I love you. :*

  • Oh -My, My

    Quite a transformation already, and this is without LD energy yet…. think it is going to be good!

  • Sayuri

    I love him.

  • William Forrester

    I think Leonardo will surely get a nomination for an Academy Award. I think he’ll get a Oscar nomination at least. He is incredible and he is amazing. And I think he will get it. It’s an incredible performance, just wonderful.

  • Elena

    @William Forrester: yeah, oscar = academy award.

  • cont

    its hard to take serious the comments yelling oscar, when this movie hasn’t been released yet. do people even care about performances anymore, so long as their fave actor gets a nom?

  • Adriana

    He looks scary with the coloured contacts!

    Can’t wait for this movie! I heard its coming out on his birthday. I have a feeling 2012 will be his year :-)

    If you were choking on cigar smoke outside Goal sports bar on Wednesday night, you might want to blame Leo. Leonardo DiCaprio hit the Third street sports bar (known more for “scene” than sports) for karaoke night. He smoked cigars outside with longtime friend and fellow actor Lukas Haas, before hanging with Kevin Connolly inside. For authenticity, the bar has been featured in Entourage.

    NO WAY! Not at least he keeps on making Blakey-Flakey happen – when it wont!

  • smoking


    I hope he will eventually think about quitting the cigars for good. Once you get sick it’s so hard to gain your health back :S


    Leo, your hot! I can’t wait to see this movie. It seems really good, and yeah, Mr. DiCaprio deserves his Oscar… I don’t need to watch the trailer to know that.

  • Yay!

    Woo hoo! news about his work! I hope this is a good movie, looks like it will be interesting. I can’t wait to see pics of him filming gatsby. How cool will it be for him to be working with his close friend while abroad! Quality time with trusted friends is good for him.

  • Amused Aussie

    Heres another update:
    Our Sunday telegraph had a report this morning that said LD is due to fly into Sydney this week (in the middle of the week). Tobey, carey and Isla follow the week after. Filming is not expected to start for another 3weeks- Baz is still casting extras and finishing preproduction stuff.
    LD is not staying in a hotel but has rented a house – though they said the location is being kept secret obviously!! Filming is predominately at the fox studios- although there will be some filming around Sydney.

    As someone who lived and worked in Randwick for 5years (fox studios is next to Centennial Park and Randwick)- my guess is the house will probably be in the closest beach burbs Bondi, Clovelly, Turramurra- or possibly something like Double Bay with views of the Harbour

  • thanks

    Thanks Amused Aussie for the gatsby update. I hope he enjoys his time spent working in Australia. I’m glad he continues to work.

  • thanks

    @YUMMY: LOL! Yes he’s hot and I bet he knows it too!

    Do any of the intuitives know if he will get an oscar? Standing Ovation, miss crystal ball, london, dust in the wind, etc What are your thoughts? Do you think it will happen soon or in a couple of years?

  • life

    @14 i agree he really needs 2 grow up and fi.d someone eho can challenge and someone who he womt be ashamed 2 b seen with but lets not glorify blake she’s a social climber end of story
