Picture via Slash FilmHere is the first photo of Leonardo DiCaprio from Clint Eastwood's new film "J. Edgar." This is the first time that Eastwood, one of the greatest living directors has worked with Leo (one of the greatest living actors) and I don't know about you, but I'm thrilled. Written by "Milk" scribe Dustin Lance Black, this film is literally Oscar bait of the highest caliber.
Eastwood has assembled a supporting cast that is full of movie stars both current and future. Joining Leo is Judi Dench, Naomi Watts, Josh Lucas, Armie Hammer, Ed Westwick, and Ken Howard. And as for Leo, I've read the script and don't worry he gets to spend a lot of time doing his batshit crazy thing, Hopefully people will realize that this type of acting is incredible and deserves to be recognized with a statue.
