Leonardo DiCaprio has a new male love interest in his forthcoming biopic of FBI honcho J. Edgar Hoover, but don't expect him to indulge in Hoover's alleged cross-dressing, reports Michael Musto on his Village Voice blog.
"I know this for a fact because a reporter friend of mine actually asked the actor about it," Musto writes.
The Social Network's Armie Hammer has reportedly been cast to play lawyer-turned-FBI-official Clyde Tolson, a man many believe was also Hoover's longtime secret lover. Clint Eastwood will direct DiCaprio in the film, based on a screenplay by Milk's Oscar-winner Dustin Lance Black.
