First pictures of Leonardo DiCaprio as J. Edgar Hoover

Here is our first look at Leonardo DiCaprio on the set of Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar.

Thanks to MTV and JustJared, we have some new photos for your viewing pleasure. If there was anyone that can pull off period suits it’s DiCaprio. 

The film is currently shooting in Los Angeles and also stars,  Armie Hammer (Clyde Tolson), Ed Westwick (Agent Smith), Judi Dench, Naomi Watts (Helen Gandy),  Ken Howard (U.S. attorney General Harlan F. Stone), Damon Herriman (Bruno Hauptmann) and Josh Lucas (Charles Lindbergh).
Hoover and Tolson are said to have been lovers, and the movie is going to touch on that. How much will it touch on the subject though? In a recently interview with Eonline Hammer had this to say,

It’s not a kissing scene—it’s a ton of kissing scenes,” Armie, all smiles.
I’m so excited to work with Clint, and from what I hear, he’s not the type of director who has a ton of rehearsals and takes. I think we’re just sort of thrown in there and have to make it happen.
