"When I ask if the screenplay addresses reports by former FBI employees that Hoover was a cross-dresser and perhaps a closeted homosexual, Mr. Eastwood says not really. In fact, what attracted him to the screenplay was the fact that it "didn't quite go down that road."


Interesting what Clint says compared to what it says on IMDB:
"Biopic on FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, focusing on his scandalous career and controversial private life as a homosexual and rumored cross dresser."

The IMDb isn't always the most accurate source. ;)

 " Hammer to DiCaprio: "Pucker Up" "

 By Advocate.com Editors

 http://www.advocate.com/News/Daily_News/2011/02/01/Hammer_to_DiCaprio_Pucker_Up/

 
Quote
The Social Network’s Armie Hammer is getting ready for his big screen pairing with Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar Hoover biopic, and he says the Titanic star should get ready to lock lips.

"It's not a kissing scene—it's a ton of kissing scenes," Hammer told E! Online’s Ted Casablanca at Sunday’s Screen Actor’s Guild Awards.

 " Black: Hoover Film Won't Be Degayed "

 By Advocate.com Editors

 http://www.advocate.com/News/Daily_News/2011/02/02/Will_Eastwood_Degay_Hoover_Film_/

 
Quote
Clint Eastwood says his film biography of FBI founder J. Edgar Hoover, alleged secret gay man and cross-dresser, won't "go down that road," reports Wall Street Journal.

 
Quote
Eastwood says he did a lot of his own research on Hoover. "I went back and read probably all the material that [Mr. Black] had read. . . . I went and visited with the FBI in Washington, D.C., and tried to find out as much as I could about people who had worked with Hoover."

 Denis O'Hare who played Dr. Jonathan Steele in "Chqngeilng " joins too.

Quote
For now, he is busy with movie work. "I'm waiting for this movie to come out. It's called The Eagle and comes out Feb. 11," O'Hare told THR. "And then I'm doing a Clint Eastwood movie, J. Edgar Hoover with Leonardo DiCaprio. We start shooting soon. I go out to L.A. in two weeks."

  http://www.afterelton.com/people/2011/02/dustin-lance-black-says-no-degaying-hoover-biopic

The quote we need from the first link is this one:

Quote
But Black says reports his script won't touch on that aspect of Hoover's life are false. He tells AfterElton.com: "To think that somehow you’re going to a make a movie about somebody like J. Edgar and you’re not going to learn what’s in his heart, that’s just not going to happen in a script that I write. It’s unfounded [the idea that the movie is being de-gayed.]"

Leonardo DiCaprio will play Hoover and The Social Network's Armie Hammer has been cast as his suspected lover Clyde Tolson. Earlier this week, Hammer told E! Online's Ted Casablanca that DiCaprio should get ready to pucker up.

" This Is Not What We Thought DiCaprio's 'J. Edgar' Would Look Like "

By Daniel Hubschman , Hollywood.com Staff | Wednesday, February 09, 2011

http://www.hollywood.com/news/This_Is_Not_What_We_Thought_DiCaprios_J_Edgar_Would_Look_Like/7757648

Quote
J. Edgar Hoover was many things, but paperboy was not one of them. Why, then, is director Clint Eastwood making him look like an extra from Disney's Newsies? Beats me, but since this is the actual first look of superstar Leonardo DiCaprio on the set of the Oscar winning filmmaker's new movie, you know you need to have a look.

DiCaprio plays the enigmatic founder of the FBI in the biopic that Brian Grazer is producing. The rest of the all-star cast, which includes Judi Dench, Naomi Watts, Armie Hammer, Josh Lucas and more, is nowhere to be found, but if this doofy looking image is the first to hit the web, I'd expect a handful of better ones to follow.

" Leonardo DiCaprio to play FBI founder "

 By ANI | ANI – Sun, Feb 13 3:59 PM IST

 http://in.news.yahoo.com/leonardo-dicaprio-play-fbi-founder-20110213-022924-427.html

 
Quote
London, Feb 13 (ANI): Clint Eastwood is making a movie about the life of America's legendary crime fighter, J Edgar Hoover.

The actor-turned-director is expected to focus on some of the sleazy secrets of the controversial founder of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, reports the Daily Express.

The Oscar-tipped blockbuster, J. Edgar, is the most eagerly awaited biopic for years, according to critics.
Quote
Eastwood recently hinted that he was well aware of Hoover's double life - and believes he is the perfect filmmaker to bring one of America's greatest figures to life on the screen.

"He (Hoover) was a very complex person. The homosexual aspect is just one of many. I would say that's the least of his problems. But he was also very clever about keeping himself in a certain position in life, so it is an interesting study," he said.He is a fascinating character, and I think I am the right person to do it, not because I knew him or anything, but I did grow up with him. He was an iconic figure," he added.

Filmgoers will have to wait until 20112 to see how 80-year-old director portrays Hoover. The film is currently being shot in the historic quarter of Los Angeles. (ANI)

 20112 ! ?  :o  I am very afraid that I cannot watch this movie!!!!!  :-\........ ;)

Oddsmakers: Eastwood's J. Edgar Oscar Chances ... in late February of 2013.
By ELISABETH RAPPE
FILM.COM
Wednesday, February 16, 2011
Last updated 3:35 p.m. PT

... It's hard to believe the director of so much B-movie madness would be one of the millennium's prestigious filmmakers, but he is. He's a bit of a dark horse though. He won in 1992 with Unforgiven, but returned to his crowd-pleasing ways with stuff like Space Cowboys and Absolute Power. Then in 2003, he carved a permanent spot on the awards circuit with Mystic River. He took home gold in 2004 with Million Dollar Baby, and seemed destined to repeat the win by offering up not one, but two war movies in 2006: Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima, the latter earning him nods for Best Picture and Best Director. His output since has seemed tailor made for the Academy -- Changeling, Gran Torino, Invictus, Hereafter -- and while they're often championed by the old guard of critics and Warner Brothers, they have failed to garner any major nominations. Eastwood has shrugged it off, but it's hard not to see a little longing with his choices of subject matter. As he goes into production on J.Edgar, it's hard not to suspect there's already "For Your Consideration" ads being printed in the mind's eye.

To get three nominations out of seven films is pretty darn good. But to strike out four times in a row suggests odds are a little long for J. Edgar. A biopic is usually a surefire nominee, but Eastwood has had trouble selling his historical and biographical films, as evidenced by Changeling and Invictus. Both were the kind of sturdy stories the Academy adores, but neither really sparked under his direction.

But J. Edgar has a little more edge and flavor to it. ...
