Charlize Theron and Armie Hammer to Sex Up J. Edgar Hoover

Wednesday, December 8 by

Government bureaucracy isn’t normally depicted as the sexiest of career paths, but Charlize Theron might soon change that. She’s been offered the role of Helen Gandy, eccentric FBI man J. Edgar Hoover’s personal assistant, in Clint Eastwood’s greatly anticipated Hoover biopic, with Leo DiCaprio already cast as J. Edgar himself. Also in talks to join the cast is Armie Hammer, the guy who played those rich, blond twins a.k.a. The Winklevi in The Social Network. He would portray Clyde Tolson, Hoover’s right-hand-man and rumored lover. Eastwood previously offered the part of Tolson to professional crazy person Joaquin Phoenix, who reportedly turned it down after learning that the role would require him to do more than just stare at things intensely.

    Joaquin Phoenix was never offered Clyde Tolson, and thus never turned it down. Eastwood said this regarding the rumors: “No. I don’t know where that came from. Didn’t he become a rapper?”
