Clint Eastwood has confirmed that Dame Judi Dench will star in his upcoming J. Edgar Hoover biopic, J. Edgar. The director also claims that Leonardo DiCaprio and Charlize Theron are likely to appear in the film.
“The script is a very good script and we were all preparing it and he [DiCaprio] liked the script. He actually volunteered for it… We think she [Theron] will be in the film. And Judi Dench is definitely in the film and there we are.”
I guess it should come as no surprise that Dench is on board. After all, who else could pull off such a convincing Hoover? Yeah, I know that was a cheap shot, but the Roy Cohn joke I had planned would have flown straight over your heads, so let’s just put it behind us and call it a day. (Latino Review)
