DiCaprio as J. Edgar Hoover

Is Leonardo DiCaprio ready for a possible Oscar nomination in Clint Eastwood’s upcoming J. Edgar Hoover biopic, “J. Edgar?” The film follows the life of Hoover, focusing on the FBI directors scandalous career and controversial private life as a gay man & rumored cross dresser, which opens October 21st. DiCaprio’s most recent nominations came from The Aviator and The Blood Diamond.

With it being the first of August, it’s still anyone’s guess as far as award season is concerned, but the Eastwood helmed, “J. Edgar,” will surely be on the radar. Also, expect a Best Director nomination for Eastwood.

Here are some pictures from the set of the film, with great wardrobe work bring back the era. You can really put DiCaprio in any period and he can pull it off. Excellent work from the crew in creating and bringing to life the historical time of the film.

J. Edgar also stars Naomi Watts, Josh Lucas, and Armie Hammer.
