Will “J Edgar” finally Land Leo an Oscar?

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the most talented and bankable actors in Hollywood who pretty much has the world in his hands. What he doesn’t have in his little fingers is a golden statue named Oscar. Despite three previous nominations for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, The Aviator and Blood Diamond, Leo has gone home empty-handed every time. However, that all may change with his next big movie, the biopic of J Edgar Hoover, J. Edgar, directed by five time Oscar winner Clint Eastwood. The film takes on this iconic man’s story as he embodied the face of law enforcement for decades running the FBI and becoming a very powerful and controversial figure, not to mention having a very secret private life. And that private life will be explored as well including his rumored romantic relationship with coworker and confidante Clyde Tolson played by Armie Hammer (The Social Network). The film also stars some heavy hitters including Oscar winner Judi Dench and Oscar nominee Naomi Watts plus Josh Lucas, Jeffrey Donovan and Ken Howard. Watch for the film to play into the Oscar race in practically every field from costumes, to score, writing, direction and of course performances when it opens on November 9th. And now, the first trailer has hit the web. Take a look at Leo in J. Edgar below and let me know if you think the fourth time will be his Oscar charm.

    Leo looks like he’s going for the Oscar here and hopefully he gets it, but Eastwood is usually hit-or-miss nowadays which is why I’m not too siked for it just yet. Nice post.
