J. Edgar : The Shooting Script Paperback / softback

Part of the Shooting Script series


As the face of law enforcement in America for almost fifty years, J.

Edgar Hoover was feared and admired, reviled, and revered.

But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career, and his life.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role, "J. Edgar" also stars Academy Award[registered] nominee Naomi Watts ("21 Grams") as Helen Gandy, Hoover's longtime secretary; Armie Hammer ("The Social Network") as Hoover's protege Clyde Tolson; and Oscar[registered] winner Judi Dench ("Shakespeare in Love") as Hoover's over-protective mother, Anne Marie Hoover.

The main cast also includes Josh Lucas ("Life as We Know It") as the legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh, whose son's kidnapping changes the public profile of the FBI, as well as Damon Herriman ("TV's Justified") and Ken Howard ("Grey Gardens"). "J. Edgar" is produced by Eastwood, Oscar[registered] winner Brian Grazer ("A Beautiful Mind", "Frost/Nixon") and Oscar[registered] nominee Robert Lorenz ("Letters from Iwo Jima", "Mystic River").
