Ed Westwick Joins Leonardo DiCaprio’s Latest Film

Celebuzz / January 11, 2011

Ed Westwick is taking it from Gossip Girl to the big screen with a role in the upcoming J. Edgar Hoover biopic.

Ed, who joins an already stellar cast of Leonardo DiCaprio and The Social Network’s Armie Hammer, will play the biographer who Hoover contracts to write his biography. According to Deadline, Ed’s character is a “clean cut operative with writing skill.” A far cry from the coniving Chuck Bass, no?

Leonardo will play Hoover and Armie plays his secretary and secret love Clyde Tolson in the film, directed by Clint Eastwood.

This movie is definitely flourishing in the hunk department. What do you think? Will you see J. Edgar? Hit up the comments and let us know!
