Leonardo DiCaprio is in talks to star in the upcoming biopic of former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Two Oscar winners are set to helm the piece.  Clint Eastwood is set to direct while screenwriter Dustin Lance Black has signed on to pen the script.  Black won his Academy Award for Milk, the biopic about Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man to serve in public office in California.

Hoover denied rumors that he was gay and even went so far as to track the personal lives of many powerful people from politics to entertainment. According to his secret files, some surveillance included first lady Eleanor Roosevelt and her alleged lesbian lovers.

"It sounds interesting to say the least," DiCaprio told EW. "There's no contract, no anything, but I'm a huge fan of Clint's."
DiCaprio is only one of the many A-listers who are preparing to go gay in their next movie role. 

Matt Damon, from "The Bourne Trilogy," is rumored to be playing Michael Douglas' lover in the upcoming film about the life of Liberace.
