Leonardo DiCaprio is Mad with Power in New ‘J. Edgar’ Posters

In case a poster of all-American boy Leonardo DiCaprio, charged with a furious jingoism as the FBI’s Babe Ruth J. Edgar Hoover isn’t quite patriotic enough for you, there’s also one of him doing so with the nation’s flag as the background.

Directed by Clint Eastwood (this just gets Americaner and Americaner), J. Edgar will inspect the private, internal life of one of our country’s history’s most influential, powerful, and infamous individuals.

J. Edgar Hoover is quite the controversial figure. To some, he is seen as a criminal: a tyrant who represented Big Brother, and the man who was responsible for Martin Luther King’s death. To others, he was just a guy who liked wearing dresses. …I don’t know if there were any other perspectives on J. Edgar Hoover. I wasn’t around, so all I know is what they’d say about him in All in the Family. And those are pretty much the bases they covered there.

Also starring are Naomi Watts, Judi Dench, Armie HammerStephen Root and Josh Lucas. J. Edgar will reach theaters November 9.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
