Jeffrey Donovan Is Bobby Kennedy in ‘J. Edgar’

Jeffrey DonovanMost would kill for the chance to work with legendary auteur/actor Clint Eastwood once in their career. That must make Burn Notice star Jeffrey Donovan guilty of double homicide, because he’ll be going back to work with the filmmaker on his latest picture J. Edgar.

Their last pairing was on 2008’s acclaimed drama Changeling, in which Donovan played LAPD Captain J.J. Jones (a performance that earned him decent fanfare). He hasn’t appeared in a film since, as he’s been very committed to the hit USA show that has taken his career to the next level. Playing a renowned figure like Robert Kennedy in this new film certainly won’t hurt his chances at getting more movie roles and I can’t wait to see more of the dashing Jeffrey Donovan on the big screen.

For those unaware, J. Edgar follows the exploits of the infamous founder and longtime director of the FBI J. Edgar Hoover. Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Hoover, while Armie Hammer, Judi Dench, Naomi Watts, Ed Westwick, Josh Lucas and more co-star. The film is currently shooting and is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2012.
