Deadline reports that Naomi Watts (Eastern Promises) has joined Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar.Watts took over the role when Charlize Theron left the film to focus on other projects. The cast is lead by Leonardo DiCaprio with Armie Hammer, Josh Lucas, Ed Westwick and Judi Dench.
I've been hesitant to report on the film considering Eastwood's tepid outings with Changeling and Hereafter have burned me before. Let's just hope Eastwood can return to the greatness of Mystic River. It also feels like Clint has been trying too hard to make Oscar bait rather making a solid entertaining film.
