This cast just keeps getting better. Naomi Watts is the latest actor to sign on to Clint Eastwood's biopic J. Edgar about the first director of the FBI.
According to Variety, Watts will play Helen Grandy, Hoover's personal secretary who worked closely with him for many decades. She was responsible for destroying damning papers on many important men following Hoover's death in 1972.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Judi Dench, Ed Westwick, and Josh Lucas are all set to star as well. The film will be released sometime in 2012.
