Ed Westwick to Star in J. Edgar Hoover Biopic

by at . Comments

Eastwood. DiCaprio. Westwick.

Okay, so our favorite Gossip Girl star isn't on par with those screen legends quite yet, but Ed Westwick has signed on for a role in their upcoming J. Edgar Hoover biopic.

J. Edgar focuses on the career of controversial FBI director and his life of scandal as a closeted gay man and rumored cross-dresser. DiCaprio will portray Hoover in the work.

Ed Westwick has signed on for a role in J. Edgar.

In the movie written by Dustin Lance Black, the Academy Award winning writer of Milk, Westwick will play clean-cut FBI Agent Smith, who apparently gets a little too close to the truth while ghost-writing the secretive Hoover's memoirs.

Nice to see Ed branching out and building his career away from the Upper East Side!

In other Ed news, he and Jessica Szohr are apparently over again ...

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
