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 ...
