Armie Hammer signs on for Hoover

Armie Hammer has arrived! And seriously, after effortlessly playing two people in The Social Network, who wouldn’t be knocking at this guy’s door?

Confirmed by Deadline, the young actor has just been cast by Clint Eastwood to star in Hoover. Hammer will portray Clyde Tolson, the right hand man and secret lover to Leonardo DiCaprio’s  J. Edgar Hoover;  a role that was rumored to go to Joaquin Phoenix a few months back. Obviously that didn’t pan out, though it would have been an equally delicious choice.

    That’s really cool. This movie seems to be casting great actors.

    By the way, I went to Hans Zimmer’s walk of fame ceremony and after reading that he decided not to score the new Superman movie his bio that was read said that he was. It may be the only think good in the movie, lol
