In what is expected to be one of the most successful acting roles of his career, Leonardo DiCaprio is currently filming the movie J. Edgar in Los Angeles, with Clint Eastwood directing. The role of J. Edgar Hoover, the legendary head of the FBI in the 1930’s is one that takes a special actor to fill, but it’s not just the regular acting that is making this a unique role for heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s the intimate relationships of a special kind that find him playing for the other team.
With less than three months to go until the April 22nd release date for Water For Elephants, the upcoming romantic drama set in the Depression Era of the 1930’s, and starring Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz, anticipation as to how successful this movie will be is already rising fast, especially now that the first official poster for the movie has been released
If I had to choose a celebrity who always seems to be enjoying what he does, who plays a wide range of fun and challenging roles, and who has had more hit movies and mini-series than you can count on your fingers and toes put together, then my hero would be Tom Hanks.
I can’t think of a single movie in which Tom Hanks has been involved, whether as an actor, producer or director, that I didn’t like, and many of his productions are amongst my most favorite of all time.
