Leonardo DiCaprio, Judi Dench, and Armie Hammer are caught on set filming J. Edgar last night at Los Angeles' historic Orpheum Theater. Of course DiCaprio is playing the lead as former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, while Dench is playing his mother, and Hammer his assistant/lover.
The trio were recreating the 1935 premiere of G-Men, which starred James Cagney. Hoover personally approved the script of the film and even assigned FBI agents to monitor the authenticity of the production.
A young actress playing Shirley Temple was also spotted on set. Hoover and Temple were known to be good friends in real life. What an odd pairing!
