Leonardo DiCaprio is spotted Friday playing a young J. Edgar Hoover on the set of his latest film J. Edgar in Downtown Los Angeles (Feb 11). He was also spotted the previous day filming a scene at the historic Orpheum Theater (pics here).

"It is not healthy for the nation if his legacy does not include an asterisk for his (archaic) views on race. I'm wondering what Dr. King would say to us."
