1. Leo just might win his first Oscar. . .
biopics are the way to that Red Carpet and the accolades that follow.

5. He's turned into a real actor
I had this discussion with my husband a few days ago, and he convinced me that DiCaprio isn't a pretty-boy lead any more. Since Gangs of New York, he's been doing increasingly serious work. Have a look at the IMDB listing: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000138/

6. I just checked, and The Straight Dope says that's an urban legend
http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2423/was-j-edgar-hoover-a-cross-dresser

One more example of how the oligarchs plot to keep the truth from us, you're thinking not that this is something you necessarily want to see covered in sixth grade social studies. In point of fact, however, the alleged transvestitism of John Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI from 1924 until his death in 1972, has never been established, and reputable historians say it's an urban legend.

The story probably got its start because of more plausible rumors that Hoover was gay. He and his right-hand man, Clyde Tolson, were constant companions for more than 40 years, even vacationing together, and both remained lifelong bachelors. (Hoover lived with his mom until she died in 1938.) They say Richard Nixon, on hearing of Hoover's death, exclaimed with his customary delicacy, "Jesus Christ! That old cocksucker!"

The cross-dressing thing, however, is a definite no.

8. I've read that he was a weirdo transvestite. Not an executive or action transvestite a la Eddie
Izzard. :evilgrin: But apparently this screenplay won't include that part of his life but will explore his "friendship" with Clyde Tolsen.
