J. Edgar Hoover, powerful head of the F.B.I. for nearly 50 years, looks back on his professional and personal life.
Bradley Cooper auditioned for the role of Clyde Tolson.
J. Edgar Hoover:
Let me tell you something. The SCLC has direct Communist ties. Even great men can be corrupted, can't they? Communism is not a political party. It is a disease. It corrupts the soul, turning men, even the gentlest of men, into vicious evil tyrants.
When Hoover is cracking the shell of eggs with Tolson, you can clearly see the fat pad around DiCaprio's waist as he bends over.
