Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar continues to add to its cast

Clint Eastwood’s next film, the biopic J. Edgar, is shaping up.

Deadline has announced that Josh Lucas (The Lincoln Lawyer) has signed on to play the aviator Charles Lindbergh. The film follows Hoover during the investigation into the mishandling of the infamous ‘Lindbergh baby’ case, so presumably Lucas’ role will be fairly significant.

The film stars Leonardo Dicaprio as Hoover, Damon Herriman (CSI) as kidnapper Bruno Hauptmann and Judi Dench as Hoover’s mother.

The film is written by Dustin Lance Black (Milk) and will be hitting theaters potentially before the end of the year.
