Armie Hammer, Leonardo DiCaprio In 'J. Edgar': 'Lots Of Kissing Scenes'

Posted: Updated:

Leonardo DiCaprio's latest on-screen love is a little bit different than the ones from his previous movies.

DiCaprio is set to star in director Clint Eastwood's film 'J. Edgar,' a biopic about original, controversial FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, and because it is a longtime rumor that Hoover was a closeted homosexual and cross-dresser, DiCaprio will be taking on that part of the role, as well. But who will he be kissing?

Armie Hammer, 'The Social Network' star who joined the cast as Clyde Toulson, Hoover's Associate Director of the FBI and rumored lover, spoke about the kissing scenes at the SAG Awards.

"It's not a kissing scene--it's a ton of kissing scenes," he told E! Online.

Speaking earlier in January about his role, Hammer told Collider that there will be some heavy makeup involved:

"I'm playing Toulson up to his elderly age!" he said. "Makeup stuff comes within the next couple weeks. We're definitely doing a lot of wardrobe stuff right now, but the makeup stuff we haven't done yet."
