Naomi Watts Signs For Clint Eastwood's 'J. Edgar'

Reported by Outsiders - 12:10 AM 2011.01.26
Deadline is reporting that Naomi Watts has signed to play Helen Gandy in Clint Eastwood-directed biopic, "J. Edgar."

Helen Gandy was J. Edgar Hoover’s loyal secretary for 54 years. Hoover called her indispensible and she was the ultimate keeper of his secrets and a behind the scenes influence on the workings of the FBI. After Hoover died, Gandy spent weeks destroying his personal file, which contained the incriminating material that he used to manipulate and control the most powerful figures in D.C.

Watts takes over the role from Charlize Theron as she dropped out for another role. But already signed for roles include Leonardo DiCaprio, Ed Westwick, Josh Lucas, Damon Herriman, Ken Howard and Armie Hammer.
