Leonardo DiCaprio is J. Edgar Hoover

Leonardo DiCaprio is J. Edgar Hoover

Offering up a first look in a new role, Leonardo DiCaprio was hard at work on the set of "J. Edgar" in Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday (February 8).

Being directed by Clint Eastwood, the film is a "biopic on FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, focusing on his scandalous career and controversial private life as a homosexual and rumored cross dresser."

Boasting quite the cast, the drama - due out in 2012 - also stars Judi Dench (who was also on set), as well as Ed Westwick, Naomi Watts and Armie Hammer.

Making for one of the more anticipated aspects of the flick - it's been reported that Leo shares a number of smooches with Mr Hammer, who plays his second in command.

Of the many liplocks, the "Social Network" star recently told E!, “It’s not a kissing scene - it’s a ton of kissing scenes. [Leo is] a talented actor. I’m not nervous or afraid of it being awkward. The script is great. The scenes are in there for a reason. I’m really excited.”
