Leonardo DiCaprio is considering playing gay in the upcoming Clint Eastwood biopic of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, Entertainment Weekly reported.

Legendary actor-director Eastwood is reportedly wooing DiCaprio to play the film's lead.

“It sounds interesting to say the least,” DiCaprio told EW. “There's no contract, no anything, but I'm a huge fan of Clint's.”

On board is screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, who won a 2008 Oscar for Milk, the Gus Van Sant biopic film about Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected man in the United States.

The news comes on the heels of the announcement that two additional Hollywood heavyweights are preparing to play gay.

Bourne trilogy star Matt Damon will star opposite Michael Douglas in an upcoming film about the life of uber-entertainer Liberace. Douglas will play the flamboyant pianist, while Damon will take on the role of Scott Thornson, Liberace's alleged lover.

Hoover vehemently denied rumors that he was gay and even appeared obsessed with the sexuality of powerful people. His secret files reportedly included surveillance material on Eleanor Roosevelt's alleged lesbian lovers.
