Shooting on the film is set to commence in the coming weeks, so it appears as though casting on Clint Eastwood’s upcoming film, J. EDGAR, is looking to be rounded out.

The latest to join the film, according to Deadline, is Josh Lucas. Lucas has hopped aboard the project and will play iconic pilot Charles Lindbergh.

For those who may not know, Lindbergh is an essential part of this hotly talked about film, as it was his child being kidnapped by Bruno Hauptmann (played by Damon Herriman in the forthcoming project), helped launch the FBI, which was created by our lead, J. Edgar Hoover. The organization was created after the conviction of Hauptmann later came into question, after police began being accused of doctoring evidence.

The film currently boasts a script penned by Dustin Lance Black, and a cast including Judi Dench, Armie Hammer, Ed Westwick, with Leonardo DiCaprio in line to take the titular role. Personally, while I’m not a massive fan of Lucas as an actor, he definitely adds a bit of depth to an already stunning cast. While Eastwood may be a bit less of an interesting name than one would imagine as of late, this may be the project that rights the Eastwood ship. Fingers crossed.
