Clint Eastwood has cast Burn Notice's Jeffrey Donovan as Bobby Kennedy in his upcoming J. Edgar Hoover biopic, J. Edgar. Donovan announced the casting via his twitter account with the following tweet,
I fly to LA Sunday. I have been cars as Bobby Kennedy opposite LD in HOOVER. excited. working with Mr Eastwood again. Dreams come true.
Eastwood and Donovan both worked together on the film Changeling, which I thought was a great movie. Not everyone agrees with me on that. Anyway, Donovan is a solid actor, and I think it's great that he landed this role, he'll do a great job.
The film is currently shooting in Los Angeles and also stars Leonardo DiCaprio (Hoover) Armie Hammer (Clyde Tolson), Ed Westwick (Agent Smith), Judi Dench, Naomi Watts (Helen Gandy), Ken Howard (U.S. attorney General Harlan F. Stone), Damon Herriman (Bruno Hauptmann) and Josh Lucas (Charles Lindbergh).
